Color Me Happy

I want to repaint the inside of my house. I need a change. The current colors are dark and warm. While I loved this scheme for years, I have decided I need light and airy. I have been in a slump for months now and it is time to brighten things up. I like the colors of this bird's nest. I think it could serve as good inspiration. Scott has offered to help me paint so I better jump on it before he loses the vision! I also love this color scheme below. Sooooo cozy....
I love the shabby chic look. It's elegent and lived in and classy and comfy. It's ruffles and wrinkles at it's best. Throw covers, and slip covers. White, creams and pinks. Maybe a little blue thrown in for good measure.

The picture above is a picture of a studio Scott and I visited called the Hutch.
 It's in La Conner and it's owned by Bunnies By The Bay. It was SO ADORABLE in there. It was mainly creams and blue and so very rustic. I think I will end up with this look. They used a product called Water Color Walls to create a washed, old look.

Anyway...I am ready for change, and paint is one of the quickest ways I know of to create it....and I have a paint coupon that is good for three days.

Any ideas?
