I will just start by saying I am pleased with it. Yes, indeed. Very happy. For once, we put a gray on the walls and got it right the first time, thanks to all of you and my family. Nary a purple tinge to be seen. The color is Granite Boulder by Behr and it’s a perfect gray for the room.  With some green undertones, it works well with the Yolo Leaf 04 in the family room.

I think we are getting close to our palette for these rooms (from Design Seeds).


And….drumroll please….AFTER!

Below are my Matte Stephen’s prints of Chicago and Seattle.  I couldn’t wait to hang them on the new walls.  The green in them ties nicely with the family room and brings it all together.

Of course, backsplash and floors are still on the list, but I taking a moment to enjoy where it is and marvel a bit at where it was. And though it’s not mid-century modern per se, it certainly fits better in the house than it did before.

    Absolutely perfect! I love the color you chose, and the prints definitely do tie everything together beautifully. That shot from the living room into the kitchen is just gorgeous. Great job!

      Thank you both, Dana and Jamie. Finally we hit it right with the first swing!
