I sent two photos of Elizabeth's new magenta room to my friend this morning, and that reminded me I hadn't done any photos here:
Next up is William and Henry's room. I'm not sure if I've ever said why we have the rooms split up into pairs of one older boy and one younger boy---instead of the more intuitive arrangement of Two Older Boys and Two Younger Boys. It's because Rob and William don't get along. Huh. That took less time to explain than I'd expected.
So. Henry wants a blue and orange room, and William wants a blue and green room. They both want intense shades of these colors, and we are having such happy feelings about our orange bathroom and our magenta Elizabeth's room, we're going with that. For the blue: Behr Jamaican Sea, 510B-5. The orange: Behr Orange Spice 250B-5 (left over from our bathroom). The green: Behr Tart Apple 420B-4. Here's a screen shot I took from Behr.com to show you what the colors look like together:
The original plan was to do three walls blue, then split the fourth wall horizontally with green on the top half and orange on the bottom half, so that each boy could have his bunk area in his own color choice. But now Paul is getting all interested in doing something crazier than that, so we'll see.
