Be sure to test a fairly large area of your wall with the paint colors you are selecting from. Be sure to evaluate the paint colors at different times of the day and in different lighting. Don't underestimate the cost of supplies, they add up quickly! Don't be shy to ask for help from family and friends. Don't think you have to stick to one style of furnishings or accessories, if you buy what you love it will work in the room. Be sure to know how big your furnishings can be.
The experience was pretty good because I had been thinking about the colors I wanted in the room for some time. The furnishings were a little more difficult for me because I didn't want it to be "matchy matchy". The painting I chose for over the fireplace was especially difficult because I don't know what type of artwork I like, I just know I like it when I see it. I also didn't realize how expensive it would be to get the scaffolding and all the paint supplies.

I was just wondering what color sofa you selected. I saw you have teenagers. we have younger
children and I love lighter colored couches. However, I am worried about stains. What's been your experience?
