Fact: When someone invites you to move into their house, it's only fair for you, the new person, to get to redecorate.
Boyfriend has lived like a boy for many, many years. When I asked him about the curtains in his living room, he explained that they were there when he moved into the house... Eleven years ago! Needless to say, those curtains are now gone!
The walls in the house are all white, with small black and white photographs. While the photographs are beautiful (and taken by Boyfriend himself!), they get lost on the big walls.
My first task is brightening things up, and I'm starting with the master bedroom. I got Boyfriend to sign off on my painting the bedroom grey. But there are lots of colors of grey:
The paint swatches to the right are all my ideas for accent colors - I'm leaning towards dark blues (the middle blue in the swatch) & yellows!
