We are excited to have a fresh look in our living room! The funny thing is, it is not even close to our original plan! I am currently in love with the whole yellow/gray combo (hence the blog colors) and so it was our intention to do 3 walls of gray, one of yellow. So we finished the 3 walls - pewter gray - that sounds pretty gray, right? Nope, the final look was definitely blue. Hmmmm....what to do? Well, we weren't going to be super picky, because, well, we probably won't be in this house forever, and it turns out, we really liked the color! The gray/blue ended up being really warm & cozy. But blue & yellow were certainly not the scheme we wanted! So Andrew pushed for a beige color and we decided to go for it. Thankfully, we were able to return the unopened yellow!
So, from this.......................
Dilemma #2: We have this space behind the TV that is actually a chimney and so we can't put a picture there or anything. We toyed with the idea of word art or something, but then I had the really brilliant (haha!) idea of doing a paint design of some kind. And the stripes were born.
So, then we decided to do the opposite color stripe on the opposing wall to tie them together. And we really love how it turned out! It's give the room a little more interest!
We had planned to put a large picture on this wall, but it seems ok without it, any thoughts?
For Stephanie, :) our storage space for G's toys which doesn't make it feel quite so much like a kid's playroom after he goes to bed!
So, for a mere $16 in paint, we have a space that feels a little more like home. Still have the [lovely] blue carpet, but, we have the worst behind us, so we're very thankful!
