New Couches, New Colors

When I wrote about our old couch this morning, I intended to photograph the new couches and include them in my post. But then I accidentally pushed the publish button before I intended to. Then I found my camera batteries ran out just when I needed them and no new ones were in the charger. The pictures are a little delayed, but here they are.
Here is the couch I bought a couple years ago. It has been moved into the spot held by the old couch and looks very lovely there.

And here are the new/used couches I just brought home this week. (Can you believe that they wanted to sell them after just one year? There is nothing wrong with them. They decided that they would rather have leather.) They are in our family room, which is connected to the kitchen, making one big airy room. Some of you may remember my purple kitchen. When I stand at the sink, which is in an island, with the purple wall behind me, this is what I see. You can see the purple wall on my old blog here.

The reason I'm telling you about this is I bought paint today so I can update the room. The white walls have been there ever since we moved to this house. I've been hoping for time to put some color on them. I feel a little daring, and I hope I'm not making a mistake. But I do know if I don't like it, that I tried, and I can go choose a better color. My friend reminded me this morning that it is just paint.

I am hoping to put the warm cinnamon brown/burnt Sienna color on the wall you see behind the new couches, and on the small wall you don't see, to the right. The peachy color will go on the wall to the left which includes the wall with the grape table cloth and curtains in my other blog. The lightest color will go on the ceiling, and the next to lightest color will go on some other white walls in the hall etc. I'll try to remember to photograph it when I'm finished. I can't wait to see if I like it. I hope it won't be too shocking for friends who prefer safe pale colors.

I'm catching up on my reading tonight & read that first post.. then I was sorta wondering.. I thinks she forgets something, it seems like the post wasn't finish. I guess I was right =).
Oh.. those couches looks really comfortable to snuggle into.
I love those pictures of tomatoes! They look so real in my screen, I feel like reaching out & grabbing
Have a blessed weekend!

Simply beautiful! Love your new couches! And I really like your paint idea. It will look lovely! I like the color. Happy painting!


PS: I have the same lamps --- I love the nature scenes in them when lighted. They are at our cabin (which has newer lamps than our home does).
