Hi everyone,

Well now that I have new windows, I was thinking about getting the inside of my house painted....it hasn't been done since the 80's. I have a 50's house, 3 br's, 2 baths, a great room with fantastic new casement windows and a galley kitchen that currently is that (shudder)awful Avocado green and Harvest gold.

Extra details, currently there is a light blue wall to wall carpet in great room and hallways and Master bedroom. Upstairs bathroom has burgundy and white tiles and downstairs bathroom has pink, yes pink and white tiles.

My first thought was to paint everything white/off white and keep it simple but thought I'd ask for ideas. I did get color charts from Valspar and Benjamin Moore paints and I am overwhelmed with the choices.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

The galley kitchen needs help bad.....the wall cabinets are that green color and the below counter cabinets are the gold......I want to make the kitchen look bigger in some way and brighten it up.

Also for the bedroom, I'm looking for a soothing,relaxing color.

Color me lost. :)
