Simon Says:

Help us find the perfect wall paint colors!
We are still needing to pick the kitchen, bathroom, and dining room colors. The bedroom and living room are a pretty teepee brown color with white trim/doors.
Here are some color ideas we've been throwing around...

We've narrowed it down to teal or orange for the kitchen, lime or orange for the bathroom and we're clueless on the dining room. I guess we could say orange for that room if all else fails, heh. We're stumped!

We have a built-in in the living room that is nearly identical to this and we're searching for the perfect paint to accent it with. I love this look! I saw it a while back in one of my 1960's home decor books... I'm even thinking maybe a vibrant plum to go with the teepee brown walls and keep the shelves and trim white.
Here's the yellow look:

We purchased this tapestry online from urbanoutfitters.com on sale for $19.99 for our bedspread. It's the perfect marriage of Ryan's and my own drawing style! We received it within a couple of days and love it! Our bedroom is almost complete!

Well I'm stil focused on apparel design but I am so eager to finish our home restoration project that I can't stay focused on one or the other for too long. I'm like a pinball jumping back and forth between projects.
Any help in picking paint colors is appreciated!

Love always,
