And FYI we decided on the bonus room upstairs and continuous hardwoods everywhere except the bedrooms.
Onto paint colors. Here's the deal. We are allowed to choose three paints colors total for our house. I kinda wish that would've said just one because lord knows I can't make a decision to save my life. So we're thinking of choosing a neutral beige-ish color for everywhere except our master bedroom and dining room. We figure down the road we can paint the bedrooms/bathroom/office easily enough. The master bedroom and dining room both have these beautiful
Ok, so you get the idea about the trey ceilings in the dining and master bedroom, right?! I guess we could paint it at some point but I'm not really thinking that's gonna be a fun task. Sooooo, that's why it's so important to choose a great (neutral) color for now!
Here's some colors that have been on my mind:
|Martha Stewart: Gray Squirrel|
|Behr: Mocha Accent|
I always thought I would have a red dining room but after watching a bazillion epidsodes of House Hunters it seems like red might be not as in as it used to be. I know, I know, we should choose what we like but it's so hard. I've seen lots of grey inspired rooms on Pinterest and I really love the look of black and white and grey with a POP of color. Who knows, I may revert back to red when it comes to decision time!
I'm kind of leaning towards "Mocha Accent" for our bedroom, it looks like a warmer grey color and I think it is a good mix of girly and masculine.
If we choose one of the more traditional grey (lighter) colors we may paint one of the bedrooms grey and use it for a nursery at some point.
Now for the rest of the house...
We're looking for a warm, neutral, beige/taupey color for all of the house. More brown undertones than pink or yellow. Does that make sense??
I'm kind of at a loss for this. I'm hoping that we can just choose the same paint color that the model home was done in because I'm overwhelmed about how to choose the perfect neutral beige color for our entire house!
Any thoughts? Any terrific paint colors that I should take a look at? I'd like to steer clear of blues, greens, and purples but other than that I'm game!
