Big House Plans!

So the ideas are still swirling around in my big old head, but big things are in the works!  We've been living here in this house for 5 years and when we bought this place I wasn't quite sure how I felt about style and color so we picked some things and it was OK.  A few years later with looking at blogs, furniture stores, and Pinterest (by the way - you can follow me on Pinterest by clicking HERE), I have a much better sense of what I like and what isn't quite me.  I look around and it just isn't doing it for me anymore.

So what to change?  The change is more than a few throw pillows or new accessories.  I've been doing THAT for 5 years and it always helps but doesn't feel quite right.  The BIG change is a full-on-whole-house color switcheroo.  Oh my.  Sounds daunting, right?  It is going to be a lot of work, but it's going to be worth it  :)

Our goal is to pick colors that flow well on the first floor (with the exception of the room that will be for Sarah - that's likely to be pink whether we like it or not!).  We need to find a living room color to "go" well with the curtains because I like them.  I have an idea already, so we'll do some test swatches in a few places to make sure it will work.  The dining room will be trickier because we have that lovely blue chandelier that I want to keep.  The kitchen wont' be done for a while, but it's going to be part of the plan.  The bathrooms also won't change because I love the colors we chose there.  Like I said, whole house switcheroo!

So I'm a little excited and a little nervous.

  1. Big plans! It's exciting and daunting, isn't it? :)

    She could still have pink in her room without the walls being pink. It would make the pink more special. And then maybe you could still pick a wall color that "flowed." (That #1 rule of decorating that you pick wall color last is always the hardest to adhere to.)
