oh yeah, there’s light here

good light in the living room

I talked to the big empty room and she’s positively BLUSHING at all of your compliments on how beautiful her light is. Honestly, I don’t know what we’re gonna do for her ego. Maybe we’ll just strip her of all furniture or useful purpose… oh, wait.

This room was originally the ‘Room’s boudoir, but lack of an air conditioner solution (it has those long tall crank windows) renders it pretty uncomfortable for four seasons boudoir-ing. So shortly after our housewarming party a little room re-arranging took place and bam, now we’ve got a big empty space perfect for drink photo shoots, cat photos, and dead plant photos. Eventually we will put office-y things here and some day when I achieve my dream of working from home it will be awesome. This room is also useful for yoga moves and storing empty plant pots.

I feel the need to share that these walls are pretty much the perfect shade of grey/gray for photographing. Benjamin Moore sweet innocence. When this shade first came home it was a bit lavender/blue for my taste, I love a super dry gray like Benjamin Moore’s gray owl. But boy does it look good in photos, it makes everything around it look really soft and grounded.

All credit for wall color and Sophie’s “custom” cat bed goes to the ‘Rooms, all credit for sunlight goes to Mutha’ Nature herself, and photographing those things goes to me and the Olympus E-PM1, the camera for people who don’t know anything about cameras.

If you want to solve the A/C problem, I imagine that you can hack together a solution with a portable (freestanding) A/C and a crafty window cover. post a photo of the window to reddit.com/r/diy or the like and the suggestions will roll in.

Ask the internet is always full of solutions. Someday maybe, but then where will I take pictures of all of my dead plants?
