Coming soon...

I Promise that pictures of my actual house will be coming soon! I just need to get it together and start taking pictures. Unpacking has been slow this time, maybe because I know I am not leaving here in a year or less, but I think I have everything out of boxes. So now I just have to put it all where it belongs. Then the real fun will begin! Painting!! Yes, I do have plans to paint every single room in the house. I think I will leave the closets alone and for now the stairwell hallway, its like gigantically tall. But things are moving along and soon...pictures!

As for the house, I am loving it! And particularly I am loving my washer and dryer! They are awesome! I never knew that clothes could come out of a dryer smelling THAT clean and be fluffy and soft and get oil stains out of a 2 year old's shirt! Its like a magic machine! THey are fast and very quiet. It dried two very fluffy adult sized blankets and Brian's sweater in less than 20 minutes and then there was hardly any lint to take out of the lint shield - that was shocking! Plus I love my fridge too! Its got a water filter inside the fridge and dispenses the water inside. So I love it!

The girls like their new room which is pretty big. THey have not gotten into having a separate playroom as much as I thought they would, but I htink it is because its not all set up right yet. Oh and Gwen's favorite hobby is watching the washer perform! She screams each time it changes directions in the spin and loves it when the water comes out. Hilarious!

Living Room stuck

So, I am pretty clear about most of the ideas I want to do in the house. I am, however, stuck on the living room. Right now it is red and that will do perfectly all through Christmas time because its Christmas! Anyway, eventually I want to switch over to blues and greens in the living room. Usually what I do is fine an inspiration room and take ideas from that or a few inspiration rooms. I am having trouble find just the right inspiration room though! I found one that I like the colors ok, but the walls are tan. So, any suggestions on what color I should paint the walls?? Here is my quasi inspiration room:
I really don't want it to look too beachy! I don't like the beach house look very much for my house. So any ideas?

I am really going to have to start painting soon, at least the girls room and maybe the kitchen because all of the tan is driving me crazy! Maybe I'll paint ALL the little rooms and then do the living room last. I am excited for the laundry room because I am going to paint it a pumpkin orange because you've got to have a bright laundry room!!

Here is my idea for the girls' bedroom. Its the easiest one for me to do because I've been planning it so long. Here are my inspiration rooms:

And then this is my inspiration colors for the Master, we will not have the zebra stripes though!:
