FINALLY!! [UPDATED]



















We finally chose a color! We've taped up the kitchen and we're ready to paint today! WOOHOOO! Our friend, Deborah, is here for the week and we'll be gettin' 'er done today! :)

Thanks for all the previous suggestions! Goodbye awful yellow-orange... hello ???

What's your guess? What did we decide?


UPDATE:

Although I really, really wanted a shade of green, I couldn't find any that agreed with our floor. I pulled tons and tons of shades from Low.es. Brought them home, compared them to the floor and had them hanging on the wall. I couldn't decide on anything. Then, Jeff and I went to Low.e's together and within 10 minutes, he narrowed it down to two shades. We went home and easily decided on this one called Sand.




Although the pictures really don't do it justice... it really is such a beautiful neutral color and so calming. My kitchen no longer screams at me! :)

Thank you, Deborah, for all your help! Ok, maybe I should let you say that to me because you did most of it and I just helped. :) Thank you so so much!!!

I love the color it really makes your white trim stand out, but not in a shocking way. A calming kitchen that is what a mom needs.

It's beautiful! I love the way the "sand" looks with the white trim. Lovely!

Definitely very nice choice! Warm but not 'screamin'! Looks good with the floor and should be more versitale if you decide to change up the furniture or decorative pieces. Good job!

BEAUTIFUL!! It looks almost identical to the color I have in my house called Sourdough (my kitchen is green though).

I think it looks great! But I guess I would since this is very similar to the color that we just used in several rooms in our house, including the kitchen!
