I know I've mentioned before that I love color. And no, no progress yet on priming my dining room. It's not quite Memorial Day yet! I also love consulting people on color choices for their homes.
Recently, I've been acting as personal designer to my friend and coworker Tammy on her home renovation projects. She'll be posting more of the details later on her blog The Lean Remodeler, but so far I've helped Tammy and her amazing husband choose flooring and paint colors for most of their house. Did I mention her husband was amazing? Good, because he is. No renovation can be completed without someone who is willing to jump in and do the work. Um...yeah, that's right, just like my dining room. Those walls aren't going to paint themselves!
Sean installed all of the new flooring himself. He has done all of the painting himself, although Tammy helped by painting the baseboards. He even painted the ceiling of one of the hallways as I suggested which most people would have second guessed me and opted not to do, and it looks great!!
Now it's time for some more fun. Their spare bedroom is their daughter's playroom and it needs to be painted. Their daughter wants pink or purple (her bedroom is already pink) but Tammy would like to see something a little more flexible and able to span a few years without her daughter burning out on those stereotypical girl colors. I wanted to have some fun with the color choices because it is a sweet little girl's playroom after all. Tammy and I also thought it would be fun if all of you voted on the color palette.
|The four color palette choices.|
|You'll notice the two stripes will be different widths to keep it from being visually boring or predictable. The top stripe will be about chair rail height. You don't want to cut a wall right in half. That's not visually appealing.|
|Palette A - The blue would be the base color.|
|Palette B - The blue would be the base color.|
|Palette C - The purple would be the base color.|
|Palette D - The yellow would be the base color.|
