I hope you have all had a great weekend!
We are going to continue the topic of finding inspiration for your home. My fried Sonya has a new, beautiful home and we are in the process of decorating her dining room.
She first ventured in design when she allowed me to help her pick paint colors.
she was nervous...to say the least.
I asked her, "what colors do you like?"
....no real answer. So do you like green?...not really, yellow...hmmmm. We continued like this for some time so, I gave her a project.
I had her go to her paint store ( Sherwin Williams) and just look and the wall of color samples. I told her to choose any color she was drawn to. She was not to think about if it would look good or even if it was practical, just get it and bring it to me.
She agreed and her whole world of color choices was born....
We went through the colors, she had a couple that she loved.
First: Red Barn:
She was pretty sure she wanted this in her dining room.
I was proud of her...

We used Anjou Pear in her office, mudroom and her kitchen/family room.
She loved it everywhere, except the family room/kitchen so they changed their mind to
Some other colors we chose for her home included:
(aren't those floors gorgeous??)
The view from the kitchen, (Whole Wheat ).
We haven't decided which way to place the rug.. I prefer it longways, but we will see once we get the furniture in there!!!
I hope you will come back to see the progress we make on this room and keep my honest concerning the budget..
so far we have only spent 175.00
ON the RUG...ha!
