When in Doubt, Call in the Experts

I’ve spent the past few months memorizing the entire Benjamin Moore paint line, looking for a trim color for the house.  You’d think it’d be easy, right? Wrong. I can’t just appease the neighbors, paint the thing beige, and call it a done deal. Why? Because #1 It’s Boring and #2 It’s Not Authentic to 1956.

I admit it, the color selection defeated me. I called in the Big Dogs of Design, James Linville and Lina Husodo of Studio H+L, two very cool architects whom Bill and I befriended/worked with when we lived in Austin. They’re gonna help us take our house back to what it used to be, but better.

Hopefully we’ll get to see them soon. Maybe we’ll get lucky and see Bear and Della (their dogs, whom we adored as much as the design process) too.

    Haha! I know exactly what your mean. We’re refinishing our home, not a 1950’s home, but we were stuck on paint and all the subtle differences as well.

    So we finally decided to call Fortune Restoration, a Premier Painting company located in Chicago…problem solved!
