I'm thinking of gettin' my gloss on.

It's no secret that I have been struggling with the design of my own home. And when I say "struggle", I mean I haven't done anything.  And when I say "anything", I mean I haven't done a thing. I haven't even put up one picture. Not even set one piece of furniture in the place it is suppose to be in. That beautiful walk in pantry that I was so insistent upon, still has never been organized. The food is placed in the same spot that  my wonderful  movers so carelessly threw it in. And, I think my family and friends are getting really tired of it. (I'm getting there) Although they haven't said anything about it, I 'm betting they aren't loving my butcher paper drapes in my dining room... I can't say I blame them. It's high time I put up real drapes.After all, it has been... eight months.

Spearheading this sudden burst of motivation,  these beautiful glossy walls. I think I may start with these beauties. My family room only has about forty square feet of paintable wall space. The rest is either windows or cabinetry.  I'm thinking of a charcoal grey lacquer. I always wanted library walls done in this treatment but I think my family room is as close to a library as I am going to come.  On a completely different note, I am loving  these herringbone wood floors. I fought for those. But I lost that battle. I also totally dig the color palette. Maybe I should just see if this home is for sale.

I love the way the lacquer trim and walls all blend together. I'm thinking this wouldn't work
with a contrasting trim. And look at that wall to wall carpet. Can't beat that with a stick.
It is smashing.

Oh my heavens to betsy! I am sooo in love with this. You are going to do this in my new house. I HAVE to have a library, it is more important to me than nearly any other room. You MUST do this or teach me how to do it!!
