Brown Bagging It


So ... anyone who knows me or has been to my home knows that ... where decor/wall color is concerned ... I'm a white kind of gal. As opposed to cream or bone or eggshell. Swiss Coffee* to be exact. And that is exactly what our handy-dandy-man Kevin painted the family room and kitchen. No surprises there.

My home is one of those that is so open that one public area runs into another and so I don't have much choice but to paint them all the same color and I want them all to be ... Swiss Coffee*. The only exception to that rule is the Dining Room. The Dining Room is it's own room and I have always considered painting just that room a different color. I actually didn't know that Kevin the handy-dandy-man was going to be painting the Dining Room in this round of painting, but this morning he announced that if I wanted him to paint it other than SC*, I needed to pick that paint ... today. Pronto. Eeeek.

I can't tell you how proud I am with myself for picking so well under pressure. I actually brought home 3 different colors to sample, but it was immediately clear to me which one it would be.

When I tell you the name of the color, you will say without hesitation, "Oh ... of course ... that makes perfect sense." And that name is ...

Kraft Paper **

I am ecstatic. Giddy. Beyond excited. Thanks for being excited with me.

* I don't drink coffee, but I apparently like it on my walls.

Kraft paper looks more like craft paper than Swiss coffee looks like coffee, but I like them both and am glad SDHM Kevin is making such great (and swift) progress. Congrats on going out on a colored-wall limb. Looks great.

Thanks for keeping the Kev Man busy and I like the Krafty Brown color. I never understood the name of Swiss Coffee but Stephens Vanilla hot chocolate is super good!

Love the colors. I bet Kev is doing a great job! Why is craft spelled with a K?!

If only the Swiss Coffee would also be a scratch and sniff. I would LOVE That! Can't wait to see it when everything is finished! XO

Medium brown wrapping paper (also the paper used in cardboard boxes) is produced by the "kraft" process or method of making paper from wood pulp. The name is derived from the German word "kraft", meaning strength/power. No, I did not know this, but Wikipedia did.
