Oooh, I especially like the Fuzzy Mitten and Green Fern, being a "green" person. :-)

All the shades are loving and soothing/calming, go well together.

Mariette VandenMunckhof-Vedder said...

Dearest Catherine,
What a job you've undertaken. Banjo looks kind of pitiful... asking: 'When is this over with?'
Love those color names; takes quite some imagination for inventing them!
Hugs,
Mariette

Beautiful colors ... Banjo may need a long nap soon.

Tammy said...

Fabulous colors!!! The flooring is gorgeous as well! I admire your motivation as I'm only motivated to tackle one room (per year, haha)! Can't wait to see the finished rooms!

BeadedTail said...

Very pretty colors and floor! Bet Banjo helped picked them out too! He's such a good helper!

Diane Cayton-Hakey said...

Mom loves your new floor. We have the original oak floors in our 101-year-old house. Minus the white, we have similar colors in our house to all you have selected. Mom thinks she would feel right at home at your house. Purrs and hugs, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

Love the colours! I almost used Fuzzy Mitten on my trim, too. Who can resist the name!

I do love a fresh coat of paint. It makes everything look brand new and with the new flooring, it'll look fantastic when it's all done.

Laurie said...

I love your colors Catherine, and what better helper is there than Banjo! I've been painting my kitchen, started in April and still haven't finished! You have me beat for sure.

Betsy Adams said...

Wow---love your colors... Awesome. You are gonna be so pleased once it's all said and done. AND--I'll bet that Banjo will be glad when things are back to normal. ha

Hugs,
Betsy

Pam said...

I love, love, love all your choices!

Tamago said...

I do love the naming of colors very much! You picked very lovely colors for your home. Can't wait to see the finished look! Banjo seems to be helping you a lot :-) Has he helped painting with his paws yet? Hehehe.

Lin said...

ooooh, I LOVE those colors!

You are certainly doing a LOT of painting! Are you re-doing the entire house??? :O

Tails from the Foster Kittens said...

Didn't I tell you that the name of the paint very well could make you smile :)

Eileen said...

Gorgeous colors, but OMG what a lot of work! I think Banjo is hoping life gets back to normal soon.

I'm sure you do too ;)

SweetMarie said...

Banjo is working hard looking so darn cute! I love the colors and their names.:)

Our photos said...

The photo with Banjo is Lovely!

Michael Manning said...

Catherine: This brought back memories of rebuilding my parents house. The painting alone was exhausting, what with the tape and bed and plaster, kill coat and then paint! I can tell, however, that your project will be awesome when completed (with Banjo supervising...quietly)...:)

Crafting Queen said...

Just reading it makes me tired! lol Love your little helper, good boy Banjo. Lots of hugs. Anesha and Skipper. :)

Fisher and Staff said...

Very classy! Great colors and the floor is fantastic. You must be a decorator (or your should be).

Nancy said...

Love those colors and the flooring. Well done you guys!

Forever Foster said...

You're a helpful dude, Banjo. Good job!
The colours are lovely. We would probably have chosen Fuzzy Mitten on name alone! :)

Sylvia said...

You've done a great job already, Catherine !
