Hello there! I’m so glad you stopped by today!
We are finally buying a house y’all!
Can you believe it?
We are under contract and it’s been rough jumping through the hoops of trying to get a mortgage. It’s all still up in the air, I’m trying not to get too excited, but I don’t think I’m succeeding.
[Update: we got the house! We have begun our remodel; feel free to subscribe to follow along!]
I’ve been mulling over paint colors for two weeks. If we are able to complete the purchase of the house we are trying to buy, I will be doing a lot of painting! It’s pretty much a big white box right now. I have a good idea of where I want to go with colors, but there are so many beautiful colors out there, it’s going to be so hard to choose! Do you have trouble picking paint colors too?
Today I put together a whole-house paint scheme I like to see how all the colors would look together. Kind of a paint color test drive. I wanted to try it out “virtually” and see how the colors flowed together. So I chose this adorable little house and floor plan, so I could see how the colors looked next to each other.
Isn’t it adorable?!
Creating a paint color floor plan helps to visualize how the colors would look in adjoining rooms. This would be a great way to test out paint colors on your floor plan, even before you buy paint samples. Maybe I will do a post on how to create your own paint color floor plan? [edited to add: see the Create your own paint color floor plan post here!]

I hope you find this paint scheme idea helpful when choosing colors for your home! I definitely recommend doing some research before buying any paint. There are lots of photos on sites like Pinterest and Houzz of the colors in rooms and different lighting. For even more ideas and painting tips, check out my “Painting” board on Pinterest.
