Picking Out Paint Colors

Coordinating three rooms

Coordinating three rooms

We’re continuing our home revamp as we slowly edge closer to putting the house on the market.  This month’s task has been to come up with paint choices for our kitchen, our upstairs Master Bath, and the dining room.  I originally was going to just continue with the same paint that we used in the living room and hallway for our dining room since it really is all one space (as in a “L” shaped room) but, since our painter will be getting his paint from a different company than the paint maker we used originally, I decided to use a complementary color for the dining room.  That way, it will help define it as a separate space.

Our living room is actually pretty close to the brown color chip on the right so I think the pale greyish-green chosen for the dining room will go well with it.  It will also coordinate well with the light tan color chosen for our kitchen (see the chip on the left).  Of course, I couldn’t resist a name like “Kilim” since it evokes memories of our time in Morocco.

Finally, our upstairs bath has to coordinate with a celery-green guest bedroom and a master bedroom which is similar in color to the chestnut brown three shades up from the bottom of that paint strip on the left.  I WAS going to go with one shade darker of the celery-green but then I decided that you either love green or you hate it so I decided to go with the brown on the right.  That will go nicely with both the guest bedroom and the master bedroom and still be neutral.

First baby item finished

Finally, in knitting news, I finished the first item for our daughter’s baby.  It’s a squeezably soft garter-stitched baby blanket done in a log-cabin pattern.  Once I had finished the initial blanket, I decided that it was pretty small so I crocheted around the edges, using up the spare yarn and ended with a decorative final row of crochet.  I chose those colors because I think our daughter and son-in-law are planning to decorate their nursery in a woodland theme and I think this will complement it nicely.  It will also do fine for either a boy or girl.
