But I think I have a whole house plan figured. I better because I want to get on to other things and just pick up the appropriate paint and do the rooms in between my real fun hobbies.
I've learned that I can't have it all and still have a cohesive whole which is very important to me. So I think this is the best that I can come up with on my own. Now I've been told the cranberry living room won't work but the same gal gave me a colour for the sitting room that I don't think goes with the 2 chairs. ??? I found a similar but better. (The 2 professional recommends are very centre bottom.) So why not 'my' cranberry. I'll be experimenting with that when I get there. I am also not using the decorator white for trim. I'd already decided it was too cold for me when I read about it being very overly recommended and there were much better choices. Then I took the next (RADICAL) leap. I do not like high contrast so why am I doing such light baseboards and trim??? I'm going to do each room a lighter version of the room colour. Gnash, gnash!!! It is only paint, remember, it is only paint! LOL!
The hall rug upstairs ties together the rooms represented on the left of my story board. (That very dark purple is my reconciling that a purple front door can work.)
The front room (dining room) rug is the fixed feature for the downstairs. (See, I'm still reconciling that purple door!)
The trick will be the stairway which is 2 stories. I want warm yellow greens upstairs to transition in the stairwell to the cooler blue greens in the downstairs. I have another pamphlet with a great combo that includes the 2 greens. It is possible I'll be painting all the walls a slightly different colour but it works out to about 8-10 walls depending on how you count so I should be able to ease the colours along without too much jarring. It doesn't show up very much but the up stairs rug has the warmer greens and a dash of blue green while the down rug has a bit of blue green in the leaves as well as that navy. Heck, I may be stretching it but there is some olive in the stems as well.
So the big question is- Am I thinking that it can work because I SO badly want it to work or does it really work?
