The new house

We were supposed to close yesterday, but the bank we're purchasing from didn't complete their paperwork. We're waiting to hear back today from them. That's the joy of getting a deal on a foreclosure. In the mean time Mr. Right and I picked out our paint colors. As the decorator, I chose what color family we would be using, but allowed him to help when it came to tone and shade. I'm very pleased with the result and can't wait to get it on the wall!!

For the kitchen/breakfast nook/living room/dining room area/hallway, we're going with khaki. We'll have one red accent wall in the kitchen to liven it up a bit.

I'm letting Mr. Right choose the color for the two guest bedrooms. He'll probably either go with khaki in there as well or just opt to put a fresh coat of white up. I would be okay with not painting in those rooms, but they are scuffed up pretty bad so they really need it.

In the bedroom I went for a blue/green color. We've registered for a charcoal bedspread, so I think the rich color will go great and keep the charcoal from looking too drab. The lightening decides if its more blue or green.

  1. First of all, I love the khaki and red - gorgeous!

    I think the blue is an awesome choice too! I read somewhere in Southern Living back in the Dark Ages that to have a successful gust room you should paint it a shade of pale blue because it's so relaxing. We did that in our guest room and then turned it into the nursery when I got pregnant. Even though we had a little girl we left the walls pale blue because it was so peaceful in there.


what up yo?
