Oh la laPosted: September 19, 2010
We’ve got paint! Hubby finished prepping the sub-floor in the kitchen for our slate tile. But before we install it, we wanted to give the walls a fresh coat of paint.
First a little background… My in-laws came to visit over Labor Day weekend. Selection of paint colors was definitely on my list of things to discuss with my mother-in-law who’s an interior decorator (yes, I know I’m lucky). I really didn’t have a clue about what colors I wanted to use. Only that I knew I wanted COLOR.
In our first home, I used mostly neutrals which isn’t a bad way to go especially if resale is on your mind. But this is our house of “wants” and I really wanted color. Despite feeling a little intimidated, my mother-in-law sat with me on the floor of my master bedroom, flipped through some pictures I’d been collecting of different spaces I liked, and helped me identify the colors that would work in each space of our house. Seriously, within an hour, we had an idea of what each room should be painted.
