Decorating - Benneconomy 101- part 3

Ok, so we painted the family room on Friday. The color is sweater green by Ralph Lauren. The paint brand is Glidden. Very inexpensive paint, economical - code for cheap - $7.50 a gallon. What do you think? The color grew on me. Here's the before and after.

Big difference huh? All of the furniture in this room is going. I'd like a chocolate brown leather living room set in this room. The carpeting will be removed as well. We are thinking of laying down bamboo flooring, perhaps in a tan color. It's really nice in person.

Cute!! I suck at decorating! I'm so glad you found my blog! I could use a lot of your expertise! :) I'm loving your blog too! You have beautiful kids! I'd love to work at home some day so I could spend more time with my kids too!

So where do you guys live? Idaho?

Nice color! The room looks transformed already! Can't wait to see it with the new furniture.

That is a perfect shade of green! I like the contrast with the fireplace.
