After much deliberation we finally decided to paint the living room and hallways all white.
I had thought about doing a pale turquoise (maybe something like Megan's living room) on the top half of the walls, but it turns out the husband isn't really a fan of turquoise or any blue-green shade. Who knew? I've been painting things different shades of turquoise all over the house for years and my sweet husband never said a word!
Anyway, the other option was some sort of neutral-taupe, maybe a shade lighter and a bit grayer than in the kitchen, but that seemed so drab and un- "me." Don't get me wrong, I love how our kitchen turned out, but I don't want my whole house to be taupe.
In the end I decided to just try it, I mean, it's only paint right? So we started last weekend with the hallways. I am still not totally sure what I think...
I definitely think I need to get some more color up on those walls.
Possibly some bunting over the chalk board or some bright fabric in
embroidery hoops beside it?
