Isn't this a cozy spot?
I adore this room even if it is full of boots.
Back to the Question at hand...
Oh...you can't beat this marshmallow of a room with it's candy colored furniture.
Love the different shades of blue/turquoise in this white room.
I've been wanting to paint my living room and dining room for quite some time.
I keep going back and forth between sea foam green walls or white walls.
I've pinned favorite rooms over and over trying to decide.
When I pinned this room...I thought .."Oh that's it for sure!"
Another room that made me sure sea foam was the way to go.
So pretty with all the white.
So fresh with the brown furniture and walls.
But I've always loved this look.
And just last week I pinned this room and it made me change my mind about having blue walls.
This is the color of my living room now.
Ivory lily is the color....or pale pale butter yellow.
I have come to hate it.
This used to be my most favorite room in the world saved long, long ago from either Country Living
or Country Home. But now...I would not like the yellow striped walls.
Because my art tile fireplace is sea foam green,
I've thought having a similar yet lighter color on the
walls would ground the space and make the fireplace more at home.
I did a quickie mock up in photoshop of how a light sea foam paint would look.
Here a little darker.
And here white.
What is your opinion?
I am ready to start painting.
I already have the sea foam paint but it occurs to me that I should probably paint with
primer first which would be white and that would tell me if I liked white in the room or not.
Tell me what you think.
Sea Foam or White?
