Last week Mark and I painted our living room red. This photo does not really show the effect very well. However, I am thrilled with the results. I walk in the room every morning and I just admire the sunlight shining through the windows on the rich red walls. The actual process of painting the walls took longer than we planned and gently stretched our matrimonial bond, but we have both just walked in the living room at different times over the past week and have said, “I really love this room.” Who knew painting a room could raise one’s spirits so!
