I thought I would share a shot of the living room with the newly painted white walls. I am not as excited as I would have hoped. Why? Because I had NO IDEA how changing the walls from a beigy color to white would make such a drastic change! My room went from warm to way cool ( not the "cool" kind of cool either.) My whole house has a warm tone to it and painting the walls white seemed to really change the whole feel of the room. I am not saying I don't like it, I'm just saying I am now in transition. I did not think that changing the wall color meant I now see accessories, such as pillows and wall art that needs some tweaking.
I need to tell you guys that normally I am really decisive and like what my gut tells me when it comes to decorating my home. I have wanted the living room white forever and now that it is, I am second guessing myself.
What I learned from this....
Paint can change everything, make sure you are up for a decorating challenge after painting and I personally don't like the transition period in decorating a room. I feel unbalanced. Hopefully I can find my balance in yoga tonight.
This doesn't mean I am not up for the challenge! I will be back soon with the tweaks I have in mind for making this room warm right up.
