the green room

Maybe it’s the chill (high of 56° F here today!) of impending Autumn, or the fact that my houses have been getting less and less color saturated with every move, but I’m feeling the urge to cozy the living room right up with a richly toned wall. I’m leaning toward Cat’s Eye or Irish Moss from Benjamin Moore, both are deep hues with a touch of that Paris Green verdigris tone – like a super saturated version of Farrow and Ball’s Arsenic.

I’m giving it a week with the swatches taped up to see how I feel about it.

Road Trip: montreal in summer

balconiesI’m so behind on sharing some of our tiny trips this summer. Instagram makes me super lazy. We had a really great time this trip and feel like we got to know the city much better, even with just 24 hours to explore. We’re ready to move to the Plateau, especially into the houses around Square Saint-Louis. Anyone who’d like to offer me a job where I could learn French as I go: call me.

This Montreal Places board on Pinterest that Annie and I have been adding to is getting pretty extensive, so we clearly have to drive up when the leaves start turning, right? There’s something to be said for the fact that being in a city makes me feel like a happy normal human being. I should probably explore that.
