And putting the pieces together. On Wednesday they lifted the grill work up and installed it over the long windows. This was all done by hand and would never ever have been approved by OSHA.
Ned, Pancho and the grout mixer are trying to decide if the color is right.
But finally the whole 2nd floor is grouted. Now we can get on to the fun stuff. Raphael, the painter came and mixed color samples.
My friends Gary and Joseph came over to help me evaluate the colors. Gary is watching Raphael fan the sample so we can evaluate the color. I think the lighter sage green that you see will be on the walls in the studio.
I'll use the red on the back wall as you can see in this image and put the gray-green on the sides of the stairwell. The stairs will have saltillo tile on the treads and the terracotta and white patterned tile that you see in the opening image on the risers. Yes, I know this is a strong color scheme, but I think it will be smashing. Oh, and just in case you think these colors are strong....I'll be using the red in the bathroom too. I struggled so with colors in our Houston house but here....right or wrong....I feel very confident of this choice.
Yeap, that is Ned going up the stairs. Isn't this going to be an interesting architectural feature of the new addition?
