Sunday Snapshot: An Indoor Winter Scene

When it's cold outside, our cats can often be found napping on radiators.  Dorothy is the only one who will sleep on a naked radiator, like you see below.  I usually keep a small oriental rug on each of the radiators, to make their 'sauna' more comfortable.  

Dorothy was perfectly comfortable ... I don't see how.  I guess it's a cat thing.


Off topic:  This is the radiator in the living room, the room where we removed the plaster ceiling over Christmas.  The paint samples show my attempts to choose a paint color.  The final choice (as of now) is the small darker one ... Greyhound, by Benjamin Moore.  Bluish, greenish grey, and I think it's perfect!

  2. Beautiful choice of paint which belongs to the house I think. Not so comfortable on that ´naked´ radiator, but I suppose she loves the warmth if it´s not too hot, but may be her fur and skin are heat resistant.

    1. I think that Dorothy's thick fur provides a little bit of insulation against the direct heat of the radiator ... at least I hope it does. Some days when she does this, I almost expect her to have grill marks (like one a good steak) :)

  3. Love the photo of Dorothy. Cats can sleep in just about any position it seems. She's definitely got a nice 'warm' spot.

    Love your color choice for the living room.

    Have a great week ~ FlowerLady

    1. When we first bought this house, I knew that the cats would love having radiators. I was right.

      I'm very excited to have made the living room paint choice, though application of said paint is still months away. That's okay ... it's good to have decisions in place as the project progresses.

  4. Dorothy looks nice and warm. I love Benjamin Moore paints! It's like painting with silk.

    1. When Dorothy gets all relaxed like that on the radiator, it looks as if she's melted and oozed between the sections. Weird cat. (I join you in your love of Benj Moore paint. Most of our house is painted with them, and I love my local BM supplier. Local store with great service.)

    1. The middle gray-ish color is 'Silver Sage' from Restoration Hardware. It's the same color as is in our family room and our master bedroom. I first thought that I would paint the two front rooms the same color, for continuity. I abandoned this idea recently because the light in the two rooms is so different. The living room windows face north and east, and it's a much darker, cozier room ... which I now think needs a deeper color on the walls. I had a sample can of 'Greyhound' in the cupboard (bought it because I ran across the name in my fan deck ... had to do it!) Medium-tone, chameleon bluish-greenish-grey is totally perfect in there. You'll see.

  6. Oh, sweet Dorothy.
    Such a peaceful image.

    Looking at your colors, I love them all!
    I can never choose when it comes to painting the rooms of my house.
    Maybe that's why everything is White.
    :D

    1. Dorothy is a weird cat. Seems that we like 'em best that way.

      Sounds weird to say it out loud, but it's almost as if I can see the colors before I choose them. All I have to do after that is make the choice look like the image in my head ... and I don't stress over it.
