Taking my cue from this old millinery rose I decided to paint our dining room. A color called Madrid made by Portola (thanks Christine!) seemes like the right shade right now. It's a little pinky - maybe even a little too fleshy....but I wanted a warm inviting color so that my dining room feels like it's own little gem. I thought I would hang some brown transferware pieces on the wall to ground it a bit. I remember years ago a friend telling me that this soft peachy color was the most relaxing color you could paint a room.
The problem is, I can't really make a decision about a whole room until I have painted the whole room - the large swatch on the wall just doesn't do the trick for me. So I'll paint the whole room and live with it for a while - I just better hurry and finish it before JZ gets home!
Sofia got into the act and added her two cents to the project - seems appropriate.
