The green ceiling lives

Home sweet home-in-the-future.

For those of you who didn’t get a good mental picture from my Microsoft Paint rendering πŸ™‚ this is a picture of the green-ceilinged dining room from the real estate website we used.Β  The light fixture is a springy little piece, with leaves and vines. The ceiling is, as established, green, and the walls are a lovely fresh light gray-blue with crisp white on the crown molding and baseboards.

The windows are new and all throughout the condo have deep windowsills, perfect for indoor plants (although there are window boxes outside the dining room and kitchen windows) or air-drying cloth diapers.

And this is the little oyster’s room, taken from the doorway. There’s a walk-in closet to the right and a huge holly bush outside the window. The walls are the same pale gray-blue as the dining room and living room.

Sleep tight, little oyster.

Speaking of the living room, it could hold the entire shoebox.

And the master bedroom comes complete with windows (seriously, this is novel), a big closet with shelves, and a whimsical little chandelier. If I can get the ok to paint it some other color–probably the warm gray or light green I want to use in the kitchen–we’ll be in business.

Blinded by the light.

The little oyster will sleep in his/her Pack N Play in here for a while after getting born, so the oyster’s room is available to guests. Just throwing that out there.

  1. I love the parquet floors! Our first house had them in the kitchen. By the way, pattern is *excellent* at hiding dirt. Texture, eh, not so much. The smoother it is, the easier it is to wipe clean. You can imagine how my wooden kitchen paneling and deeply-grouted floor tile, and cupboard doors with stepped profiles of trim, are looking forward to D’s “vacation” week of spring cleaning starting tomorrow. We have promised the small fry indoor use of rain boots. πŸ˜€

    • Haha, enjoy your spring cleaning! I’m sure the small fry will.

      I like to think that with one, instead of the three you have, keeping up with clean will be a little easier and hiding dirt will be less of a consideration. I guess we’ll find out, smooth walls and parquet floors considered, soon enough!

  2. I’m not the green ceiling enthusiast you are, but it appears to be a great place! Congrats on finding something you love in D.C., even if it took an extra couple months πŸ™‚
