We were lucky enough to be able to remodel our kitchen about 9 years ago to get the kitchen of our dreams. I still love it today. My favorite parts are the large island and that it is part of the great room.
We decided it was time to redo our office, it had been almost 4 years and the pumpkin orange colored walls were not working for me any longer. When I painted it that color I loved it, but the room gets very little natural light and is small room so the pumpkin orange made the walls feel like they were closing in on you when you spent much time in there. I was more than ready for a change. To brighten it up and update the space a bit we changed the wall color to a blue gray color. We used Behr paint from Home Depot in light french gray, added new window treatments and rug from Target. We also found an awesome filing cabinet at Salvation Army that fit the space perfectly.
If you would like to see the before here is the blog post from the last time I redid the room. Office Before
