What a gorgeous Autumn day we have before us! The sky is blue, the sun is shining brightly and the leaves are turning very quickly! All of the orange, yellow and red outside of my windows is really putting me in a decorating mood. I want to see more Autumn decorating inspiration, how about YOU? My laptop was giving me a very hard time yesterday, so I was not able to show you these images.
I have no idea where I found those, if they are yours please forgive me. They are great, though, aren't they.
For more inspiration, I found that Cottage Instincts had a blog party yesterday and there were many people weighing in with some lovely Autumn decor.
Now I have a question for you Interior Designers out there.
The interior of our church needs repainting. Here's what we have to work with. The floor is a blue/grey carpeting. The window toppers are fairly new and they are a maroon. The chairs on the platform are also new and they are a maroon with a bit of beige and gold in them. The pads on the pews are red. The upper part of the walls in this room is white and will remain white. The lower part is old wood paneling with a trim above it and the windows are wood trim.
One idea that was submitted was to paint the lower part (which is all we will be painting) an almond white. Another idea was to paint it a beige. I was wondering if we should try to match it to the carpet and go with a very, very light shade of blue/grey. I thought that would update it more than anything else. But what should the trim around the windows be and how about the trim right above the paneling. Any opinions are welcome.
I hope you are enjoying a beautiful, sunny day!
