I’ve been in my new house now about six weeks. And I’ll admit, I’m already getting a wee bit tired of the ol’ builder’s beige walls. They are kind of pink, in some light. Not my favorite. Don’t get me wrong! I’m CONTENT! I’m not doing any painting in the near future.
But I would love a little warmer, more homey feel. This might call for a little creative fabric and fool the eye tricks to warm it all up. That I will do, I need to make it feel like ME. I just don’t want to get on scaffolding to paint our walls and ceilings.
Here is one corner of our living room (before we moved in, we don’t even have all of our furniture here yet from our old house so no use taking any “after” pictures).
I do love all the windows, but I am still thinking about what kind of window treatments I could do! Tricky, non? I love a good challenge. And I think I just might have a solution I can live with. We’ll see!
I really like rooms that are more creamy yellowy, but now I have brownie-pink. And, you know, I am going to embrace it. Right now I am spending my time getting to know the new people we are meeting up here in our new city (instead of being too busy trying to get all fancy with my repainting just yet).
I’ve shown you the room below before, I love how creamy and pretty it looks.
As I mentioned awhile back, we chose a new house this time so we didn’t have to fix up our house right away. So even though I seem to be a master of finding reasons to have to make some changes (it is just how I am, I can’t help it!), I really am trying to focus more on getting to know our community and helping the new church to get off the ground.
We’ve had several people over for dinner already, hosted a dessert and plan to have people over more often and worry about big projects “someday.” I’m enjoying my life here, in spite of my builder beige walls. Who knew? I might go crazy one of these days though and re-do a whole room in a day.
For any one who has been at The Inspired Room for awhile (anyone?), like for a year, do you remember magazine cover-itis? It was one of my very first blog posts where I revealed I am a recovering addict. I still suffer from it sometimes (ha, clearly) but I think I am SO MUCH better than I ever was before!
Oh, just one last thing. Want to know a pretty yellow paint color? Restrained Gold by Sherwin Williams. It is a pretty yellow, but not overwhelming. In case you are painting something. I’m not, of course.
I must be getting spring fever. Are you all ready for some Spring Fluffing? I am. Let’s do our Spring Nesting party a little early this year, shall we? When shall we celebrate spring? As much as I was looking forward to our Fall Nesting party last fall (oh how I looked forward to being all cozy!!), I’m now ready for some SUNSHINE. Are you?
