Our First Home Improvement Project



videoWhile we love the space our new home has, we were not loving the outdated wallpaper in the living room/dining room/kitchen. It was old and starting to peel off the walls, and Sora found a weak spot and tore some off. We took that as our opportunity to ask Kyle's boss who said the house is ours and to do what we'd like. Kyle was excited to tear the wallpaper down and is already over 2/3 done. Now, I have the task of picking the paint color. This job is too big for one woman alone! I have always wanted a red accent wall, but am stuck on the rest! The wood cabinets, bar, and window/door treatments are all remaining the same color, and the black couch will remain as well.

I am a big fan of these two color palettes, and would love to have one wall red or green, and then was thinking of the kitchen/dining walls cream or lt. brown ish and the living room walls the opposite color.

I need your help! What would a reasonable person do? What colors do you like for which walls (or are my taste buds way off base?). Sue and Tasha, this one is for you!
