paint chips and dream decorating

I could barely sleep last night -- why, you ask? Because James and I may have found the cutest, most affordable place to live when we get married (and it's not a drafty cabin!).

Seriously, all night long, I tossed and turned, thinking of paint colors for the walls, and ways to dress up old furniture and make it look chic.

Right now, I'm really loving grey walls. Powder blue, grey, white, and either a blush or a soft violet.

Grey, white, and lavender from paloma81

This powder turquoise blue is also nice from paloma81

Ah! All I need to remember is, if you think the paint chip is too light, take it one shade lighter still. I've made my mistake with blue -- deep blue. And I will not make that mistake again.

Maybe we need to make some poster-board paint chip mock ups? Maybe we need to sign that lease? :)
