To refresh your memory, here is the BEFORE pic of my living room.
Hubby and I re-painted our living room and dining room walls in the same Flame Blue paint. The fresh coat of paint really made a difference. The only thing left to paint were the arches. I no longer wanted the pearl, because it attracted dirt and fingerprints way too easily. What I wanted was a dark brown/mocha color. The color palette revolved around an accent tapestry that I wanted for my couch cushions.
In my mind, it was all going to work. Well, atleast it should have. But thanks to a mix up at the paint store, instead of mocha, I got caramel. Not exactly the color I was hoping for. Not even close.
After a few days, I started getting used to the color. So much so that I had forgotten what my living room used to look like. The caramel may not be the color I had hoped for, but it still works with the fabrics I chose for the couches.
All I have to do now is wait for Hubby to get a little free time so he can start on my couches.
In the meantime, I'm starting to have doubts about what I originally wanted. Last week, I was debating on whether I should change the caramel to orange or purple. It would look great with my multi-colored dining room chairs. But then one of Hubby's customers brought in a gorgeous cow print. Sigh!
Have I mentioned that I'm crazy about cows?
So now I'm having visions of a country & western theme. Tan faux leather couches. Cow print cushions. Cowboy hats and boots. Cactus. Pictures of horses and John Wayne on the walls.
What would Martha Stewart do?
