Welcome Joan!


LOL, I like your screen name. We have another Joan that posts here too.


Is this a new home or are you redecorating? Do you have furniture or are you going for new?


I need to know what colors are in your furniture and style you like, if you are using what you have.


Earth tones are wonderful. Nothing like bringing some nature inside your home and I do have many earthy tones in mine. Your tile and carpet are neutral colors, so earth tones will go well. I wouldn't paint your doors the same as the walls........ unless you want them to blend in. White is always nice fresh and clean.


Come back with a little more info and we can work from there. Have any photos to share with us?


From my home to yours,


Happy 2008!


Thanks for joining in.

We recently painted 3 walls in our den a beautiful, light, mossy sage green color. The other we painted a nice cream, as it goes from the kitchen, den, and all the way down to the end of the hall. We have a tan couch and loveseat, dark mahoganey coffee and end tables, and a brown leather recliner. We also used a mocha-colored faux suede drape that we keep open over our lighter wood blinds. We have bright white trim (that we also painted) and an orangey-red brick fireplace. Our artwork also contains lots of orangy-reds. All that being said, It looks fantastic and I think your color-scheme taste is impeccable!

The good thing about using a neutral tone in your furniture is that you have the freedom to change your color scheme at any point by painting a wall and changing out accessories. You may want to consider that when picking your new furniture.

I think you are right on in wanting dark wood for your dining table and I think it will really contrast the orangey trim nicely.

Hi Joan!


Well, it's been a few months now. What colors did you go with?


Did you get your dark DR set? Was wonder how it looks.

A soft light yellow would be nice, but with your bright orange kitchen and brown hallway I was thinking more of a light khaki tan color (light yellowish tan)
