For someone who loves change, like going a different way every time he gets in the car, my dear hubby hates for the furniture to be changed around. Now, I on the other hand loathe going a different way. When I worked I figured out the fastest way to and from the office. Never changed my route. Why? It was the fastest route...why go a slower way? However, I love, absolutely LOVE to rearrange my furniture. I've always done it myself when DH was out of the house and then he would come home surprised. :D
Well, I've talked him into changing our downstairs family room (the room where I posted pics of my Christmas tree). I've had to talk him into helping me because I have 5 major bookcases that have to be moved in this adventure. Not only that, but we have decided to paint too. He was all for the painting until I told him I wanted to do a wall or two in a really bold color and the rest of the walls in a very light color. Green is my predominate color in my furniture, however, I've accented a lot with red...a burgandy shade. He was adjusting to the idea of a darker green wall but when he came home this morning my friend and neighbor, Judy, was still here talking with me about what I wanted to do. I'd moved from the green idea to the red. Poor hubby. I thought he was going to faint dead on the spot! But, he rallied and did not faint away.
Later this afternoon Judy had been at the paint store for a room she is doing and picked out some color cards for me to view. She brought them by and dropped them off. I've just about decided....I'm not fully sure yet on the pale green....yes, I'm doing a pale green, almost white, but I want to look at some other choices other than what I have. The pic I've included isn't very bright but at least you may have somewhat of an idea, if you use your imagination. Lol!
For me, this is really 'stepping' out there. I love my pastels but I look in the decorating books or go to someone's home who has it all together color wise (like Judy) ;D and I think I would love to have a room like they have. But, then I chicken out. Not this time. I'm going to bravely go where I've never been before....bright, bold and beautiful!!!!
