Okay. I am officially enlisting your help. This is a very important issue, and I expect all of you to exercise your constitutional right to vote on this crucial referendum:
Do we want to go with "Taupestone" (on left) or "Wild Oats" (on right)?
I know. I totally can't decide. The current carpet is white, which is absolutely not an option for us. Its a matter of -- how dark do we want the new carpet to be? Wild Oats (on the lower stair) is darker and more of a golden-brown, while Taupestone (on the higher stair) is more of a grayish neutral tan.
The part that's making this so difficult is how different they look with my different paint colors. Here's the tan in the hallway and staircase (Behr's Pecan Sandie), with Wild Oats on the left this time, and Taupestone on the right.
And here's the upstairs master bedroom color. The carpet choices look so different against this paint -- don't you think?
Steven likes the Wild Oats color, but I don't know if I'm brave enough to buy carpet in that dark of a shade. (It would, however, do an excellent job hiding stains...)
Since you've been with us for the entire painting excursion, here's a glimpse of the finished product. Here's the sitting room: (Remember it used to be pink?)
And here's the dining room. (And no, we still haven't bought any furniture.) Hence, this is what we do with a house full of empty rooms.
I also have to report that our faithful Mac Powerbook has finally bit the dust. Its making a clicking sound, which makes me very sad, because it contains all of our pre-2007 photos, videos, and music. However, there was not much time for grief, because tonight we headed out to the mall...
And made a MasterCard commercial.

This is a clever man, people. A very clever man. :)
