I'm a big fan of color in a home. Maybe it's because I grew up in Minnesota and only stared at white for six-nine months out of the year, but I despise white walls, beige carpets and white trim. Unsurprisingly, I like homes with a bit more character.
I knew right away that our Jack n' Jill bath had to be one of the first rooms to get painted. The previous owners had two small boys, and they shared this bathroom. Let's just say that lime green isn't the best for the colors in the granite or the brick paver floor!

I mentioned in this post that I'm doing a bold, Texas-themed dining room. We bought a gorgeous wood table that seats eight and have rustic metal chairs with leather seats. The head seats at the table are upholstered in a fabric that resembles burlap (but much softer!) I want the walls to POP, so I went with an orange...

I started with the lighter shade (Sherwin Williams Copper Harbor) and decided that it wasn't the right shade! So I got a darker orange (Sherwin Williams Determined Orange) and started to like the lighter one better. What do you think? Lighter or darker? Help a sister out!
