Here's a couple of photos of our living room right after we painted it. We love color and this one is Benjamin Moore "Nacho Cheese". The painting above the fireplace was our first real painting which Dad and Hazel gave us -- its from Ireland. The fan is one we choose and had installed -- there was nothing at all on the ceiling -- no fan or light. We were going for some combo of Arts and Crafst and 1930s aviation style. It is a really comfortable room and great to read and talk in. There is a bay window too -- from which we can see what is going on in the circle at the dead end of our street and up the road.
