Like a Perpetual Snowday


This weekend our two painter friends painted the kitchen ceiling and skylight walls. Wow, the difference! These had never been painted and had aged to a dark pine color--not the best.

Now the kitchen and utility room (open to each other and sharing a ceiling) are filled with so much white light that it feels like a perpetual snowday.


Up next: I'm painting the entire kitchen pale pink. Benjamin Moore's Melted Ice Cream, starting tomorrow.

Sounds so pretty! I don't think pink is used enough on walls. Some day I want a bathroom with pink tile, very 50's.

Never having experienced a snow day I'll just have to believe you Anna. :) I'm sure it's a huge difference after the pine.

I love white ceilings. I paint mine with a semi-gloss paint so it reflects light. Yes, it makes a huge difference, especially to those of us who have to endure seasonal affect disorder and need all the light we can get in the winter time. The pink sounds lovely! I used blush pink in my bedroom and find it so restful.

I once had a bedroom painted with that Benjamin Moore color (Melted Ice Cream) ! It was such a joy to wake up in every morning, and very flattering to my skin tone, too. I'd love to do a room in that color now but don't know if it would suit our traditional/ Scandinavian Modern (depending on what room of the house you're in) decor -- or if my husband would like it.

Oh, when we painted the dark walnutty paneling in the living room five years ago, it was winter - and what a difference it made! I didn't realize how the dark was dragging me down in the short, dark days.

I can that you want a pink kitchen by Christmas!

Light pink is BEAUTIFUL! I need a picture of that. It is so soothing and soft. My husband doesn't even mind my lovely soft curtains and faintly pink floral duvet in our bedroom.
