Thanks for such a quick reply. THe foyer is from the front door straight to the kitchen. The LR is on the right side of the foyer. The DR is between the LR and the Kitchen. THe flow is more of a circle. You can see into another room no matter where you stand in any room. Thats why I was thinking more monochromatic instead of a lot of different colors. Scared it would look so chopped up. Appreciate your advice !!!

I had intended to paint my new house in a dark stone gray (Olympic color) which is similar to the color of concrete mortar and is in the gray/beige family but I was going to maintain my baseboard and door trims in white like someone else mentioned, to be safe. I have 10' ceilings on the first floor, so I planned to paint the wall and crown molding dark to emphasize the wall height and then, in most rooms, have a 25% ceiling. It's open concept, so the kitchen cabinets would be the 100% as would all the interior doors. Then I receive the paint bid! Almost $4000 over the painting allowance for the house. Ouch! Now I am considering almost totally monochromatic with 100% for the walls, crown, window and door trims, doors and cabinets and only the ceilings would be 25%. The inside of the front doors will be stained medium dark to match the hardwood floors. I wanted to stain the 7 other exterior doors to the rear opening to a screened porch but at $200/ea decided that I could also paint these in the 100%. I am scared to death to do this even though I saw the Restoration Hardware store in Georgetown painted mono and loved it. I have plenty of daylight and lots of cans and chandeliers to light up the night. Has anyone else done this monochromatic...ditch the white trims.... with gray/beige and have comments or photos to share?

Glad that you like the privacy screen; I wanted it to look like an extension of the garage so copied the pattern from the siding. The wood has weathered to a beautiful soft gray and the plants have grown in so that it is a lovely little oasis of cool green.

Jo, why not try a living hedge of Knock Out Roses? They grow fast and are constantly in bloom. No maintance required other than to water. Not sure of the cost, but my first was less than $10. They will cost less at the end of summer. They come in bright pink, light pink, and pale yellow. Very hardy here in Oklahoma.

I LOVE Randy Thueme's basket weave fencing!! Is this something that must be custom designed or can it be purchased as is for use in a local garden setting? I am desperate to find the perfect fence that will both give me privacy from neighbors' gardens on two sides and yet give an open feeling on the side facing the street (even though my garden is one story above the street level (my home is a high ranch built at the top of a hill on a residential Bayside Queens street) Any ideas would be appreciated!

I love this path. It goes right over a small moving stream with a larger waterfall for the added pleasure of movement and sound.

While I love the color of the cranesbill, I find it irritates my skin, and it does get very leggy by July and also self seeds, so it does need some tending.

Judyrud, this cranesbill does NOT self seed-one of the reasons I love it! Also although it grows wide it is not leggy so much as just all around spreading in habit

Thankfully I have only worked with the ACOE in their northeast districts. I understand the ACOE districts down south tend to be different animals all together.
