So... here are the finished hallway, livingroom, kitchen and blinds.
Forgive the mess. It's too dark to take pictures at night and the girls were pulling things out as fast as I could put them away.

The lavendar looks like a lighter blue in some lights.
It's brighter in there then I've ever seen that room now! And yes, my house is one big open room opening into another big open room.
