I love my new apartmentâ€”–a top-floor Brooklyn brownstone fixer-upper. Itâ€™s got lots of character (as you can see above), plenty of space (practically palatial by New York standards) and is need of some serious TLC (see the crack in the wall on the next page). With my fiancÃ© on an extended business trip in India, I (well, actually Erica P. and I) am sorting through the usual choices: flat or eggshell? Traditional or modern? And then we thought, who better to weigh in on paint colors and furniture picks than design-savvy Shelterrific readers? Our (and your) first decision: What shade to paint the accent walls in the living room and the bedroom. We were thinking of going with Benjamin Mooreâ€™s â€œolive mossâ€ (see next page!) as one option. Any other suggestions? â€” Ashley P. and Erica P.
