Anna's "After After" Paint Job

If there's anything we love here at Apartment Therapy it is hearing about our readers' projects. Anna wrote in awhile ago first to post a question about which colour to paint her rental home and readers chimed in with plenty of good advice. We then followed again with an "after", a subtle Chantilly Lace. Anna's space has come back with a new set of colours, this time the choice of her new tenants. Tell us what you think about this new shade the house has taken on.

The space before it was painted.

Anna writes: Since I know AT readers, including me, love "After" pictures and also love paint color discussions - and if it's not total overkill - I thought I would share my "After After" pictures too! Our new tenants asked for permission to paint, and since they are wonderful and agreed to paint it back when they vacate, I couldn't say no. They chose a camel color for the living room and dining room (Behr "Oat Straw") and pale gray for the bedroom (Behr "Dolphin Fin"). It's not my style, but I definitely can appreciate that the camel color creates a warmer, cozier feeling, and I also appreciate how well it photographs (the trim really pops!). Thanks again to the AT readers for the help!
