Fall leaf or Rum Raisin?

ok, after 2 years in our house of white walls, Cob and i are taking the plunge to paint a wall. we're not painting a room - just a wall. actually two walls that connect our foyer to our kitchen. i feel very clever about this - playing with space and creating flow in my house. feeling oh-so-clever, i then contemplated paint colors. we wanted warm (it IS the foyer after all and we want people to feel welcome), but neither of us are bold decorators (which is why we have all white walls to begin with). so, 271 paint chips, countless suggestions from friends (namely Cara, Theresa, Norma, and Kristen), and a couple of bottles of wine later, we have a winner! or rather, we have two potential winners: rum raisin and fall leaf.

Kat suggested buying a small amount of paint and painting a 2'x3' section. trying on the color for size but not really committing, she said. since i couldn't decide between two colors, there are well, 2 sections of paint. Cara demonstrates her patented "W-V" technique.


as i said before, there are really two walls that connect to one another, and in so doing, connect the foyer to the kitchen. however, in our house full of light that changes on a minutely basis, these two walls carry the same paint in very different ways. and we needed to know what that looked like. our two sections turned into four. Cara painting in the foyer.

now remember, we're deciding between an orange, which is happy and light, but maybe a little happier and lighter than i feel these days. the red is nice, but oh-so-dark when there's no natural light on it...hmmmm.....

ahhh - one coat of paint, but you get the picture. vanna...err - i mean Cara shows off our paint job. i'll live with this until i make a decision. any votes?

and since i know what you're thinking (wow, those are really, ummmm...bold colors), remember the wise words of my good friend Will, "when in doubt, go big." can you tell i'm in serious doubt?

HI! I'm leaning towards the rum raisin, Plus, that color would be a perfect excuse to sit and eat Haagen-Dazs rum raisin on a regular basis while staring at your walls. Maria, what do you think? I would imagine that rum raisin rings a bell for you? Good luck Brownie!!! cb

Fall leaf. I leaned red for a while, but its oh so dark on that wall without natural light. So happy fall leaf for me. Avoid dark. Welcoming. Think welcoming. I'll still love you if you go for rum raisin though.
