Color plays such an important part in our lives and I have struggled with choosing a new color for my kitchen which connects to the family room since we purchased this house 6 years ago. I have never been a green person, my preference is white or a soft beige. One of the first things I was going to do was re-paint these two rooms, and here I am still surrounded by green.
I had a real attitude about this house since the time we purchased it. Our last home was a true adventure for me, the home was built in 1860 a Federal style, with windows that were all pre-civil war blown glass. The home was in complete shambles but I saw it as a decorating adventure. I completely restored the entire home from cellar to attic which was a huge under taking, it was like living in HGTV everyday for 2 years. Just as I finish the home and was about to really enjoy it my husband was transferred. Agony, I had put so much of myself into this home, it was like leaving a child behind.
This home was brand new, color selections were done by the builder and I was completely detached. I merely unpacked all the boxes hung the pictures and that was about it. Now after all this time I am ready to tackle the green actually it is more an olive green.
I would love to hear your thoughts about color selection. The cupboards are cherry, granite counter tops in a dark almost black green, brick paver flooring. Dark, Dark, Dark. So what do you think? I totally forgot to mention in my last post, I will be picking the winner of the burlap Paris slip on August 4th, so there is still time to leave a post.
I hope all of you have a wonderful weekend.
