In our new house, all of the rooms are flooded with light from the windows. In an effort to maintain the breeziness of the house and the focus on the outdoors (one of the main reasons we bought the house), I am thinking very muted wall colors (grays, soft whites, and beiges) and paint all the trim. Some of the other rooms will be more colorful–the dining room I am planning on painting it navy blue with lots of white accents, and definitely a soft pink in B’s room. Right now the house has a lot of dark tan walls, and coupled with the wood tones of the trim it feels a lot heavier than it should be. That and the fact that the door trim and baseboards are all undersized for the rooms it can look a little goofy.
Here are some inspiration images that are floating around my brain…all of them are so light and airy.
