>Remodeling the old homestead: choosing the colors


We had a big pile of color choices. How big was it? Here it is, Mount Colorama, taking over our kitchen table.

We narrowed it down, and Chuck analyzed the choices once again. This was harder than it looked; he kept going back and forth, asking what I thought, asking La Petite for her input, going back to the store for a few more. We started making comparisons. School bus yellow? No.

“Show me that yellow card again?”
Then Chuck picked a black-eyed Susan from a neighbor’s yard.

I brought home a bouquet from the Farmers’ Market.
Finally, Chuck brought home a sample can of the shade to actually put it on the wall.

It’s good. This is the shade.
Final pictures: when the carpet’s in and the walls are done, I promise I’ll share.

Share and Enjoy !

  1. >Just remember to think about what the room is to be used for…the feeling that you want to feel while you are in that room. Black eyed susan, what a wonderful color inspiration!

  2. >Picking colors is hard–but when you get it right it is great. I love bold colors and can't wait to see the finished result.
