Question of the Week

QOTW 2-8-13

Well here we are again, another week has passed and it’s Friday. Yahoo!

Was this week good for you? Anything special happen? Mine was one of those “if it can go wrong, it will go wrong” weeks, especially with technology. My power went out, the wireless kept going out, then my site crashed for almost 2 days. TECHNOLOGY *shakes fist*!

Anyway hopefully that’s all over and done with for awhile.

Do you have different colored walls in your house, or do you prefer an all-white canvas?

In my house, nearly every room is a different color. My living room is a deep red on three walls with one bright white wall. My kitchen is white. Actually more like yellow/grey because it needs re-painting badly! The family room is a dark chocolate brown on three walls and white on one. The hallways are bright white because there are no windows, and it’s really dark. My step-daughter’s room is a medium blue on three walls and chocolate brown on one. My office is a robin’s egg/Tiffany blue shade. Our master bedroom is a sage green. Both bathrooms are white and need re-painted white again. They’re also very dark with no windows (just a skylight in our bathroom) so bright white is best. But just white everything is so boring to me, I love color! The only problem is I constantly want to re-paint rooms with different colors…I guess I have to keep that to my nails. ;)

Have a great one!

    I live for color and my house is proof. My kitchen is a bright, sunny yellow. My living room has orange, blue and brown walls that I did paint treatments on so they would look like metal, stone and leather.
    My bedroom has three orange walls and a teal wall. The spare bedroom has two blue walls and a purple wall. The fourth wall has a closet we’re currently revamping. My office is lavender with dark purple trim. I can’t paint my bathroom because it has tiled walls and I haven’t yet decided what to do with my dining room so it’s still white. My half bath is wallpapered and I just haven’t wanted to mess with it even though I hate wallpaper.

    Different colored walls in every room of my house as well. Living room is a tobacco brown. Den is a warm beige that I used to cover up the original knotty pine paneling that was so popular in the 1940′s/1950′s but is so freakin’ dark (not to mention dated looking). My bedroom is hydrangea blue, the dog’s room is a spring green, and my office is a pale beige/peach that I mixed from several left over cans of paint. Wall paper in the kitchen and bathrooms. I imagine when I sell the place I’ll have painters come in and paint everything a uniform cream.

    Color! The bed rooms (not for long though!), office and living room are white, but the bathrooms, rec-room and kitchen are colors!

    Our smallest bathroom actually had red, white & blue wall paper in there (it’s old, and won’t come off the walls!)

    The other two bathrooms, one is peach and the other is pink.

    The rec-room has wallpaper from the 60s so it’s super duper colorful. And I think it’s pretty much stuck to the walls with super glue.

    The kitchen, the walls are a mint green, with the cabinets and edging is several shades darker.

    All of our walls are Eggshell – blah! I keep saying I want to paint them all, but haven’t gotten around to it. I want to paint my son’s room really soon, hopefully that will be the kick start to getting the rest of the house done.

    My old house displayed my love of color… The majority of the walls in the house were white with statement walls… The living room had one bright orange wall with bright blue curtains on the front windows (on one of the white walls). One wall of the dining room was an apple green that carried into the kitchen. One wall in the master bedroom was bright fishbowl blue. The bathroom was a greyed blue on all walls (it somehow worked to balance out the gold/yellow flecked tiles from the 60s… ew.) The basement was a couple different shades of more mellow blues…

    I moved nearly a year ago into a much newer house, so all the walls are a builder’s grade standard beiged out tan-brown color? It’s pretty enough… but ALL THE WALLS in the WHOLE HOUSE?!!?!… I really need more color. >.<

    I prefer different colors but my house currently has all white walls. All white walls feels too “institutional” to me (like a hospital or school or prison).

    Finally this week is over :) I like different colors, each room has its own purpose. Why not have its own personality?

    Haha Kelly – I repaint all the time, too! I get bored. Every room in my house in a different color. The only white spaces are the inside of closets. I really want to repaint my bedroom for spring (right now it’s a dark, burgundy).

    Our house is a crayon box! The kitchen, living room, hallway, and master bedroom are green (all different shades). We have an orange room, which is kind of a multipurpose/office space, a blue and yellow bathroom, and a red secondary bedroom. I keep trying to push to paint the “library” purple, but I haven’t won that argument yet.

    i think a nicely painted neutral colored wall (like khaki, not white) is a good idea and then can be accessorized with wonderful bright art and accessories. i find multiple crazy colored walls to spastic and find it’s easier to buy new or change out accessories and art than to have to paint.

    I lean more pastel, pale greens, aquas (master) and a camellia pinkish with brown undertones in the 3 bedrooms. My bathroom is a smoky amethyst with pale gray porcelain. The guest bath is a really pale green with one medium brownish rose wall behind the mirror (easier on skin tones) and pale green porcelain. LR and kitchen/utility/man 1/2 bath are both light shades it’s hard to define. Light because we live in the great Pacific Northwet. Warm leaning, but not brown or pink for the LR, somewhere in between. The Kitchen+ has plummy tones to compliment the light oak wood. Not a white wall in the house except in the bonus room upstairs. Literally thousands of books shelved up there in wall hung shelves. I can’t bring myself to pull them all down to paint.

    Oh, I wish that my walls were a pistachio green! But I’m only renting the place I’m at now, and the owner won’t allow me to paint the walls, so they remain boring and white. But that’s okay because I’ve hung lots of artwork to jazz up the space. :) They range from my own paintings to pictures of owls, an elephant, and nature. So I’m happy with my space.

    I unfortunately have never lived in anything but apartments my whole “adult” life and those are always boring beige. If I ever have my own place though, it will be all about the color for sure!
