We closed on our house late last week and are now starting the process of making it ours. First up, paint - the easiest and most inexpensive transformation. Our house is currently all white. To my husband's dismay, we will be painting almost every single room. Unfortunately for him, half of the rooms have vaulted ceilings. I say "unfortunately for him" because at a full foot shorter than him, I'd have to teeter on the the highest rungs to be of any effect and that's just plain terrifying to me.
Our new dining room / living room area
Question - we have a pretty sizable entertainment center for the living room that we have no idea where to place. There are only 3 walls in the living room. 1 is a wall full of windows, 2 is a wall of windows and a fireplace, and 3 has a giant cutout to the dining room.
None are optimal, but which is least jarring?
We set out to paint a striped accent wall and the living room a slate gray with blue undertones. As the paint dried, it became more apparent that it was a distinct blue. Oops, would have been smarter to swatch it.
Stripes in Progress

Don't worry, we're not finished. The Frog Tape is still up and we'll be adding another coat today.
For upcoming projects, I will be sewing curtains, accent pillows, and maybe some bedspreads after the basics are completed.
Hope everyone had a great weekend!
