A WASPy Home
After a day in the freezing cold riding in a Morgan that needs to be fixed up, I am a little tired and still freezing cold. I will try to share some photos with you soon because I was so excited that I forgot to take the digital camera. However, we stopped at a drug store to buy a disposable camera, and MB claims he will have them developed very soon. I am afraid that you guys and gals will not be impressed, as this Morgan needs some work and a new paint job. The dear old doctor that owned the car did not take care of it I am afraid. Sorry MB, but I think you may have been burned.
Anyway, after church, the wife and I spent most of the day buying supplies to re-decorate my home office. I spent the day in casual clothing:
-Very old Levi jeans
-The Polo Fair Isle sweater that drew so much attention last week
-Polo Herringbone Tweed
-Polo light pink candy striped oxford cloth button-down
-Polo tassel loafers
Regardless of my tiresome demeanor, we had great success. Well, I did, because I am decorating the office with all the details I want. Her office is decorated the way she wants it, right? I already have a collection of oil paintings, and old book shelf, globe, leather sofa, etc. in the office space. So basically, I am painting the walls, changing curtains, and adding new carpet. I chose the following for the items:
Walls -- Ralph Lauren Antiqued Leather Paint - Chestnut
Carpet -- Tartan Plaid with the primary color being blue with green, red, and gold mixed in.
Curtains -- Gold Curtains
So, I am excited about beginning the renovations this week, and I will show you the finished product in a few weeks. I am doing the painting myself, but we have to wait for the carpet to come in for installation. In addition, I am attaching several pictures of our master bedroom that I recently re-decorated. I replaced a 150 year old family heirloom bed with something that sleeps a little better, and I added the rest of the finishing touches. Yes, we kept the heirloom bed, but we placed it in our 3rd guest bedroom that is never used. Anyway, let me know what you think about the bedroom!
