Spring – a time for change

Doesn’t everyone’s spring cleaning involve painting a room or two?  Mine seems to.

The kitchen / breakfast room / gathering room is one open area and one paint color for all three gives a connective look.

My taste is usually light, neutrel colors for the walls. Two years ago. I decided I wanted to try a darker and richer color. I did and it looked ok. I knew I would be painting it again sooner or later so I left it for a while to see if the color would grow on me.

It didn’t…… and we recently tackled the three room project. I’m loving the new lighter look.
