more house projects galore - the living room

As I said in my last post, my mom was a painting machine when she was up here a few weekends ago. One of our "sell this house" strategies is to tame our colorful eclectic palate so that it appeals to more people. Thus the pale yellow kitchen and now, the taupe living room. I have to keep telling myself that even though it seems a little dull, especially compared to our warm pumpkin hue, it is a better color for a sale. This way if someone walks in and tries to picture how their navy couch set will look, they won't immediately start to picture a Denver Bronco theme or anything. Also, while the pumpkin made it feel warm and cozy, the taupe makes it much more open and airy.

So, here are a few pics of the newly repainted living room, set with some before pics of the pumpkiny-goodness...

these two are photos from before we purchased the house...
these three were the wonderful pumpkin we have had most of our time here...

these final three are the new taupe...
