Just being able to look from my bedroom, for instance, to the hall, to my daughter’s room and see that colors are starting to feel pleasing together (good-bye, swine) and seeing the wood floors connecting the rooms instead of the carpet I didn’t like… OH MY HEART just does a little happy jig at how pretty it is turning out. Foundational elements like walls and flooring really make such a difference in how a house feels!
This picture, above, is looking from our bedroom, which is kind of a blue-gray (Glidden Wood Smoke, lightened) to the hall into my daughter’s room.
Wood Smoke, lightened, is not the same as Studio Taupe, but it is a really nice soft gray with a bit of blue.
I’ll have more pictures of my bedroom progress in an upcoming post, but I am really happy with the color. Long story (sheesh, I’m trying to keep this short), but my daughter has switched bedrooms TWICE since we’ve lived here and she is moving back into her original room so we can use the bigger bedroom for an upstairs family TV space and hangout room for our son and his friends.
As a side note and decorating tip, I don’t think all the rooms in a house need to “match” in order to flow.
