After sitting in our garage now for several weeks, a pair of newly painted shutters have found their rightful home on either side of the
large, overpowering, room dominating tv in our living room.
Yesterday, using creamy grosgrain ribbon, I hung two boxwood wreaths from our local Fred Meyer over the tops of the shutters, adding a touch of spring to a very spring-ready Alaskan family.
Painting this wall was one of my first projects when we moved into our house almost five years ago. Although Benjamin Moore’s Bonewhite has stayed the same, I repainted the back of the shelves from the original Farrow and Ball’s Green Blue~

to Farrow and Ball’s Light Blue after coming to the conclusion that Green Blue just wasn’t soft enough. (Both colors look darker in this post than the really are.)

The decor on this wall has changed quite a bit as I’ve tried to figure out what works best. Here are a few Before pics of the evolution of both the wall and our living room space.
In this picture, the shelves are still painted Green Blue, and we don”t have our tv yet.
