I've decided to bite the bullet and have someone come over and help me figure out what to do about the walls in this place. When we bought our house, it was nice in that the whole thing is very neutral in color. Meaning beige. And there's not a thing wrong with beige, except that I thrive on color.
So, it wasn't long before I was bringing home paint samples and taping them to the walls, getting out some cans of paint and swishing a bit of color here and there to see how it plays out in the light. And, now, I'm stuck. I'm not sure if it's the light in this house or if its the fact that the rooms don't really end, they just lead on into the next one, but I'm having a heck of a time figuring out what colors to do and where they should go.
My friend Claudia is one of those people who is just a wealth of information. From dog training to interest rates to understanding the Trinity, this woman has an insight into everything. So I called her, and sure enough she has a source who will come over to my house, spend two or three hours and help me map out a plan. For a very reasonable fee, I might add. It's worth the cost of two or three gallons of paint if it will save me the torment and gnashing of teeth in trying to come up with a plan on my own.
So Friday, Kris of 'Kris & Kris Designs' is coming over. In the meantime, I'm getting out all of my magazine clippings that I've been saving because she said it would help her come up with ideas. And I'm dragging the pictures up from the basement that I love, but don't know where to hang them. And I'm prepping Hubs, because once Kris and I come up with a plan, whoa, boy, here I go off to Home Depot for some more paint!
