My husband wants to wait until after the 10 month drywall to paint. So that puts us in the vicinity of end of May/beginning of June. The waiting is hard, but at least the walls are not stark white. They are a nice creamy color. Still bland, but not white. So that helps. Thanks Ryan! I can't wait to paint! But here's the kicker, I have NO idea what colors I want!
The Milan's Morning Room is behind a wall and a totally separate room for the most part. It is in NO way open to the rest of the house. The mud room is also connected to the kitchen in much the same fashion. My first delima: Do I paint all three the same color? Or not? I think the Morning Room would be okay a different color. But our mudroom has a little hall way that attaches it to the kitchen. So would those all be the same the color as the kitchen? If the Mudroom is a separate color, what color to we do the little hall way? the kitchen color or the the mudroom color? (yes, I over think things sometimes).
I am leaning toward the kitchen, hall, and mudroom being all the same color. At least for now.
The downstairs bath is going to be one of 2 colors that I've narrowed it down too. =)
I'm lost for kitchen color though. TOTALLY. I have three different thoughts in my head. And my DH (darling husband) doesn't even want to begin help narrowing down anything yet. =/ But the color of the kitchen will decide the color of the den and morning room. So it's kinda a big deal. You know?
We have support beam that runs across the den. What in the world do we do when it's time to paint that? I thought about just doing an accent wall on the back wall of the den. Between the support the beams and our speakers for surround sound, it may be best. But DH wants to paint all the walls. *face palm* I think WW III is going to start over paint at my house. lol
I know I want my dining room a nice dark blue. Or maybe a light gray? *bangs head against wall* I'm going to wait on this one. I want at least a chair rail up first. Maybe some wainscoting. Then I'll decide.
My two eldest girls know what colors they want their rooms. So that's good. Again, our bedroom is another story.
Milan Owners: How are you deciding to paint? I need some ideas as far as the kitchen/den/mudroom.
If you aren't a Milan Owner, still feel free to weigh in as well. =)

You can see the placement of the bar wall here too, behind the couch
