Changing colors

You now we got the outside of our house painted last week. It is beautiful – neutral, but beautiful. So clean and fresh. Owen and I put a bunch of gourds and pumpkins and mums out in front and it really looks sweet. It’s a pleasure to come home to.

Today the painters did the first coat on our living and eating rooms. It’s a deep bronze color – a greenish-brown that’s kind of gold. I didn’t know what to expect when I got home from work.

It is stunning.

It’s a far cry from the builder’s beige that we held onto for so long. It looks warm and cozy, even though the ceilings are two stories high. The windows are trimmed in white and really pop. The contrast is striking. Cait loves it as much as I do, and even Bill is happy about it.

I can’t wait until they finish up either tomorrow or Monday. The new ceiling fan will be installed Monday, and then we can put all the furniture back. We’ll have to reevaluate what prints and decor we put back up. We may even have to get some new stuff. And we can put up our fall decorations!

I’m so excited! This is the best this house has ever looked! It took nine long years, but we’re finally making it our own. I just got so sick of waiting to relocate again, I figured it was about time.

I’m so happy with the job the painters did, I’m going to have them strip the master bedroom and master bath of wallpaper, and then repaint them.

We’re planning a holiday party here I think December 4th. It’s going to be so beautiful by then!
