And the picture below is of the dining room.
Both walls were painted a very pretty shade of robin's egg blue. I toyed with the idea of leaving the color, but decided against it as I'd have to change so many of things I already have to accomodate.
I also thought about removing the wallpaper, but the more I looked at it, the more I liked it. Instead, I decided to paint both walls a creamy white. Although, it's hard to tell in the pictures, it gives these two rooms a very, calm, serene feel. I'll also, keep the furniture various shades of white and decorate and accent with light pastels, such as powder pink and sage green.
I have most of the furnishings I need for the living room, but will be on the lookout for a cream colored dining room table.
