Shades of grey and black...




I´ve been painting furnitures for the diningroom. I was very unsure about the color "Srone beige" until I added some details to get a feeling of the final look. I want the room to be dusty, shades of grey added some black, and only a few colorfull items like the turquise vase. I have to figure out what to do with the walls, whether I´m going with wallpaper or not.

Ideas...



My head is constantly working on ideas for how to decorate Obsidian Hall. I do have the sense of it, but still not a specific plan for the floor and walls. Though I´m down with the flu these days, I´m trying to spend the little energi left in my body, creating this blog, painting furnitures and taking photos.

The kitchen furnitures used to be blue and very plain. I wanted to get the feeling of old tarnished furnitures. I´m really satisfied with the look of the tables, but the photos reveals that i´ve probably tarnished it to much. Now it looks not just old, but also very very dirty at close up. Which wasn´t the purpose...

Welcome...


Welcome stranger, to Obsidian Hall. The house was given to me as a gift from my mom. She thought it was about time, that I found all of my boxes stuffed with tiny furnitures and things, that have been hidden away on the attic for years.

I´ve started painting the facade. The facade was smooth and pale yellow. I don´t like yellow and found that the white windows "disappeared" towards the pale color. I´m painting it Dark Nepal Grey, a brownish grey paint that I´ve used in our livingroom years ago. I´m putting in sand to give some texture to the facade.
