Ironically, the shade worked out to be almost identical to one of the paint chips we were considering for the new house. I think it is too blue for that, but for Ryan's room I think it is perfect. It all looks kind of sparse now that the walls are so empty. I might get a throw rug to add some interest. We are getting close to the end of the list of things we wanted to finish before we put our house on the market. Any day now!
