Very peaceful and calm, even if it’s all yellow and gold. Healing sort of room.
I love the stars on the ceiling—I oriented them with the directions, which means they’re canted somewhat. The house was built in relationship to the hill behind it, not to the directions. 7 years ago
The only thing left is to paint the starts on the ceiling. The curtains are up, the pictures are up, everything’s painted. Lovely, sunny, beautiful room on the border of the house (where it moves form the 1790 part of the house to the 1840 part). 7 years ago
IT’s honey yellow, with goldenrod trim; the ceiling is midnight blue. I still have the stars to paint on the ceiling, and the curtains to sew. 7 years ago
I’ve got it all in my head now; not at all what I expected. Litght yellow walls, and I’ve got excellent yellow fabric with bees and laurel wreaths (that’d be Napoleon’s anti-Merovingian symbolism) AND fleurs-de-lis (ha, ha! Napoleon! thake that!), all woven in in white.
Love that fabric.
And you can’t go wrong with bees. 7 years ago
Much to my delight, when we came home we found the finished floor to be even more lovely than I’d expected. The seam between the 1790’s half of the house and the 1840’s half of the house runs down the middle of the room, with the two different floors on either side; in the seam you can see the tops of the original structural standing beams; the space is filled in with whatever was concrete in 1840—and the whole thing is amazing and beautiful.
True boundary manifestation. 7 years ago
We’ve heard from the contractor and the floor’s done
- the carpet’s off, and the linoleum’s been sanded off, and the two different floors have been sanded - and he’s left the concrete strip down the middle.
so it’s a manifestation of the boundary energy in the house.
Quite satisfactory. 7 years ago
The possibilities are vast. So I’m leaving time to think, to wait and see where it is I want to be—that way I’ll knonw what it is I want to do. 7 years ago
