So we found ourselves looking at paint samples. Joshua & I have incredibly different taste. I think you could have picked ANYTHING in the store and said, "Do you like this?" and I would have said no and he would have said yes. Or vice versa. Luckily, we usually agree on colors!
Of course these colors will look different on the walls than they do on the computer screen! For our basic color that will be on most of our walls, we're going with a very light neutral. A nice non-baby yellow in the kitchen. Red in the dining room and main level bathroom. Actually, we're planning to do wainscoting in the dining room, so really only the top half of the room will be red.
Yay! Don't they look great together? So we'll keep Bitsy #2's room the neutral & spice it up with fabric wall hangings... Yup. I never got to that project. I intend to now! :) We'll do a dusty rose pink in Bitsy #1's room--she is actually requesting purple, blue, and pink stripes. Yikes! The basement has bead board that we'll paint white and put this aqua on top. We're going to make the main room in the basement my office/play room. It's big enough that we shouldn't have any trouble with that!
And then for the master... we have green bedding and purple bathroom items, so we thought maybe we'd swap those colors. Put green in the bathroom & purple in our bedroom. The ceiling has a lot of character, so we thought we'd just paint one or two walls a dark purple in our room so that the white ceiling really stands out & you can see the architectural lines. So we're deciding still on the shades...
Huge project ahead of us!! Wish us luck. ;)
