Hawthorne Ghent GreensOctober 7, 2013
We leave next Sunday for New York, and we are getting incredibly excited to see all of the projects that have been completed since we were last a Hawthorne. Painting is almost complete and I could not wait to show you all. We decided on varying shades of green. It just felt right for the space. Plus it works nicely with all of the beautiful white that we so loved when we first saw the house. I think it is a good marriage of the 2 hues.
Benjamin Moore Aura semi-gloss was just the ticket to give a nice sheen to the walls. We love how the light plays off the semi-gloss. The care is quite easy too, as you can just gently wipe off marks. The hallway leading up or coming down from the bedrooms is a very happy green.
The living room a warmer green to envelope you right as you come in. We are going to fill these walls with artwork, which I think this shade of green with work nicely with.
The dining room a tad brighter than the living room. We had a wall painted with chalkboard paint. More on that tomorrow.
The vintage Thonet chair seats were pretty beat up, so we had them painted the same shade of green as the walls. A quick fix until we find a fabric we really like.
And the deepest shade of handsome green for the master bedroom. Once we get to the house next week, I will shoot it with more goodies added and do another post where I will add the Benjamin Moore paint color names and numbers too. I just wanted to give you all a little sneak peek of how things were progressing. Thank you all for joining us on this journey…
