Ground Ginger

We finally have gotten around to painting the living room. As you may remember we have needed to do this since January and with the help of some dear friend (the Haney's) we got it done this weekend. It's a real change for us because we have always had a dark color in the space the 9 years we have lived here. We started with a chocolate brown and then changed to Orange. It's definitely taking me some warming up to the lighter option but I am coming around. It feels clean and crisp which is a great way to enter the house! The past two times we have painted we have used Behr's new Premium Plus Ultra which is a paint plus primer. It's a little more expensive but so worth it!! We painted over the orange with the light yellow with only 2 coats! And here are the results... (drum roll please :-)

    I think this shade of paint would meet my wish for some color, and Beloved Husband's requirement for light and airy...
