Right now the place is still scattered enough that the ones on Zillow are about as good as any we might take, at least for another few days/week or two. If you can swing by at some point feel free though.

I'm honestly not sure how long it'll be until we really get everything sorted. Knowing us, probably just a couple of weeks before things are in pretty decent shape. But we're planning on just sort of living in it as-is over most of the winter, figuring out what we want/need from that, and then with that knowledge making decisions on paint colors and new furniture and stuff in the spring and summer, probably.
Sounds like a solid plan. We (as you know) were fortunate to move into a house that the previous owners had restored pretty well. They'd even hired an interior decorator that helped with color schemes, carpeting/flooring decisions, etc. We have no plans to change any of those basic things. We do still have to re-do the shower stall (our own fault) and move the laundry from the dungeon basement onto the second floor. I mean, we have a freakin' MAID'S ROOM up there across from our bedroom. Why haven't we put the washer and dryer up there yet? It's been ten years!
My livingroom is yellow as well tbh.

It was white/cream... but 13 years of 40 a day with do that though
Somewhat ironic that their purple patch ended just as they were starting on the office
I like most of the colors (except the office I'm in now, which is two different shades of purple), but the missus gets a pretty huge vote share on that. But the living room is a happy shade of yellow, dining room is a muted green, and the library/whatever it ends up being is kind of brownish gold. Whoever chose the colors did a pretty good job. Again, purple excepted.

I always hate when paint goes sour. Just ruins the flavor, IMO.
