Previous owners of this house adored the color green—green roof, green paint, green carpet.
They also were colorblind, I am convinced. Witness the kitchen: opalescent pink tiles with copper accents tiles, an orangey-red vinyl floor, beige walls and brown stove. Hear my optic nerve shriek.
So, as we learned in the last episode, there’s only so long that I can ignore a disturbing aesthetic situation. The kitchen needs much work, but it is not a priority. So I started doing things to make it less hateable. Things like painting the drop ceiling silver, the baseboards black and the walls grey. And installing chrome covers on the brown drop-ceiling grid. Now this may not be your idea of more soothing, but it is mine.
Then there was the floor.
Since I’m posting to my new old-house blog the contents of my old site, I can relieve your discomfort about that brown glob of a stove that the previous owners left. Feast your eyes on the beautiful beast I had moved from a house near Midway a few years back.
