Sprucing Up for Spring

I stepped outside of my comfort zone by choosing some new paint colors for our living room and dining room.  For the dining room, I chose a sea foam green/blue.  The hubby painted it over the weekend.
This is a before and after photo.  The yellow was the original color (to the left). We painted both rooms with the yellow and it was/is starting to grate on my nerves.  
I like this much, much better!
And another view of the old with the new.  The living room is getting a soft gray.  Both colors are from Benjamin Moore but I can't recall the names.  One is Opaline, I believe.  Saw them together in an issue of HGTV magazine and they worked very nicely together.

Hoping my hubby gets to the living room this weekend!

How lucky are you to have a hubby that does the painting? Love the new colors!
