Carpet/ Appliances in...

Alright- There's fast and there is fast- but lately I'm feeling like this is Extreme Makeover, Home Edition and I'm not ready to move in yet! One month ago my walls were just sheet-rocked, and now carpet is in! You're looking at the finished front elevation with a lot of paint touch-up which will be done before we close. All in all, it has turned out just fine. I'm very particular and hard to please, but it'll be a good little home for a few years, at least.

Here, we are looking at some close-up photos of my recently installed range and microwave. I can critique my own color-choosing weaknesses by commenting that I need more contrast. The cabinets, tile and carpet are all light browns. But hey, I figure 1- I'm neutral with the colors and 2- WHAT DO YOU EXPECT FROM A GUY??? I think a woman's touch will spice things up with some good paint color and decorating saavy.

Lastly, a shot towards my stairs. I will paint the stair rails a darker, Mahogany color to complement the door better, and again, I will paint the walls some color that someone talented, with good color sense will probably recommend. As much as I wanted much darker carpet, I think this is the better route- it keeps things a little brighter and workable.
Any Ideas for wall color? Pulease- I need all the help I can get! Go to my photo album to see a few more pictures where you can blow them up to full size.
