The house page...

Well, Assuming that my RE-agent un-disappears soon, I should be getting the keys to the house later today.

For those of you curious to see what's going on with it I'm going to be putting up pictures and stuff about it here (starting this weekend-ish):

Dragon's Lair (yes I need a less cliche'd name for it)

All the pretty colors....

So does anyone have any suggestions on how to figure out color schemes for a house?

I'm officially tired of white walls and the new house has a few.... ummm... interesting wall colors aside from white that I'd like to get rid of (a pink room is tops of that list ;). I'm going for a look along the lines of classical and refined meets spooky and quirky. I want it to look normal-ish (but stylish) at first glance but with lots of potentially odd/unsettling details thrown into the mix.

Unfortunately most of the home improvement places have fairly generic "pastel", "country", "french", etc... type colors and decors and none of them really do anything for me. Modern sometimes looks interesting, but it's often lacking in a style that I like. I've got a few color ideas, but I was hoping to find someplace(s) that had interesting color schemes etc... that I could crib off of. I'm not so sure that I'm ready to dive into the wonderful world of paint chips just yet :).

Suggestions and comments will be quite welcome...

Finally tracked down the keys to the house.

The seller forgot to leave them with her RE agent and she just called me to arrange a pick up for them. I'm going to head out, get keys and walk through my house :)

Anyone (local) who wants a tour, give me a call in a while. I'm not sure exactly how long I'm going to be there, but I definitely need to measure some stuff and come up with a plan of attack for the million and one things I need to do so I'll probably be there a while...
