This weekend was spent getting settled into the new house. We've been fishing cloths out of boxes for a few weeks now, being all unpacked has made the space feel like home. Moving can be a logistical nightmare the do list keeps growing, making the check list seem small. I am a list girl. I like to see things checked off. No one is surprised.
Since we moved, we've been sleeping in a guest room while we got things painted and waited on the arrival of our new bed. I had been collecting little pieces here and there in preparation for our move.
To clarify, when I say we got things painted, I mean our incredibly generous friends who came in the weekend we closed and said, We're here to work now give me a job. No amount of food and booze that's how you say thank you in the South, made us feel we could thank them enough. I could cry when I think about how much work they took off of our plate. We are incredibly fortunate and blessed with rich friendships. Plus, they tolerated my evaluation of every color in the wheel while choosing a living room color. It's hard to find people who don't mind putting up with your BS.
Painting our space made the house feel like ours. It got us to that blank canvas space so that we could make this house our home. Here are the colors I selected:
Obviously colors look much different once they're on the walls. However, I have to finish covering the Earth in Damask prints before I can share pictures. Pfff Chevron whatever.
Here's my dilemma, I have two spare rooms that still need painting. I want to pick a neutral color that will work in both rooms. Nothing too dark. If it were only up to me, I'd paint the world Antique White and move on with my day. Boring Betty says hey!
What are your favorite neutral colors?
