I got started on the painting in our entryway and family/game room today, and immeadiately hoped I wouldn't regret the color choice. I hadn't really thought it was too dark until I started putting it on the walls. I think it is just such a change though that it will take a few days to get use to. Once I get the trim painted, and everything hung back on the walls, that will surely help too. The tan definately looks better with the carpet though than the sky blue did, and I love how much warmer the room feels now.
