I just stumbled upon your blog tonight and thought you might be able to help! We are moving halfway across the US, and, as these things sometimes go, the new house will need to be painted before we move in. Because of the situation, we will be hiring the work done. Unfortunately, I will only have about an hour to "visit" the new home & finalize paint colors next time I visit the new city. Though I'm a newbie to your blog, I already know that you say paint doesn't come first...but I simply CAN'T live in a house with a bright orange living room. So, in short, what are your best, go-to, neutrals (though I'm not afraid of color...as long as it's not bright orange) for a fairly traditional interior with white painted woodwork in a 6 year old home? I'm not attaching pictures as I've not been in the new home long enough to take any of decent quality AND I know there will be furniture purchases AND I have no idea what said furniture will look like AND the lighting is also atrocious, which will also have to be changed, but that's another email completely! (P.S. Not that I'm feeling any pressure, but I know I have to make good choices, as hubby will DIE if we pay someone to paint...then I want to re-paint upon moving in!)
Thanks SO much!!
Well- it sounds like you have nothing to go on - and this is absolutely not the order to do things. So- here goes nothing:
