original sketch by fatwizard, applied to ecru silk and mounted on black fabric coreboard.
i decided that the focal point i can't get around in the living room is the one that the room is now to be built around. a royal blue lamp with a victorian curved and fringed ecru shade.
so the room is to be cream and royal blue and black. i think that may be the answer to the heavy wood furniture i've been looking for. the hope chest would look really good royal blue with cream details on it, and so would the other cabinet, those being the biggest pieces in the room, if i just painted them, it would pull the room together. plus it goes with the blue and black in the kitchen, since most of the places we would live would have open kitchens. that is all the rage here.
