There is a time for Taupe and there is a time for Teal!

Have you ever had a moment when you looked around your house and you realized everything is brown?

I realized my practical mother of three side had purchased and painted everything in my home a very practical, not going to show dirt shade of brown.

When it comes to decorating your home being a residential real estate broker has its advantages, but in this case I had painted and decorated my house with all of the best neutral colors. Then it dawned on me, I’m not trying to sell my house. I live here with my family every day and I need COLOR!

The next day I went out and bought two samples of teal paint and came home and painted two swatches on my wall.

My total investment was $28 for a gallon of paint. Since then I have painted my family room, two dressers and a bench.

It’s amazing what you can do with a gallon of paint.

Every time I look at that teal wall I smile!
