Room with a view

18 02 2009

Look what I got to see from the bedroom window when I woke up Sunday morning! I was helping some friends spiffy up their lake house. We did lots of painting in a palette of lovely lake-inspired colors, which they allowed me the creative freedom to formulate—Chameleon Green, Poppy Pods Brown, and Hidden Spring Seafoam Blue. We finished (about 95% complete) two bedrooms, more than half of the kitchen, and one hallway and one of the bathrooms—which was quite an accomplishment considering we didn’t start painting until 8:00 p.m. Saturday night and worked from 8:30 a.m. until 5:30 p.m. on Sunday. Still to come—hallways and a bathroom to coat in a lovely warm gold color, and “Something Blue” for the high ceiling in the screened porch (the better to bring the sky indoors!). We were quite industrious and all over the house, painting up a storm. Lucky for them, I just happen to love to paint. They gave me the “room with a view” as a special treat. It is the most peaceful place and it’s only an hour’s drive from home. I photographed the view from their boat dock in November here.
