Toasted Almond

After staining our deck we thought it was the perfect time to experiment with some exterior paint colors. We had Lowes mix up a gallon of Toasted Almond and to our delight were quite pleased with the outcome.

Pottery Barn Color Swatch

{Sofa Swatches}
Now that we’ve started furnishing the living room ~ seen here ~ it’s time for us to decide on a sofa. We want to keep with the neutral palette, allowing us to spice things up with pillows and accessories. The hard part?...picking the color!

West Elm Sweep Armchair

{West Elm Sweep Armchair}
After much deliberation we chose these sleek, but comfy, armchairs for our living room. We’re loving their neutral color and like that they give texture to a currently bare living space!
