Today we took the plunge and opened our first can of paint! One of the many things I'm enjoying about our house is that the interior has been painted in colors that are very neutral and liveable. The mainfloor is a soft beige, with the exception of the kitchen and family room, which are sage green. Green isn't my favorite color, but this is a shade I can live with.
However, the upstairs is all white. The previous owners just hadn't gotten around to decorating up there, which is fine with me, because it is soooo much fun starting with a clean palette. Kind of like having a brand new coloring book.
So, today Emily and I painted her bedroom. It was a good place to start, because she knows just what she wants. I was just eager to dip a paintbrush and get started painting something around here!
Here's what we started out with.
We painted two facing walls blue -- "Thoughtful Spot" blue to be exact. (ala Winney the Pooh. I just love that my 11 and a half year old girl is still okay with having a color named after the Pooh Bear.)
Then we added this yummy shade of pink. "Princess Power" pink to be exact.
We had some fun before getting down to business with the pink.
Oh, look! Freshly painted walls!
