Painting Again!

I finally picked out the paint colors for the new house and, luckily, made it to the 40% off sale at Sherwin Williams last week.  The new colors are a lot different than the light/cool gray we did in our last house and this is the first time we haven't had any rooms painted blue. The colors we chose are definitely darker but we have a lot more chunky white trim in this house and I'm excited about seeing the wall colors make it pop. The nice thing is that the builder is going to provide the labor so, for the first time, we don't actually have to physically paint the house! Yay!

Here are the colors we chose:

Great Room and Kids' Bathroom: Sherwin Williams Relaxed Khaki

Master Bedroom: Benjamin Moore Kendall Charcoal

Master Bathroom and Laundry Room: Valspar Urban Sunruse

The kids' rooms will eventually get white v-groove wainscoting on the lower four feet of their walls and these colors will be above:

Nursery: Benjamin Moore Middlebury Brown

Our Daughter's Room: Custom Green

Rug Time

I have long been a fan of indoor/outdoor rugs for their casual look, decent prices, durability and how easy they are to clean. I especially love using them for dining areas. In my search for rugs to put in our new house I ran across some great ones (at great prices!) at Ballard Designs and Make sure to click on the photos at Ballard Designs to see additional views and colors.
