Colors, colors, colors

Picking out colors is making my head hurt, literally! There's waaay too many to choose from. Luckily, I've gotten a bit of help, but it's still so overwhelming. Jose and I took a trip up to Berekely last week to The Craftsman Home, a little botique specializing in arts and crafts furniture and other amazing home stuff, because they were featured in American Bungalow Magazine and I really liked the colors in their store. They actually have a color consultanting business too, but luckily the woman who does it was there and was more than helpful, pulling out paint samples and writing down Benjamin Moore paint names for me to try out. It was a great start, but I wish she would come to our house and tell us exactly what to do in every room! I really want to go all out and choose bold colors, but I'm scared it's going to end up looking dumb. I need to just bite the bullet and do it though, because we really need to get the cabinets painted as soon as they're in. Now I understand why people pay color consultants to do it for them! I think I'm narrowing it down slowly though, and our walls are beginning to look like a rainbow!

So many choices!

The yellow too bright, I don't think we'll use yellow at all anymore.

The photo doesn't do the colors justice, but you get the idea.
