In my attempts to make this blog somewhat of a resource for you guys and not just documenting the excruciatingly slow progress that we are making, I want to share with you some of what I learn in the process.

I had two groups of colors, the more muted greens from the Ben Moore Historical Collection and more vibrant greens from their regular Color Preview Collection. I was torn between feeling that I should use a muted color since the pattern itself was so bold and my usual love of more saturated greens from the first half of the twentieth century.
