Too Soon?

I cannot help it... Young House Love is making me, almost downright forcing me, to repaint our house.

It has been a little over a year & a half since I stormed into Jeff's bachelor pad, paint brush in hand... Well, actually, he did the painting, so it was more like paint swatches in hand...  And we updated a house with entirely white walls to this:

 Note that the guest bedroom actually looks much more lavender than pink
& the 'below chair rail' looks much more dark brown.

Our current color scheme is pretty neutral, with what I would consider relatively traditional choices.  But I'm just dying over the moody colors from Young House Love's new home...

Gray's, dark blue's & crisp white's... oh my!  But is approximately 18 months too soon to break the paint brush back out?  What is the shortest time frame you've repainted in?

  1. I've repainted in about 18 months. If you're ready for a change it's never too soon!
