Metamorphosis Monday and Blue Monday – Color On the Walls!

Metamorphosis Monday, is hosted by Susan of Between Naps on the Porch. Go there for a listing of more transformations.

Blue Monday is sponsored by our gracious Sally at Smiling Sally. Check her blog for a list of other participating posts.

All along, since moving in to my house in 1992, I have always had walls that are painted in off-white. My April 29, 2009 post, "Eclectic Wall Grouping" showed one wall in my center hallway. Here is a photo of how they looked on the off-white walls.

In July I had the dining room, hall, and adjoining wall in the living painted in Benjamin Moore "Quiet Moments," which is a very soft blue. With the new color paint on the wall the artwork now seems to pop:

The blue drapes in the dining room looks great with the new paint color.
The soft color also enhances the wall art and the dark mahogany furniture.

I am also linking to Cielo’s "Show Off Your Cottage Monday." Visit her to enjoy more lovely homes.

Next week I will continue to describe how new paint -- green in the living room and stairway, and soft yellows in the bedroom and bath – have transformed my living spaces.

I love the pale blue color and it does make the pictures more special. It is a wonderful look for the dining area.
