It's a good thing Jeff doesn't read my blog, because this post might make him mad. I really want to paint our living room. I know that actually means that I really want Jeff to paint our living room, which is probably why he's vehemently against the idea. I get it. It's a big room and I have weak unhelpful arms. The khaki green currently in the room chosen by the previous owners just doesn't do it for me though. I think it looks muddy and boring with the other strong neutral players in the room (the natural stone fireplace, the white trim, the honey wood floors, white ceiling) and it doesn't let our art pop on the walls. It's a ho-hum color.
This next one isn't Aegean Teal, but Plumage from the Martha Stewart Line, which I saw on Young House Love. Really saturated and pretty. A little too dark for our living room though, but I still really like it. Teal is IN!
This is a little test shot from the Benjamin Moore website, which I think gives a good little hint at what it might look like in our living room, with the white trim, yellow curtains, wood floors, and brown sofa.
