Happy Friday Ya’ll!!
Our home is our happy place…our sanctuary. It should reflect our style and be a place of refuge…. a positive environment. It’s not a good feeling to look around and not be pleased by what you see (at least for me). We spend most of our time in our homes, so why not make it pleasing to the eye.
As I’ve mentioned before, I do enjoy a little DIY here and there along with decorating. I’m by no means an expert but I like being creative. We’ve only been in our new home for four weeks and I have quite a few projects in the pipeline.
We’ve been consumed with paint colors lately. My home will be painted next week. We are the second owners in the home, and we are preparing to make some changes. It’s very important that we create the right ambience for my family.
We are all unique so what pleases me may not please someone else and that is perfectly okay.
Paint color is one of the simplest ways to change the look and feel of a home. Color influences our mood, and with five of us in the home that is important. The last thing I want to deal with is cranked out people messing up my vibe. LOL
These are the colors we are surrounded by now:
Bathroom inside of my daughter’s room
Main floor powder room – mirror was removed
Living/Dining Room Combo
As you can see, we have a lot of brown on our walls. It makes me crazy or maybe it just accentuates my crazy. All jokes aside, it is not working for us.
Originally my hubby and I thought we could tackle the paint jobs on our own but not so. It’s just too much and we don’t have the time or the patience. I want to get my house together before the school year begins. We have two weeks to go.
We took the easy way out and hired a painter. Although painting costs are not so easy on the pocketbook. I’m looking forward to seeing the finished product.
We like warm colors. You’ll have to stop by the blog again for a visit to see the final results.
We did paint two bedrooms pictured below before we threw in the towel.
Boys Room. My son said he is done with blue. This is Baked Sconce by Valspar Reserve
Teen Girls Room. My apologies but I cannot find the before photo. The before color is a mustard yellow, with the circular swirl faux look. That’s the best way I know how to describe it. She opted for a light gray that has hints of blue. It’s called Gravity by Valspar Reserve. She has selected lavender and turquoise for accent colors.
Thanks for stopping by.
Does paint color matter to you? Does it affect your mood?
Have a blessed weekend!
Peace and Blessings,
