I Am on a Roll, People!

Things have moved along quickly the past few days on the home-decorating front. On Monday we ordered living room furniture from Candise Olsen's line at Norwalk, and yesterday we ordered bedroom furniture from Ethan Allen. Today I painted the ceiling in the bedroom (which seemed to go surprisingly well; I'll be able to tell once it's fully dry) and tomorrow I'm painting the bedroom. Today I got some new wallpaper samples in for the foyer. I changed my mind about the one I had picked out. I liked it, but it just didn't flow well with the rest of the colors I had painted. So I think that a paper with red in it would work better: The library behind this feature wall is painted red, plus I'm using red accents in the living/family room and the kitchen. I have also decided to use turquoise accents in the living room to coordinate with the kitchen, so I have a few papers up that have turquoise in them. I have marked my favorite papers with blue post-it flags. If you can see them well enough, please let me know which ones you like. The ones I have marked have colors in them that match the existing foyer paint color, which would be very helpful. I am leaning toward a floral design since Pottery Barn's twig hat rack would coordinate nicely, but I do like the modern circles too.

I should have a post on the new bedroom color soon. Picking a color has been harder than all of the other rooms, but I think that we finally found one.

NOTE: Click on a photo to enlarge, or you're welcome to stop by my house to see them in person if you're in the neighborhood.

And besides being on a roll, I'm also on a boat.

I like 17 if you want bold, 16 if you want more subtle.

I'm very impressed with all of your progress! I really like 20. And 25.

My mom didn't like any of the red ones. Right now my fave is 17.
