faux fur and paint

two days after Christmas this faux fur blanket was delivered to my front door, isn't it lovely?
this is was my prize for winning the HGTV.ca holiday decorating contest
I feel so lucky , this faux fur blanket is stunning
it is a Gluckstein home blanket

 Moe loves it too , I think he's found his momma
 its about time to figure out the paint colors , so there is a lot of this going on, these were all wrong, too "colory"
 this is better , the middle is Revere pewter BM, and the others are Revere Pewter 50%, which is what I went with , its perfection, full strength it was too deep for the look I want
just one more wall to paint in the family room , then I can move onto wall art and a new slipcover old green stripe has got to go...






my plans are to print out this graphic and to create a tryptic , I love it . I will get large white frames and mattes , the hard part will be choosing which color...but it's just a plan so you never know what will happen....the other option is black and white photography of course

I have my eye on the striped slipcover at ikea but my husband doesn't love it , but I really think it will work...mostly everything is simple and neutral so maybe this will add a little happiness, I don't want to over do it with solids...

hope you're having a great start to the new year, I'm trying to get back on track with health and weight, its always my battle....sometimes I give up , but no more , I'm not gonna give up , that's my plan...

Looking forward to seeing your family room in Revere Pewter 50%. I just painted my kitchen and adjoining family room in Revere Pewter and absolutely love it. I'm so glad you mentioned the 50% idea because I was wondering what to paint the adjoining hallway.

I love Revere Pewter and have it in a lot of the main living areas of my home!

I love the color!! I can't wait to see your room all finished. Love the navy slip cover. I love that Emmie collection...the different Navy pieces they have for bedding that you can mix and match. The rug too. I just bought a new cover (vellinge beige) for my Ektorp chair, moving it from the basement to the living room on the main level. I love it!

I love those slip covers.. I have the older version on one chair in my living room, and it was just the touch of happy I needed :) I've had it now for over 6 years, and it still brings a smile to my face, I say go for it! He might like it better once you bring it home :) Your house is gorgeous.. I love seeing what you do! ~Bre

How did you get revere pewter at 50%? Did you ask them to do it at the paint store, and if so, what exactly did you say to them?

Roz,
I got the paint at home depot and just asked for it at 50% strength , I believe they just lowered all the tint amount by half, it didn't seem like it was the right color at first but it turned out to perfect.They seemed to be familiar with such request.hope that helps.

May I ask where you found these downloadable octopus graphics? I was wanting to do something like this after seeing it in Bill & Giuliana Rancic's nursery. I like the third graphic from the top. Can't wait to see how yours turns out! Thanks so much...Katie
