Before and after...and after the after

First painting project in the new place (see the before here)!
...did not go so well, acutally.

Luckily, a fireplace surround only takes about 30 minutes to paint. I chose this light blue color thinking it would pick up some of the lighter colors in the painting.
While it's not a bad color on its own, it really doesn't go with anything else in the house and gave the corner a too-bright, weird poolside look. I tried to convince myself I liked it, but it didn't even last 24 hours.

Paint job #2:

Poppy Seed by Behr (I don't even remember what the other color was called). Be honest: Which one do you like best?

Really love the darker color. It adds some weight to the room, which is very airy and light. I LOVE it! Btw, did you want to hang out this weekend????
