5. My roots were not the only thing to get a fresh coat this week.
We repainted the living room and dining room, Benjamin Moore's Gentle Cream. Yeah, it sounds boring. But after pouring over my fave design mag, the UK's Living, Etc I realized that if fab Brits were using light neutrals on the walls and punching up with eye-popping artwork and furniture, then Gentle Cream is the new black. Admitting you're in the Gentle Cream years was a tough transition, but my house is happier for it.
