Love prefers twilight to daylight

Our story so far: As we progressed on the renovation of the old Methodist church into our home, Tyler hired a painter with experience and attention to detail. And a soft voice.

Low Talker began work in the master suite, specifically the laundry room, which we were—I was—eager to get operational. After he’d covered several walls with paint, instead of the little patches I’d created, I knew I’d chosen the right color of gray, a light gray inspired by Behr’s Evening White but mixed by Sherwin Williams. It made me happy just walking through the rooms any time of day. The trim, a white inspired by Behr’s Bleached Linen, popped against the gray. And the wainscoting, a tan inspired by Behr’s Arid Landscape, brought warmth to the scene.

That tin ceiling looks like new!

Low Talked also painted the tin inside the master bedroom tray ceiling with Arid Landscape, and it looked so good when he was done I decided not to distress it.
