The milk chocolate room

Just don't lick the walls. I finally finished putting the pictures on the walls in the den. The only thing left to do before the room is officially "done" is to hang the curtains. Soon, I promise. I really like the wall color. It's called ours brun (brown bear), but it looks more like milk chocolate to me. So here are a few photos of how it all came out. To see what it looked like a little over a month ago, click here.

We replaced the old daybed with this cabinet. It's filled with dishes and other overflow kitchen items.

The fold-down desk and my computer station. This is where I process photos and write the blog.

A view back into the living/dining room. We removed the door for now. I like it gone.

    The milk chocolate is a very peaceful, cosy colour.

    1. The pine cabinet is one that we got back in 2003, when we first moved into the house. This is is third location in the house since we've lived here.

  4. I love the cosy and comfortable look to the room. A great space to spend time in and, if you don't mind me saying so, a vast improvement on what went before. :0)

  5. The room looks so nice now. The dubiousness of the wall cabinet had disappeared, overwhelmed by the new decoration, and what an inspired choice of colour. I rather like the standard lamp.

  11. I have been hating what I call the chocolat shit brown color that everyone (at least it seems like it) here in California uses on their walls. But your chocolate brown looks so pretty. It's not that dark depressing one. I also loved the beautiful yellow color on your kitchen walls. The cabinetry in your study is really nice.

  15. Très beau, mais le poste de travail avec l'ordinateur est très inconfortable, comme d'ailleurs chez beaucoup de gens. La surface de travail est très faible, il est difficile de poser des documents à coté du clavier, et surtout les jambes arrivent en butée sur les portes du placard. Quelque part, je crois que cela traduit le fait que l'ordinateur n'est pas encore pleinement considéré comme un élément essentiel de la maison, comme le serait un canapé, une table, un plan de travail de cuisine :-).

  17. A very inviting workspace! I've recently read many blogger's notes about removing doors to dens! How pleasant to just tilt one's head and have the view through to the salon! Loving that milk chocolate hue. Excellent choice. Now we can "see" you sitting at your bureau and composing your blogs!
