When we first moved in, we immediately added our personalities to the house, including painting the living room walls orange (Sherwin Williams Robust Orange, to be exact). Since then, we have had countless people compliment us on our color choice. There has been a fair amount of debate on how much bold paint colors can affect a sale, but we don't want anything so easily changeable to stand in the way, so we decided to tone it down a bit...

... or a lot. We couldn't bring ourselves to paint it back the original color (Kwal Desert Fawn) because it was just too bland for us. Instead, we opted for a light color that we feel compliments the white trim nicely (Valspar Montpelier Ashlar Grey).
On a side note, the Valspar Signature Paint + Primer is awesome for covering a bold color. I have heard horror stories about trying to cover red walls, so I expected to do 3 coats. With this paint, we only used 2 coats, and in some places, the second wasn't completely necessary.

What do you think of the change?
