We have re-thought our color scheme for downstairs - again. One thing we have learned is that you NEVER buy paint until the very end.
(Does anyone want to buy two huge buckets of pale blue paint?)
Because our plan for the layout of the downstairs has changed slightly and because the cabinets we had priced and planned for last winter are no longer available, we have had to re-think our whole plan for the downstairs. I'll tell all in another post once I've got caught up with the mess in this house (it is truly amazing how much volume the cabinets in the Ft.Jackson house were hiding!) but in the meantime - here is a short overview of our color scheme:
Living Room walls - that dusty pink and/or the chocolate brown - tile work with will be done in that faux aged stone tile with a few decorative tiles thrown in.
Cabinetry and Built-ins in both rooms - pale mustard yellow with that dark formica flecked with gold and teal for the counter tops.
Ceilings - the paler yellow
Paprika Curtains in the LR, teal throw pillows and other accents, something lightweight and cream or kitchen curtains.
We hope to have at least some of it done before Christmas!
O.K. Time for some real life work. (The color chips look so much better in real life - I've played with the color balance but digital cameras just don't manage blues against reds very well.)
