I FINALLY had my house painted last week. The kitchen, living room, and dining room were all done. Now, I have what you call an "open concept" kind of downstairs so all the rooms were one color. I believe it was "Champagne Bubbles" from Sherwin Williams. Standard stuff.
Nice, but after 12 years I decided I needed some color in my life and chose THREE different colors.
I know. I'm living on the edge.
In the living room I went GREEN. Neutral, but it's a color. I LOVE how it turned out. Very warm and relaxing.
For the kitchen, I went a blue/green. I have little blue and aqua specks in my granite so I wanted to play that up. Plus I wanted to add a little warmth there because I have so much sunlight. It looks very beachy and pretty now.
For the dining room, I wanted a rose color but am changing it to a more neutral beige. Long story...
Here's how it turned out:
The living room...
|"BEFORE" (I was moving stuff out of the room when I decided to take a picture)|
|"AFTER" I chose "Weeping Willow" from Olympic|
Now for my kitchen...
|"AFTER" with "Misty Surf" by Olympic|
I wanted a rose brown but ended up with something a little too pink. So when I walk in my house and see blue from the kitchen and pink from the dining room, I feel as if I'm in a nursery. Not good. We're hoping to correct that this week...
Once that's done, I just need new curtains in the kitchen and dining room and I want to redo the fireplace in my living room.
(See the blue tile in the living room above picture? Yeah. That's got to go)
I'm slowly getting this done. Then I'm going to work on my office next!! That should be fun!
Do you have a lot of wall colors? What color is your favorite room in your house?
