Choosing Paint Colors

After almost 17 years in our home, we are FINALLY going to redecorate the living room, dining room, kitchen and main bathroom!  I got my wish of finding a way to preview how different colors would look in our rooms when I went to Lowe's and looked at a brochure titled "Be a Color Genius."  at Lowes.Olympic.com, you can actually do this!  I was SO excited to find this that I spent three hours playing around with this on Saturday night! 

Right now our living room is blah white with white wallpaper with a light flower print in it on two walls in our living room and one in our dining room.  Our kitchen is a pastel yellow and our bathroom is a very light pink! 

I'm tired of the blah look and old outdated wallpaper.  It's was fun trying different colors and we are narrowing it down and have pretty much decided what we want to go with. You can see our "before" pics and the new looks that we are planning to do here.  If you have any color suggestions you think we should try, let us know in the comments.
I encourage you to give this cool feature a try!

You did a great job picking much more cheery colors for your house! Love the purple! Be sure to get samples and try them first on various walls just in case it looks different in your house than it does online. Removing the wallpaper is a horrible job but it'll all be worth it when it's done. Have fun!

Beaded Tail has a great idea about trying out those colors before you commit to painting everything. Sometimes what you think you're getting you aren't.

How fun this will be.

Have a terrific day. Scritches to the babies. ☺

don't freak out about using color. It's an adjustment at first, but you will learn to love it as you go along.

Hooray for fun colors!
