It's time for the color of the living room to be changed. There, I said it. It's been 4 years now, and I'm tired of it.
Tired in a way that means it feels dark to me, and I want to be brave and paint it a light color like this..... (photo courtesy of restoration hardware) somewhere in the grey/very light tan/white family. Is there such a color?I see all these cute cottege-y looking living rooms with the white sofa's and the adorable pillows like these... (AGAIN Restoration Hardware) which I'm totally gonna try to make,
and I just want a change. However, I'm not gonna go with stark white walls. I'm a color person, I can't do just white.
So, help me out. This is what color the living room currently is:
It's a grey/dark brown kinda color. It's not made anymore (of course), and as you can see, in different light it looks different colors, but it's just a little too dark for my taste these days.
Should I paint it more like the color of my dining room?
Should I paint the trim white, which seems to be the fashion AGAIN these days, or should I leave it the fake looking oak? Decisions decisions.
I DO know that I will try to make one of these soon: (pottery barn)
and I will get some of these (pottery barn) (but I will get them MUCH cheaper) and maybe paint a number on each one and set them around the living room.
But PLEASE, for the love of pete, give me some ideas about the color of my living room. It's the cheapest way to change the look of your home, and I'm all about the cheap. I absolutely despise painting, but I do it out of love for my home.
