For quite some time I’ve been wanting to paint some of my walls white. I know, a lot of you will think I’m crazy and I’ve thought that many times myself and well I pretty much am. If you know me well you will know that I change things a lot, as probably most decorators do. If I could reverse time I could have just kept the white walls the way they were when we moved in 7 years ago! I had this brownish/grey (but mostly brown) color in so many rooms in our house and I was just “getting tired of it,” …yes, those words my husband loves to hear. I want more of our spaces to be bright and airy and, as you can see in the photos that is exactly what happened! There is so much more light coming into the room now! I love it! I was thinking of using an off-white, but fell in love with Bre’s room at Rooms for Rent and decided to go with the same color that she used. The wall color is White Heron by Benjamin Moore. I also didn’t want the hassle of worrying about undertones of yellow, green, blue, violet…etc. I dislike painting walls very much to say the least and I knew that I didn’t want to have to repaint them after not being satisfied with the white that I chose. So, after the painting was finished I asked my sweet, sweet husband to help me move these grey sofas down from upstairs, thinking that I wanted them in this room to satisfy the kid friendly desires of our hearts. Well, after a few days (ok, only 36 hours), they were just too dark for what I was trying to accomplish. So, after much moving around and up and down the stairs with many sofas, I decided to ask for your opinion!
I want to hear what furniture option you like the best! Please help a girl out! I realized that even though the furniture we have may not have been what I would order if we had the money to buy it brand new, I still love it all and am so thankful that we have this much furniture to play with all of these scenarios. The room is not finished completely with decor but the photos will give you an idea of arrangement possibilities. The first picture is the “before” of the room, brown walls, curtains, rug and all. And please if you like the brown wall color better than the white, just keep it inside and don’t tell me, lol! Although, I do love the white and I always say “if you love it and love to live in it, then go for it!”
So, here goes…I’m ready to hear what you have to say!…Comments on these options, please! Which of these pictures will receive the most votes? And, thank you in advance for helping me out! Source list will be on final room reveal post…
