i grew up in a blue house.
in a blue room.
with blue shag carpet.
its the truth.
and I loved it.
my parents home had different colors in it.
the game room was red, white, and blue. (until i was in high school)
my brother's room had red shag carpet (when we moved in).
however, the resounding color choice was BLUE. (it was my grandparents home and that was my grandmas favorite color. it is my mom's favorite color too, so it stayed.)
When i was in college, my mom convinced me to paint my room pink.
She started adding some pretty brown/taupes to her house...my brothers bathroom, her bathroom, her ROOM, the family room, etc.
I loved the change.
When I got married, the home we rented was WHITE everything.
White tile, cabinets, counters, walls (in most of the house).
And i wasn't allowed to touch ANYTHING.
The next few places we lived, were white too, and then i painted with pretty taupes and browns.
We rented, so I ended up having to paint them back white, but it was what saved my sanity back then.
Last year we bought our first home.
the inside is ALL brown.
brown tile, brown cabinets, brown paint (in every single room), brown carpet, bronzed fixtures, brown and black counters, and black appliances.
Now, its been great. But its so not my style. Since then, we've added a cream rug and brown furniture. Brown tv cabinet and side tables, and a brown dining table.
ITS TOO MUCH!!!
i cant handle the brown!! its so blah!
I need to incorporate more color into this home.
The fastest and easiest way is paint.
I'm open to favorite paint color suggestions!!
