I picked out a color for the living room and kitchen. Everyone has been saying we need a bolder color in those areas. Since they open into each other, I am just going to use the same color for both.

I tried to do a sample of the color it is from the xmas pics... that is below...

Nope it didn't show the right color. It is like a light buttercream yellow. The color I have picked is Behr's Amazon Moss. If you go to this site, and do select a paint... and type in Amazon Moss it will give you the color. http://www.behr.com/behrx/workbook/

Anyway, DH is working this weekend, so I told him if he helps tape it off on Friday night, I will paint what I can on Saturday. He left the color in my hands, I sooooo hope it looks good! Most of my picture frames and accents are gold colored, my couches are beige/light tan in color and we have the wood fireplace and tables.

The kitchen right now is this nasty light green color that just reminds me of mint ice cream or like the inside of an ice cream parlor....

The living room is pretty open, not huge but big enough. It has the stairs going up also so it give that a more open look. The kitchen has one of those real big cutouts for the door.

I like it a lot! It looks a lot like the color we used in the hallway going downstairs from the kitchen. It is pretty dark on the walls though, jfyi.

I think it'll look good. However, if you don't like it it's just paint and can always be changed.

I will take before and after pictures. I am excited though. I have a ton of gold picture frame collages and such that have just been sitting around with no pictures that I want to get hung up and we have been wanting to paint for so long that I just haven't done anything. So after I get it all done, I get to work on picking out pics to put in them and we have a ton of professional pictures still in their sleeves to get up that I want to put up the hall.
