B is for Blue

Over the last couple of weeks a lot of blue has gone up around the house.  I wanted grays, blues, tans and whites and so far everything is coming together nicely.  The color for the family room and the kitchen is Gray Morning by Behr.  After my llittle paint misstep in the kitchen the first time around I'm so happy that this color is just what I was picturing- a grayish blue.  Its very calming and serene.  Just what we need around here. 

There are so many things wrong with these pictures but just try to ignore that and focus on the pretty house : )

Obviously these wires will be hidden.  Thats the next step.  I'm just happy the tv is off the floor where its been for the past month and a half.

 I think I've finally decided on the rest of the furniture for the living room.  I found shelves for the back wall, side tables and a coffee table.  I still haven't been able to find a cabinet to hold our cable box etc but hopefully I can find that somewhere around here. 

Quick updates on the rest of the progress we've been making:

The dining room paint is complete and the room is cleaned out.  Too bad I haven't made a final decision on any of the furniture for this room yet.  I know the chairs and light fixture I want but I keep switching back and forth with the table. 

The "formal" living room.  I ran out of paint halfway through so obviously this is my next project to complete.  I think I finally have a direction as to where this room is going and I'm pretty final on my choices for this room too.  One day faaaarrr down the road when its done I think its going to be one of my favorites.

Finally, the bathroom.  We just added a few more accessories (rug, garbage can, diffuser and tissue holder).  Not too much left for this room.  Just something for the walls and then it will be complete.
