New Year, Time for Change

It's a new year, and it's time for change. After several months of decision making, finally found an accent wall color that my husband and I could agree on. The name is 'Autumn Curry'. Since I was tired of talking about it and anxious to get the new paint on the walls; I went out on Friday and bought the paint, paint rollers and away I went. The following pictures show the end results. I'm happy with the new color. The new color just pops, and warms the whole house. And, since both my husband and I were in agreement...he's happy too!

A view of the living room and the newly painted wall.

Out with the old....

In with the new! Don't you think the new color makes the slate fireplace just pop?


Another view from the living room.

A view into the family room/dining room area.

Again....out with the old, and.....

....in with the new!

Thanks for visiting. I hope you enjoyed a little peak into my home!

Hi Alice!!

I LOVE the new color! I have a similar color in my kitchen / family room and it makes it feel so much more warm and cozy. And your house already looks warm and cozy! Everytime I visit your blog I want to go over to your house.

Happy new year to you too!!!

HUGE difference!! Amazing what a little color can do, right? And great choice...very warm. AND I can't belive you did it yourself. I think I tried painting once...that was enough for me-I was terrible at it!

Oh, that's beautiful! It really does make your room warm looking. It kind of spices it up! I love how it sets off the wood floors and the fireplace.

Just beautiful! That color is so warm and sunny, just what is needed this time of year, but it will also look just sunshine filled in warmer weather:>) Gorgeous!
