My living room...

Click on pics to make bigger-
I am showing you my living room, because hopefully this week, the walls will be painted th emost beautiful shade of SU! Soft Sky!!! I took a reinker of Soft Sky, and painted some onto shimmer paper with paintbrush, then did another piece with several coats of reinker. Oh my, Im in love!! I haven thad blue in my house for over 20 yrs! I love deep red, and goldens, with a touch of aqua. I have a *Tuscan* kitchen. Well, soft Sky looks FAB with the red and yellow in kitchen, so Im sure it will flow perfectly!!! Cant wait to show you another pic when its done!!!
Middle pic is kitchen looking to TV room, which will be changed to the dining room. Bottom pic is my front courtyard.

How do you think Soft Sky will look in here??? ;)

First 2 pics are looking from the middle of my street looking south over Ladera Ranch.

This is the terrible view from my backyard. This is looking south.

This is the fire that is in Camp Pendleton right now. 15 miles away?

Not pretty.

Ash is raining onto everything. Nothing compared to the people who are all in the middle of all the fires everywhere-my heart goes out to them.
