How the Living/Dining/Kitchen Walls Might Look, Part 2

A few days ago I posted “old walls” inspiration photos whittled down from hundreds collected over a year of blogging and planning to paint the India apartment. These photos should keep me focused because as we all know, there’s an endless number of ideas in this world! But most homes do not have an endless number of walls. Too bad about that, huh?

These images are similar to my previous post about living/dining room inspiration, but warmer color …

  1. Oh, this is going to be fabulous! I can’t BELIEVE what an amazing resource library of inspiration you have. You are great to follow on Pinterest!! Thanks so much for loving my stencils too! :)

    • Thank you so much Melanie! I get a little addicted to Pinterest. :) But it’s more fun to share inspiration than keep it on a folder on my computer. I am so excited to paint with your stencils and I hope I can live up to the vision in my mind …
