The Apartment: Part 2

Monday, November 22, 2010

Thank you all for your input on color choices for my new apartment! I appreciated all of the comments and read them several times.

I finally decided that I wanted to go with teal, a bit heavier on the blue than the green. After coming to that decision, I was able to find the perfect inspiration on Google Images:

{I feel really bad, but I can't provide a source for this photo. I was downloading tons of photos from Google Images without thinking I'd need the sources for anything. By the time I really looked at this one and fell in love with it, I had no idea where it came from.}

I love it. This is almost exactly the picture I had been painting in my mind. Minus the huge sectional couch that would never fit in the apartment! :) But I love the deep color of the wall and all the bright, clean white that balances it out.

So my paint color is picked: Vista Marinho - "Sea View" in Portuguese - and I plan/hope to get the painting done this week before moving day on Saturday!

Aside from the primary paint color, all I know is that I'll use chocolate brown as the primary accent color. Any other color choices remain up in the air for now.

So what do you think?! Any suggestions before I begin painting?
