And there is Color.....FINALLY!!!

Since before this house was completed I have been picking paint.....I am a person who needs color in her life so needless to say these white walls have felt like a prison for way too long (like over 400 days....but whose counting).  We have finally painted our first room and I can't be more excited!! We picked the guest room since it would be the least bothersome and disruptive to our daily lives and it was a fairly easy and quick room to paint.  I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE how it turned out.   For those who are curious,  the color is Olympic brand-Toffee Crunch.  Initially we tried to color match it to another paint brand but it just had an uncomfortable hue to it......and knowing our past with "hue" issues (see our past blog about the pink siding), we thought better stick to the actual paint brand and quite honestly  the paint seems pretty good.    An y way I think the color really fit the style and comfort of the room and just finally makes it feel complete.  Now all we have left to do is make some matching toss pillows for the bed and chair and paint the dresser black to match the other items in the room.   Hopefully our guest room will make all our guests feel at home when they come to visit. 

 taking bedroom pictures is tough...but hopefully you get the idea!

So now with one room done we are actually on to the next and will be quite busy over the next few months finally putting some paint on these walls and making our house our home.   Of course we'll be keeping you all posted of our progress........


  1. This is very pretty! I actually like the white dresser with the combination. Or you can be bold and paint it the purple or darkest blue from the quilt.

    1. Thanks!! You know I did actually consider painting the dresser purple, but the purple in that quilt is really bright and hard to match....I was afraid it could possibly overpower the room. I don't mind the dresser the white but it really needs to be repainted and we already have black paint so I figured we may as well just make it black.... who knows I may still put some color on that dresser still!!

  2. It looks lovely!

    I kept thinking to myself "Don't they have a Ravenna?" I guess the bonus room changes the closet in the guest room to a different wall. And your register is in the floor while all of our registers on the top floor are in the ceilings.

    I don't think the purple would be too much. You could also just do the top, drawers, and sides in different combinations of purple and white (or even the grayish color in the quilt, which I'm might not be truly gray? I can't tell)
