I’ve been working on re-doing my office and I’ve known for several months that I wanted to paint a room navy blue. I’ve flip flopped on which room it was going to be and then finally chose my office.
The chosen navy hue is Benjamin Moore’s Blue Note.
And I couldn’t be happier. Its just the right the depth, the right amount of blue and I requested an eggshell finish for a little sheen. I went standard white with the trim and this time I decided to use a satin finish instead of my standard semi-gloss.
So we’re off to a good start.
I’ve collected a couple of other things like this print from NC photographer Valerie Chiang,
When I showed my Mom, she said, “so what…she’s at the fair?” So she clearly LOVES it. The print looks fantastic against the navy wall, perfect really.
And I found this vintage dresser at a thrift store for $60, it functions like a credenza. It needs to be painted white but for right now the natural finish is tolerable.
I plan to scoop this horse-y for over the dresser,
Or this b + w photograph–I’ve been watching this one for a while,
Horse and Halter
I like the idea of a b + w image in this spot, I was inspired by the photo of the woman at the Lonny office, not sure if the image is by Patrick Cline?
But on second thought I could always be persuaded by a good abstract ocean landscape,
Another element I’m waffling over is the light fixture. I was almost convinced that I would order this,
In a way, I consider it to be an affordable version of a Stray Dog Design. I was all set to order until I read the reviews. The most concerning was that it wasn’t pure white. I’m not really looking for an off-white or a gray-white in this room. And I don’t really know how I feel about paying that much and then spraying it white?
And so everyday I look at more light fixtures in hopes that just the right one will emerge.
