Meanwhile I have been cleaning and sorting and planning. I had a great brainstorm for my basement. We have a great spot for a home office down there and I have a photo of a corner office space that includes desk space for a computer and also lots of file cabinets and shelves. It will be perfect for downstairs! I have been trying to find the photo online, I thought it was in Better Homes & Gardens magazine but I can't find it online.
I also have always wanted to put more bookshelves down there and make sort of a library feel.
We likely will go with a lighter version of the yellow in our living room. So it will be bright and cheerful, and hopefully we will use it!
