When we moved into our house, most of the main room was a terra cotta red. I didn't love it. We painted the living room a light blue last month and have been going back and forth on paint color ideas for the adjoining room, our breakfast nook.
I should mention that while Jesse and I agree on major stuff like how we want to raise children one day and our love of Basset Hounds, we have serious differences when it comes to taste in paint colors. We disagree early and often, which is probably why it's taken so long for us to address the still-unpainted breakfast nook.
On Saturday morning, we bit the bullet and headed to the Home Depot to get some samples.
Clockwise from bottom left, here are the colors we're considering:
Martha Stewart Miso
Glidden Lemon Ice
Glidden Spring Cactus
Behr Sausalito Port
Martha Stewart Sea Glass Green
I painted a few strips up on the wall...
...but clearly there can only be one color choice and so it's time to start playing mind games with Jesse.
I told him the blues (my two favorites) were manly. He told me that, given my preferred color scheme, I should have joined the Navy. I told him that the green, his #2 pick, made the room look like an easter egg. He told me that he thought the "miso", his #1 pick, looked like my alma mater's signature Garnet color (guess I'm not the only one playing mind games here).
As of yet, we're still undecided. Jesse's friends came to watch football this weekend and I basically forced them all to pick my colors as their favorites. Jesse isn't sold yet.
What do you think? Let me know and stay homey!
