Our upstairs hallway/landing/library is coming along nicely! We painted the walls a super-rich chocolate brown. Well, some of the walls. We only painted the two walls where the bookshelves are, because there’s too much stuff in the way to paint the rest! We’ll get to it eventually.
The ceiling is the same white it was. I’m not sure what to do with it yet. Brandon wants to keep it white, which is the obvious ‘safe’ choice. I don’t really mind it because we’re painting all of the wood trim white, and the bookshelves are white too. It’s just so stark though. I don’t know if I’d want it to be the same brown as the walls, because it gets quite dark at night. Maybe a brownish/taupe color? Something a bit lighter than the walls, but still complentary? Or a color from the carpet (tan)? Any ideas?
