I an new here to Home Love stories but am so excited to be here. Do you see the beautiful home above? In one month it will be our very first home and I can’t be more excited. However, since it is 2,100 miles away it will be quite the adventure getting there especially with five kids. My husband accepted a new job opportunity so we are relocating far away. I am so thrilled that we will have our own home and can roll up our sleeves and get to work making it ours. We are purchasing it from a very nice older couple who are trying to retire in Florida. This was their second home and it does have a unique style right now including floral wallpaper and doll wallpaper borders. I have so many lovely ideas and just can’t wait.
Does anyone have any experience with the best paint colors to go with oak? There are beautiful Amish made fireplaces and a stairwell banister that I want to leave as is. I am thinking perhaps a soft sage green for the entry with the banister. Do any of you know what undertones would be best to avoid?
