We have been in our current home for 4 years, I have managed to personalize most of our house except our family room. It is still the same color it was when we bought it. The problem was I did not hate the color, not love, not hate so this room was moved to the bottom of the to do list.
Well now I am so over the color and we desperately need some type of window treatment because the glare from the sun is really interfering with the hubs TV watching time.
It's a fabulous room, it was what sold us on this house, a huge family room with lots of light
but it's time for a change.
First off get rid of the yellow, and paint the walls blue. I have my colors narrowed down to...
Benjamin Moore "blue springs"
Benjamin Moore "summer showers"
Benjamin Moore "santorini blue"
I mean they really all 3 look almost identical but I think I am leaning towards summer shower, but that changes on a daily basis.
For our window treatments I ordered some bamboo shades, I love bamboo shades. I need to block the glare but I don't want our room to feel dark...
this wall color with shades is what i am going for (minus the white couch, I mean I do have 3 kids and a dog)
bamboo shades just a little darker in color
and finally we need to face lift our wet bar
I mean paint the cabinets, change the counter tops and voila
nothing to it!!
