Almost ready for paint and color!

Bucky from Dunham Brothers Paint, Marshfield, VT works on finishing taping and "mudding" dad's living room and space.

Dad's living space is now ready for paint and color, and then flooring. paint is such a lovely thing- making everything have an air of some color, but it is so difficult to choose through thousands of colors and color schemes. My parents traditionally had little color in the house, mom claimed it was the best way to exhibit all the art on the walls. Over the years I have come to believe that wonderful colors on the walls can actually enhance the display of art and compliment it in a way that white just cannot do. My good friend Nina has a wonderful sense of color in her home and the space breathes a calm refreshing space, so I have borrowed this pale green "air" palette to enhance dad's living space with a warm pale green, as I will most likely use upstairs in my studio space. for now, we test with a few quarts and see what inspires or moves us! My studio will begin drywall installation on Monday. It is great to see things moving along in a positive direction.
Mudding and taping continuing. We are excited to see the changes in the quality of light in the rooms, and the reflected light off the walls. This living space is 14 x 28 feet from right to left with 9 foot ceilings. It looks much narrower here.
The columns at the end of the living room have been built out, and from this view (above) you cannot really tell how much deep the window sills are.
