When I was thinking about moving into this house, the tv room/family room/rumpus room was one of the few rooms I thought I didn’t want to re-paint. It was a warm sort of olive green. Not my favorite color, but not terrible. But after about 8 hours in this room, I hated it. It was dark and depressing. The blinds were dark. The lighting was dark. It was the color of pea soup. I don’t even like pea soup!
This, unfortunately, is what I actually lived in for weeks. A dark, depressing pea soup dungeon of piled-up furniture.
The big problem was: what color to paint it! By the time I settled on a color, there were 44 paint chips taped to the walls of this room. 44 shades of everything from emerald green to lavender blue, even cream, and seven big swatches of paint.
