when we moved in, the house was swathed in some pretty questionable colors- orangey-beige terra cotta in the entry and dining room, dark red in the living room and bright blue in the kitchen. keep in mind all these areas flow together! i decided to go with a bright peacocky teal in the living room, which is north facing, hence there's not a lot of natural light. instead i ended up with a dark forest green.
nat and i lived with it for a year, hating it all the while. now that spring is here we're newly motivated to work on our space. a few weeks ago nat broke out his paints and started mixing colors to come up with the perfect light bright aqua to re-paint the living room in.
on the left you can see the original dark green, the right side is our new color-
above you can also see the dining room is a light spring green, no more terra cotta! now we just have to paint the kitchen.
so much better!
