Back in 2004 I started writing about my adventures in fixing up houses on the internet. A lot of things have changed since then, with me, with my houses, and with the internet. These days I am basically a cranky old man trapped in a slightly less old woman’s body. The internet has changed and I am staunchly refusing to change with it. You won’t find any algorithms here, or feeds, or ads, or social media. Just good old-fashioned stories about a woman drinking beer and building shit, and living an unexpected life.

Then there is this post about neutral colored paint:
But the granddaddy of them all is Phoebe Howard and her top 10 paint colors:
I love her designs even though they aren’t necessarily my style. If that makes any sense. Remember you can always get something paint matched. Each paint store has a color deck for their competitors.
