Coming Home to Fresh Paint

We are back from our trip to see the grandparents and falling back into line is taking a few days. How nice is it to have your parents around to help with your kids? I am so grateful that they want to be so involved and allow me to take a nap. 

While we were away the painters did a few jobs around the house, the first being our family room/kitchen. Previously it was a buttery off white that normally would be fine, but it bugged because the kitchen cabinets were also off white. The fact they matched has bothered me since we moved in. 

Here is what the room was like before...




I chose a cool, calming icy gray (Sherwin Williams Ice Cube). Something much lighter that gives me more options for decorating down the road. This new color has made me like the kitchen cabinets more and just has a fresher look than before. Don't mind my little model...







I am a little annoyed that the painters forgot to paint the ceiling in between the beams. Those are always the things that happen when you are away when the job is getting done. But even Matt says that this new color makes all the other rooms (all that buttery white) need new paint too, so they will be coming for a visit again soon. We also had our room painted, which I will share once a couple more pieces
 come in.

What do you think? Not a huge change and hard to tell in photos, but I love it. 

PS: Need some new throw pillows, any suggestions????
