|The floor is hideous. I love the rug, but because of the heating grate in the floor, it can't be any bigger. Boo.|
|A portion of the solid wall. That. Is. Red. And yes, I do know that there is some baseboard and door molding missing.|
|Not just red. High gloss red.|
The hallway was painted blood red, and I kind of liked it, so it's still there. And coincidentally, I love red. There are small amounts of red in almost every room of my house, so it kind of fits. But back then the opposite wall from the bookshelves (the "picture gallery" wall - sorry, I know some people hate that, but I happen to like it) had a doorway into the former dining area of the kitchen, leaving not so much wall space. That doorway was closed off when we remodeled the kitchen, so now it is a solid blood red wall, and it seems sort of over powering, not to mention a tad dark for a "room" with no window. In my continuing attempt to neutralize, I'm thinking about a natural color grasscloth...what do you think?
Obviously there is some work that needs to be done here. We will be replacing that god-awful tile on the floor, which is why we don't have baseboards and some of the molding in there yet. Since there is hardwood in the entire house, we're thinking it probably has hardwood under it, but obviously it won't be in good shape, so that will be an undertaking we're kind of not ready for at this point. Another someday job. This house will keep us busy for years!
