Circular Reasoning

1 Jun

I have been searching on the web for images of rooms painted with Martha Stewart’s Violet Aster paint and when I put the name of the paint in quotes, the photos of the room I just took are in the search results. Crazy Internet.

Here is a room painted with what is described as a color “very similar to” MS’s Violet Aster: awomanintheworld.blogspot.com

And here’s a paint swatch: here

I think it could look very dishy with the navy drapes, white trim, and gold ceiling (especially as I will leave them all untouched and will only be painting the walls) — it all hangs on the rug, though.

Views of living room as is

1 Jun

Per Erin’s request, here is a panoramic view of the living room as is. The walls are a deep orange red color, they aren’t as blue-red as they appear in most of these photos. I’m off to look at (and hopefully come home with) a big old rug from CL tomorrow and if I get it, it will inform the color choice. I’m also going to move the green-ish leather couch down to the Monkey Room and move the viney Victorian couch (cat sitting on in photo) to the living room.

I’m looking at the Martha Stewart Color Chart and am leaning towards Violet Aster or Wampum.
