And it begins.

So today we made our first new home purchases. Nicholas headed straight for the power tools and I headed for the paint. Since I know you are all more curious about the paint I chose than the tool (a Dremmel Multi-Max, just in case you were wondering) below are the samples I got. The colors are not exactly right, they're brighter. I am still debating on the reds, which is why there are two, but all the other colors are the same. The second red is a little more purple, but I just don't know how they're all going to look on the wall, which is why we got samples of all of them. Please leave a comment with your opinion! I'm not married to any of the colors, this is just the basic idea.

Feel free to go to Behr.com and play around. It's one of my new favorite activities! The cream will be on every wall throughout the house that doesn't have one of the colors on it (hallways and non-accent walls). The red is for the front room and possibly the kitchen, the blue is for our bedroom, and the orange is for the second bedroom/future baby's room. The baseboards, trim, and casing will all be white. I love how the colors remind me of walking outside in the fall. Who doesn't love the fall??

Oh, this is the rug I found at Target that I want. I think it fits the colors pretty much perfectly! And I already have a couple throw pillows to match! I sure hope I still like these colors once I put them on the wall...

I like the paint colors. I also like playing with some colors. I think I found a new fun thing to do. I also found another color, orchid rose. I think it is pretty and would look good with the others. I think out of the two reds you already have I like the cherry one. I wish I could come down and help you with your house. It would be fun to paint and spend some time with you guys. Greg can probably still come though. Good luck with it all.

The only advice I have is "be ware of under tones" when you paint your samples shine a coulpe different lights on the wall to see what the really undertones of the paint are. For example my yellow walls have green undertones. Not my faviorite but because of that I choose a carpet with red undertones so it keeps my yellow walls yellow!

Good luck you two I am excited for you! I should be fun project!
