Ohmygoodness - I haven't even had a moment to write about the upcoming move! That's probably because we're now madly prepping everything for the new place, ie: packing, packing, packing! We're moving next Saturday.
So, all day yesterday we were filling holes and sanding and wiping and painting the new place. The paint there is kind of a shambles - it's a basement suite, not the well-managed apartment buildings with fresh paint jobs we're used to.
We're talking brown/purple peeling ceiling paint & bad brown doors. Ugh!
I've been gathering some color inspo so we could pick paint:
Think I like turquoise, orange, and yellow?! hah. :)
We're planning on light & dark turquoise for the bedroom's main wall, and that's about all, for now. lol. I want white in my workspace because everything in it is so colorful...maybe mustard yellow on the bathroom door or in the kitchen? Hmm. I'm crossing my fingers that I'll find a blue or orange velvet couch next week while we have a truck rented, but we'll see...lol.
If you follow me on twitter, you may have seen me contemplating the dilemma, too: we only have so much money, and we need a few vintage dressers for storage in the new place. I am a big believer in strong men being paid to move my things for me (lol), but when I realized it's only $60 to get a truck for a whole day (which is less than what movers charge you for just one hour of their time), I realized I can get a whole lotta dressers instead with that cash, instead. lol. Maybe I'll build more muscles before then, magically?! :)
What colors/places are you finding inspiring right now?
