After some back and forth over color Careful Painting recently repainted this living area on 13th Street NW in Faribault. The grays selected looked good upstairs but washed out on the main floor. The many large windows in the living spaces required that our client find a deeper gray to get the look she desired. We looked at the Affinity palette but finally settled on the warmer, “organic” Eagle Rock, Benjamin Moore 1469, in the Aura matte finish. The Eagle has landed!
Jolene and I are excited about a new wallcovering material which we installed in the new Occupational Clinic at 710 South Division Street in Northfield. Stoneybrook paper comes in many colors and is simple for an experienced paperhanger to install. I have been hanging wallpaper since about 1989.
Jolene was able to find a color to go with the new carpet. While it does cost a little more than other wallpapers, this “torn” paper effect has real depth, will cover problem walls, and is very easy to repair. No more seams to deal with, either.
Because it is hand made to order, Stoneybrook paper must be ordered about a month in advance of installation. Careful Painting sells and installs Stoneybrook papers in the Northfield, Rochester and Mankato areas.
As we near the end of summer, Mark and his Careful Painting crew are busy scraping Renee Huckle’s Northfield home, preparing it for a new, lighter paint. The home will feature more contrast, with dark brown soffits and a deep red front door, changes that will complement the neighboring Liberty Park homes.
