Have you all ever heard of C.B.I.D Home Decor and Design.  If you haven't, you must check it out.  It is a color consulting, home decorating, and design arts blog that offers FREE professional online design advice to the design challenged....or even to those who are just a little stumped in some particular area, such as myself as of late.

I have been completely frustrated over choosing paint colors for my living room and dining room.  Normally I do not have trouble in this area, but then again we have pretty much always had an open concept home.  You can pretty much throw up any paint color you want in a large open, naturally lit space and it's gonna look great.  Not so much though in a home with small west facing rooms that receive little natural light.


I have had multiple paint swatches stuck to the walls for over a year.  I have bought a few samples and painted poster board sized swatches and hung them on the walls too.  Truly, I have had a major headache over trying to choose a paint color that is fresh, clean, modern, light and bright enough for these rooms.   I truly have been at the point of just surrendering and painting EVERY.LITTLE.THING WHITE.  Enough already, right!!  Okay, I admit I needed help!

A month or so ago I stumbled across C.B.I.D. and I am so glad I did.  I took the chance to send a few photos of my problem rooms and ask for some color consultation.  I wasn't sure if I would get an answer but took the chance anyway.  The answer came today.  Yahoooooo.

I am totally thrilled with the suggestions and advice I received.  She posted my photos and question and then suggested some very nice paint colors.  She also attached photos of beautiful rooms sporting the suggested colors so that I could see what the color looks like in an actual room.  You can check out her post and her suggestions to me HERE.  I know you are just going to love C.B.I.D. and if the truth be known, you might even find yourself asking for some advice of your own.

I will hopefully be picking up some samples of her suggestions this weekend to see if one of the choices will finally put an end to my frustration.

Wish me luck!
