Finally, last night I got the curtains and the last of the pictures up. I must admit, at first I hated the blue, and I mean hated it, but it is growing on me. And I love how the things on the wall pop against the color. I think my grandmother's tea cups look especially nice. When the wall was white they didn't really show up very well.
You can't really tell in the photos, but there is a small bit of blue in the floral on the curtains. (Montague Parchment by Waverly.) It doesn't match the wall perfectly, but it "goes" quite well. (Wouldn't Stacy London be proud of me!) In case you're curious the color is "blue denim" from Ace Hardware.
The only thing left to do is to get a piece of trim for the wall to cover up the "seam" where the blue paint meets the cream of the entryway. I just can't decide if I want to finish it to match the woodwork of it it would look better if it matched the creamy wall.
So, what do you think?
