When we moved a year and a half ago, it was a stressful time, and the most important project was to paint my daughter's room. I've moved too many times to count in my life, but my daughter could not remember the times she had moved, because all her moves were before the age of two.
My daughter wanted a blue room, which at the time was a big change from her former room painted Ralph Lauren's Mission Pink, a vibrant pink; think, "Dora the Explorer". So we painted the room a pretty blue gray called silvermist.
Recently, there was lots of murmuring that silvermist was cloudy and gloomy, and that some colors make one feel brighter. The room discussed faces north, so it gets the least amount of sun, a nice feature in the summer; this room is also connected to the reading room, and if the color is changed, the two room's color will have to relate, and the colors have to work with what we already own.
Like ourselves, a home seems to become with us.
