New look in the living room

Late sommerdager

Yesterday I got an urgent need of painting something, and I ended up painting two of the walls in our living room with “Late sommerdager” from Fargerike. I have to say that I thought the color I had chosen would end up a bit different, and I got quite a shocked when I came down this morning (after finishing up last night). It´s a super fresh color, but personally I would prefer it more toned down and maybe with a little more blue in it. I guess I have to find the energy to do the job all over again, after finding a new color… Any suggestions?

    Hei Nina!

    Så fresht med vårlig farge på veggene :-D
    Jeg synes Fargerike sin Valmuesøster er nydelig også.
    Ha en fin dag Nina:-)

    Klem Therese

    I don’t know how it looks up close but it’s gorgeous through the photos! Maybe you’ll get used to it in the end!
    And I have to say, it was a bit unexpected but a great surprise to find a bit of color in your place Nina! Really really pretty!
    Hugs from Crete! xoxo

    My suggestion would be… ehrm… WHITE!

    I like the color, it’s pretty close to the colour in which I have painted one wall in my sleeping room, but I totally LOVED your serene black-and-white with grey and some green plants and woods.

    I bought the latest German “Couch-Magazine” in which you were featured, and I liked the article and the pictures a lot. And I was like “HA, I knew her blog before!” ;-)

    Thanks for doing what you do, please keep going on!

    Regards,
    Evelyn

      Hehe, it´s nice with white. But I´m in need of a change. Hopefully you like the new color I have painted in my living room – it looks much better than this one.
      I´m glad to hear that you like the article in Couch-Magazine. I actually got it in my mail today. It turned out really well I think.

      Wish you a nice weekend!

    I just can’t stop looking and admiring :) I really love the contrast of this new wall colour with black, white and wood. And I’m totally in love with the second photo!

    Jeg er enig med deg, jeg ville nok også hatt en litt mer nedtonet farge. Vi skal male kjøkkenet vårt nå, og jeg heller mot Jade fra Jotun. Den ser nydelig ut. Den er nok litt mer blå på den blågrønne skalaen også. Er spent på hva du velger!

      Thank you! I have actually painted over it again, as I thought it was to bright. The new color is much better :)

    it takes some getting used to, but there’s still something really attractive to that colour – love how it looks in contrasts to all the grey and black!
    need to ask you, that ‘egg’ picture on your wall – where is that from? so lovely!

      Well, I have already painted a new color on my walls. It looks much better now :)
      The Diamond print is from Arte Limited. I love it!

    Hi Nina, I also love it in the second photo with your wishbone chairs, it looks really nice with the pale wood which add some warmth. Can I ask is that the Ikea Basnas rug in your living room? How do you find it? Is it nice and thick or thin? Does it shed? I’m contemplating getting it but not 100% sure yet. Thanks, Maddie!

    Kjenn litt på den! Det kan hende den “kommer til deg”. Jeg malte er rom i lys isturkis en gang, og ble helt sjokkert først da den hadde tørket, men ble så inderlig glad i den etterhvert. Noen ganger er farger en tilvenningssak :)

      I agree. I like the latest one much for. At least for this room and my style.

    Hej Nina – får jag fråga vad det är för en tapet vid trappan? Just en sådan jag letar efter!
    Och – jag håller med dig, den andra gröna tonen var bättre, väldigt snyggt.
