Paint Color Pickle

We are having a difficult time deciding on a paint color. It is amazing how daunting paint is. It just seems so permanent because if you get the wrong color, you're either stuck with it or forking out a ton of money that could have been avoided.

We've narrowed it down to two color choices. I am going to get those sample sizes in each and see what they look like later. I just had to vent and see if it helped make the decision clearer for me.

Here are the things to consider:
1. the bedding has a particular color range and if you travel too far outside of it, the whole room will feel chaotic
2. there is tons of natural light as we have two big windows
3. there is going to be A LOT of dark brown wood in the room which may make the color feel heavier (crib, hutch, dresser, rocker, brown rug on floor, etc.)
4. the carpet is a beige-like brown
5. what if the color is not soothing enough to entice one to sleep/makes him angry
6. the room is huge. it's like 16x21 or something like that
7. I am just plain crazy

Here is the blank canvas:

The first photo is truer to the color. I took 1000 pics and none would process the color correctly.


The green is not lime green. it's more of a sage

About Me

My photo
I'm a new wife and an even newer mom. I have a secret dream to be super-mom. I love to craft, cook, dance and fill my life with as many adventures as possible. I'm slightly crunchy granola but enjoy a good steak. I'm right brained and type B (with some type A tendencies). I thrive best when I get to use my creative juices. I dabble in photography and party planning. I play piano and have a dream to learn the cello. I want to make the most of this one, short life I find myself living.

About This Blog

This blog was originally intended to be a personal journal of my pregnancy journey and all that that entails--shared with only a few close family members. It was a way for me to keep them posted on all things baby and occasionally post a picture of my growing torso so they could see the progress. After several posts, I started to get hooked on other blogs and became motivated to attempt to do more with mine. We'll see how it goes....
