Once upon a time, my office had blue wallpaper with a blue border that coordinated with the valence which has blue bands. Even the blinds are blue. I was a happy camper, but time and little grandchildren made for some rough places on this wallpaper. It was time for it to go!
We hired three men to strip off the wallpaper and paint the room a neutral tan. However, you know that I'm really not saying good-bye to all my blue. Notice the many touches of blue around: picture, books, basket.
I don't know why flashes make for funny colors, but this shot above is not the true color.
This final shot is the true color. It's Benjamin Moore AC-31 hot spring stones. I like it, but I already miss my gorgeous blue wallpaper.
