We have our first family company this weekend. It is still a lot like camping out here but I pulled the guest room together so it is cute and comfy. I am going to do this place in black/white/taupe with a touch of that 50s blue to make the small spaces seem bigger and the blue to pick up the color of the lake/sky. But I put all the left over lime things in the guest room and it looks quite cute. Nice to have one room actually done. The main floor still has Scott mudding my office space which will be followed by sanding. After that we have to paint which we hadn't really planned on but is now necessary. The walls are gray, a cool gray. The brick wall is cream, gray and peachy brownish. The floor went from old, dirty looking, medium brown parquet to a light birch. So the floor and brick are warm and the gray walls are cool. So we are going to repaint the gray a taupe. So now to choose the color. I have 46 color chips on the wall which I am studying. Soon I will take down the ones that are too dark, too light, too yellow, too white. The remaining chips then will move to another wall and the process will continue until there is one chip left. Yes this is a long process with much contemplation. But when I pick a paint color I have never had to repaint a wall yet.
