Outside, our house is white with black trim. Inside, our house is pretty much the same. Our floor is really dark brown, nearly every wall is a different shade of off-white, and the one color we had on the walls was yellow: a pale yellow in the master bedroom, a strong mustard in the dining room (that, coincidentally, worked perfectly with a rug I had and the upholstery on our dining room chairs), and a yellowish cream in the powder room downstairs.
All this off-white and brown has been driving me insane.
I had grand visions of painting (at least some of) the rooms myself, but when we found out our neighbor Brian is a professional painter, Dave said SIGN US UP! So we did. We tested swatches today (Tuesday), and we should have three rooms painted by the end of day Thursday. My husband is a smart, smart man.
Here’s what we have lined up so far:
Master bedroom: Some sort of tan to match the marble (limestone? I should know this) in the fireplace and in the rug
Nursery: Pale bluish gray to go with our navy and hot pink color scheme (which coordinates with Michael Miller’s Out to Sea fabric in the Deep Sea Jewel colors on the right, below).
I’ll post photos and update the links as we go.
