paint: before and after

Our current house in Germany was in a sad and dark place when we happened to find it a few yearsĀ ago. Changing out the furniture is a sure bet to major transformation but paint really did bring the wow-effect in this case. The woodwork used to be all painted over with a dark stain and we opted for whites with warm grey tones.Image

The banister

This is the kind of banister which you find in so many houses around suburbia – they all look the same. Since we did not want to spend the money to change the design we opted for a new color combo.

We picked “Black” by Benjamin Moore and were very happy with the first testing.
