Big news: We’re leaving Brooklyn and returning to Richmond — in a week! We’ll be moving back into our old house with plans to give it a little refresher. Here’s what it looked like before we moved out…
Living Room: I’m over the chocolate-brown walls. The kitchen’s tan walls, too. We’re debating painting them both a light gray or white, which I think might help mask the different ceiling heights and the fact that windows and doors are different sizes.
Bedroom 1: The office will become our bedroom. I’ve always hated the dark taupe walls. I think they’re that Ralph Lauren suede finish because they’ve got a rough texture as if sand was in the paint. It must go! Considering gray or sky blue.
Bedroom 2: I still love the deep gray walls in this room. At night the walls seemed to just disappear and I felt like I was sleeping under the night sky. But soon this will be our baby girl’s room so it needs to get a lot sweeter. I love baby blue but I’m even considering a soft pink (although I think that will be less attractive for resale down the line).
The Hallway: This mustard-yellow turned out way darker than we’d hoped. It was sort of fun to have the boldness but it always felt a bit too strong. I’m debating a blue-gray but also wondering if we should do white. I want a much simpler interior for all our dark rugs and colorful art, but am a little worried that white will be boring.
