Paint colors!

I have been extremely busy these days as we bought a house at Los Altos Hills. The new house is amazingly spacious (for me, I would never image I will need all that space.). The previous owner did decent updates and remodel in 2005 so we only need to do a slightly face-lift for its exterior entrance and small revamps inside. It is always exciting when it comes to move into a new place, isn't it?!

So speaking of revamps, the most efficient way for me to give a house an instant character is NEW PAINT! I will show you a before and after picture once I am done with my house. There is this color, Dior Gray, from Benjamin Moore that I love so much in my old house that I am going to duplicate as an accent wall color in my new house. This way, I will always feel HOME anywhere I move. Don't you think so?

I am up for a challenge to do 2 colors in adjacent rooms in my house: living room and formal dining room. What I am planning is to have Dior gray on just one accent wall in the living room and pick a lighter gray to paint it entirely in my formal dining room.  Therefore, the flow of the color and space will not be cut off. What do you think? Good idea to tie 2 space together?? We will see!!
