The Color Files part 1

So, as I mentioned yesterday, I got an apartment! Hip hip hooray! I'm not exactly sure when I'm moving in because the landlord is a crazy hoarder and nothing can be easy in my life. But I am hoping for next week. I am so very excited. And this means many more decor-themed posts are headed your way because obsessing over apartment stuff is my favorite past time. As you saw yesterday, the entire apartment is painted lavender and it is pretty frightening. So, I've started to think about paint colors. I'll have to move quickly because I want to get it painted before I move in. But I'm not a-paint-a patch-on-the-wall and sit with it for a week kind of girl anyways. I find a color I like and I go with it. Kind of an impulsive lady I suppose.

I absolutely adored the color in my old living room (minty green/aqua which is unofficially my signature color), so why fix it if it ain't broke? I'm going to stay in the same color family for the living room. Perhaps this...

Which looks like this...Swoon. Love. Perfection.

And, I have recently decided I want a light and airy grey bedroom with bright bedding (coral I think but I'm not sure, maybe lime green, stay tuned). But grey paint is tricky (or so I have heard) so I'll have to be careful here. This is kind of what I'm going for:

Which I hope looks a little like this...

Now there's also the bathroom to contend with. But I want to get back in and re-check out the bathroom before choosing a color. I do have a brand new bright yellow bath mat that I love so whatever color I do decide on it needs to work with this lovely item. Any thoughts?
