One of my favorite spots in the new house is the big comfy chair with ottoman in my knitting room, which overlooks the entryway and dining room…I love to sit and work on my knitting, consider paint colors for the house, read books (about to start Gone Girl, despite all of the apparent hulabaloo about the ending), sketch, or drink Manhattans while I spend hours browsing pinning items to my Pinterest boards. Sometimes I’ll move to the dining room when I want to blog, but will almost always end up back in the chair. The blue quilt and bear-claw pillow were made by my mother-in-law as a wedding gift. It’s my cozy little perch. How about you? Do you have a favorite spot in the house?

Lately, I’ve been obsessing over the perfect shade of blue-gray-green for the new knitting room and dining room. Farrow & Ball has some of the prettiest shades, so I ordered four sample pots. Above is the Light Blue, which looks a little green on the chip, but in the room appears a soft, springy blue.
Finally, the Green Blue – this is the most saturated of the four colors – and while I think it may be too strong for the walls, it may be a good color for an old wooden coffee table that needs a little refreshing.
