SNEAK PEAK of new paint color in our Family Room

Hi Cuties, I want to share with you what I was up to last weekend. I finally painted 
the accent walls in our family room. For those of you that have been following 
my blog for a while, you know I have been sick of the "ginger red" accent walls 
we had in the family room. I hate painting, so I lived with it for much longer than I should have. 

BUT, I finally got my butt in gear and painted over the red walls
with this gorgeous rich color from Sherwin Williams called 

Here is a reminder of what the color was 
BEFORE, very cozy and warm, 
but it was time for a change.

It's been nice ginger red, but time for us to part...

 I now think that I should paint the beige wall as well, something 
with just a "touch less yellow" in the paint, and more of a 
"lighter crisp". What do you think??? I think the contrast would 
be much better next to the gauntlet gray!!!

I put some branches in the corner and 
wrapped cute string-lights around them. 

 Can't wait to hear what you guys think....More of this room later...
I have lots more plans for this space!!!! Already ordered a cool 
Moroccan floor pouf from World Market. 
Can't wait!!

    Miss you

  5. Boy that really made a change! Looks great. The lights on the sticks are my favorite. :)

  6. I think you should change the colour of the other wall...white or a very light grey? You have a beautiful family room and I love the tree limbs with the lights too! Diane

  7. Christine te new paint color makes such a difference. I hope you also paint the other walls a crisper color it will make such an impact. And I can't wait to see your new pouf. I really like the branch and light idea, pinning. I am co hosting a new link party called Sweet Inspiration and would love it if you linked up with us. It runs Friday till Tuesday so we are cutting it short here, but if you put us on your list you can link up this Friday.

  8. Veel mooier zo.
    Lekker weer eens veranderen.

    liefs Anita

  12. So pretty and calming! Thank you for linking up to the Talk of the Town link party!

  13. Wow what a difference it looks great! I think I'm the only person in my family that likes grey and I need to get my butt in gear also.

  18. I love the gray, it looks great with your fireplace! I agree that a cooler tone neutral for the other walls would look better next to the gray.

  19. Hi Christine. Thank you for linking up with Pinbellish however can you please swap you links for your pinterest pins? Many thanks

  20. The gray gives the room a nice, fresh look. It's perfect with the fireplace. Pinned and Tweeted. Thanks for sharing at Snickerdoodle Sunday.

  22. Loving the new color! I would repeat it for the rest of the walls. It would make that room look bigger and showcase that gorgeous sofa.

  23. I love it all! I think I would raise the artwork to be higher above the sofa.

  24. Love the new paint color!! The branches with the lights look really good too. You have a very beautiful family room. Thanks for sharing at Sweet Inspiration!

  30. Good morning! Wow, your living room looks great with it's new colours! What about painting the other wall in white? If I had time, I would repaint a great part of our home, too. My tast has changed over the past couple of years.

    Warm wishes
