Ezri approves of the new walls around the kitchen stairwell. (Especially this shade of beige, "Pale Gingerbread." It coordinates perfectly with her fur. Mr Wrath is currently painting some of the new walls in a shade that I describe as "robin's egg blue with undertones of grey." Home Hardware calls it "Herbal Wrap." This makes no sense. That name evokes browns or greens, not blue. I would call this "Ezri's eye colour" or "Robin's Egg Grey" or....huh...actually, it's kind of hard to think up paint names. Who knew?! Now I feel badly for being churlish with Home Hardware's paint department. Maybe they should outsource the task to Laura. Her paint names are so evocative.)
I approve of the new light fixture. (Especially because Klaxon -- age 9 -- picked it out. It's meant to be an exterior fixture, but it's well suited to that wall. If it gets knocked by someone carrying something large or unwieldy up or down the stairs, the CFL bulb won't shatter and poison us with minute levels of mercury. Not that this was Klaxon's reason for choosing it. Instead he picked it because it matched the aesthetic of the Enterprise in the series reboot. In particular, the engine room which has an industrial feeling that is also reminiscent of a submarine. Or so he says.)
