a mini-makeover for the "old wall"

So now that the bathroom is done I felt a few other places (actually quite a few other places) around the house could use some sprucing up.  This wall separates the great room from the kitchen and does not go all the way up to the ceiling.  I have always wanted to paint it a different color than the rest of the room.  Originally I wanted it red but the painter we hired when we first moved in (super high ceilings that we couldn't reach so we hired a painter to put a fresh coat on everything) strongly suggested against it.  So after all this time I settled on latte... yes leftover paint from my mini bathroom remodel (see a few posts down).  I also just added some accents from uppercase living  (of course) ... FAMILY MEMORIES and some swirlies in a nice chocolate brown.  I think it looks nice on what I call my "old wall".  It it far from being finished but on this wall hangs old family photos and heirlooms.  The spoons were passed down to me from my Great-Great Grandmother in Sweden.  I have several other old photos waiting for a proper framing job that will someday hang on this wall as well.
