Alright blog world. I have a confession to make.
I am sort of the worst when it comes to decorating my home.
We've been in our home for a year, and M's nursery is the only complete room in the house. In fact, I haven't even really attempted to work on any of the other rooms because it's such a daunting task.
I love pretty rooms and homes, and I can pin pretty spaces like the best of 'em, but I don't have a single interior design bone in my body. So help me out....please!
A few months ago I bought a new rug for our living room.
I really love our new rug, and it matches our couches nicely. The couches that we have are an olive/beige color. Here they are a few years ago in our rental home in Virginia (look at those nice blue walls...a color we did not choose! It's definitely not in the running this time.).
So here's my question....with our olive colored sofas and our colorful rug, what colors would you paint the walls???
I've been playing around on the Sherwin Williams App "Color Snap" (which is pretty cool, btw!) and I've come up with a few options...
Out of those colors, I am sort of leaning toward the red one, Peppery. Am I crazy? Is a red living room too much? Or should I just give it a shot...it is just paint, right? We have a lot of natural light in this room during the day, white trim and plantation shutters, and a white fireplace, so I'm thinking that would help lighten it up and the read would balance out some?
If I don't do red, I'm thinking maybe Reddish or Reddened Earth. Thoughts on those? I am just so bad at these things and need some guidance. You can also tell me all my choices are crazy and to go with something else. I'm open to all ideas! Comment away!
