How artsy are you? Can you draw? the Mural sounds like a cute idea. I think a soft green would be pretty, and for the floors a lite hard wood or a lite colored tile?

I love sage colered walls. Any of the light sage are beautiful. Your little one is too cute.:)

That dining room looks like a great room and would be fun to redecorate! My bathroom has a striped green paint to it--vertical stripes so it almost looks like wallpaper. It's very cool. Email me at henhowz@comcast.net and I'll see if I have a pic downloaded that I can send you. I probably do because when we moved in I took a bunch of pictures! Also, love that you call your kiddies SPAWN! Yeah, in reading Marel's post, my walls are like a sagey color--very subtle, pretty and green!

Oh you have hard woods floors...CRYS I want hard woods floors..LOL

What about a wood molding boarder at about 3 or 4 foot up the wall that matches the color of the floors then paint it a green color from that point down and keep the top half white? Get some of those fake designer wicker plant tables and put in each corner but instead of plants use candles of different hieghts of a rasberry or warm red color to go with the green.. etc.. omg I could go on.. I am gonna stop babbling oh oh could get a fruit tree thing.. with the nails and put apples on it that you spray with that stuff and then put greenery in the spaces ofr a table center piece. aahh ok am leaving..

I want your floors... I love hardwood floors....as far as colors... I am so NOT good at choosing them. But I like the idea of sage - maybe do one wall in a darker color, and the others lighter, or use a chair rail, and do the bottom half darker green and top half a lighter shade.

Bossy♥'s YOU said...

thank you for all the suggestions..I am really liking the sage thing..and jaws i like the idea of the wood border..

ok..soon i am posting some of the kitchen and my bedroom....

The best advice I can give that was given to me is to pick out something you like...a picture, pillow, figurine, and get your color from there! I used to pick color first and after it was all done, it was just okay to me. But now that I pick something that will be in that room and get the color from that, every room I've completed turns out to be exactly what I want...and yes, I'm a fanatic paint it again if I don't like it type of person....lol.

A sage green would be really nice and soothing in the dining room. You could pick out a couple of really pretty framed prints for the walls and a nice, new area rug. Wooden window shades would look nice too.
Hello little spawn!
