Paint, Paint, Paint
The previous owners of our house had good taste in paint. We liked every color in the house, but we wanted to change things up. Paint is an easy and relatively inexpensive way to change the feel of a room or an entire house. The previous owners had 3 daughters and we have two sons, so we wanted to give their bedrooms a slightly more 'boyish' vibe without painting both of their rooms the standard baby blue.
Here are pics of our older boy-H's room (excuse the mess):
Here are some pics of our little boy, T's room:

We decided to keep the carpeting in the rooms as the stripes are playful and good for a kid's room. We already bought new ceiling fans for both rooms, so those should be up shortly.
I decided to paint my dressing area in the same color as the living room in our apartment (Creamy Orange by Behr) because I wanted to bring a little piece of our apartment into our new house.
Are there any colors that you use over and over again?
