I really need to start planning my new home. Hopefully I can have a week overlap on homes so I can get in there and paint without all that furniture in the way. If that happens, I have to have my colors and everything picked out soon. I went to Home Depot yesterday (we have a gift card that I've been saving), and I picked out a million paint chips and took photos of ceiling fans. I was like a Home Depot tourist.
Anyway, I might flip flop in the next few weeks, but here are some ideas. I found fabrics that I loved and tried to use them as inspiration for rooms. They might turn into curtains or wall art or something, who knows?
First is the kitchen.
I'm in love with this fabric (top left). And the kitchen is most likely the only place in the house where Rob would allow purple. I'd love to have the walls in the light, celery-esque green, but I'm thinking that with the light cabinets and the light flooring, a darker wall might work better. Any thoughts?
And then there's my office.
All of my office furniture is black-brown. And I need to get one of those Expedit bookcases from IKEA that everyone seems to have. The carpet is light cream berber. I thought this fabric (top left) was so much fun! So I think what I'd like to do is split the wall, either by installing a chair rail, or just having a mock chair rail stripe. I haven't decided yet.
I have to figure something out for Rob's Nerdy Education Room, the bedroom, the bathrooms, and the hardest of them all, the living/dining room area. So many color options! And I'm not a fan of painting (probably because of my scrawny, weak arms), so once I do this, I want to make sure I don't have to do it again for a while!
