We have paint up in the studio and family room!! (the rooms are really light and bright, but I took the pics at like 5pm, so they look a little dark). We went with Benjamin Moore Linen White for the walls and Kelly Moore Swiss Coffee for ceiling and trims. That will be the ceiling and trim color throughout the house (since now it would appear we are painting much of the interior including living room and dining room, hallway, Meg's room, boy's room and kid/guest bath (after the scary wallpaper comes down). Our room will wait since we may be redoing it and our bathroom later. (plus, we can paint it ourselves, John is actually a really good painter and has done all of our painting up to now - which was the whole house). The stuff in the middle of these rooms is our floor which will be laid on Thursday.
This is the newly added family room - the trim stands out nicely from the paint, not sure that shows here.
This is the new studio (next to the family room, separated with a little glass french door).
This is more of the kitchen, thought I'll have new pics later today after it's been painted (Benjamin Moore Prescott Green). This is the view coming in from the eating area - that's my super black pantry at the end. I LOVE it! Of course, I have more storage than I ever dreamed and now I have no idea where I'll be putting things - we may even have a couple of empty cabinets (though I doubt that will last long). My pantry was some shelves in the garage, so this will be really nice!
I apologize for the bad lighting - I really need to figure my camera out better. We're really excited - so bear with me for a little longer with remodel posts (hopefully I'm not boring you out of your minds!). After this is done I can get back to crafting and sewing and cooking and baking - I can't wait!!
