Happy 4th! Luke, Bear, and I are enjoying a low-key day in our air conditioning since the temp is currently 99 degrees. Since I have some extra time today, I thought I’d unveil our newly painted living room.
Unlike previous times I’ve picked out paint colors (like mango, fluorescent banana) I really did my homework this time since we’re hoping to live with these colors for a while. I spent more than a few hours adding ideas to my living room and home boards on Pinterest, perusing pictures on Houzz, and catching up the decorating blogs I follow like Little Green Notebook. When I had narrowed down a few options, I used Benjamin Moore’s ‘paint your room online‘ tool which led me to switch the rooms for the colors I’d picked out the night before we painted. I’d originally planned to paint the dining room this dark gray/green color (Benjamin Moore’s Duxbury Gray) but I love it in the living room and am really happy with the end results. I’ll post pictures of the dining room another day. And thank you to my in-laws for spending their day off (and then some!) helping me paint and bringing my standards up to their level of perfection.
