Paint Colors For Rooms
« on: July 23, 2019, 09:23:53 PM »
My uncle who's a painter told me to go with any other color but white.  He suggested a shade of light purple, blue, or green but I said no.  I already picked out the wall color I want for my room.  I know it's a boring color, it's a shade of white called New House White.  I would have gone with a bolder color but there's not enough sunlight in the room so I needed a lighter/brighter color.  I earned myself a new nickname: vanilla.  Hahaha.

My son has good taste.  He picked Florida Sunrise, a bright and happy orangey color for his walls.  His room looks really good with two Florida Sunrise walls and two white walls.  My daughter's room is a light gray color.

What are the wall colors you have in your house?

My walls are white. They look and feel cleaner somehow--that is, until the kids draw on them with markers and crayons, ha. But I've always liked white walls. Painted walls make me feel claustrophobic somehow.

I love white walls also.  :)

One is whites and creams.  The other is basically neutrals.

I always thought it would be cool to have different bold colored walls....but then I woke up and realized itís unrealistic for me, since my personality isnít like that......AND it may be harder to sell.   ;D

Yes, I tried really hard to go with bold colors but it's just not me.    Allowing my son to have his Florida Sunrise walls and painting the family room etc light gray was already very brave on my part.  Lol.

It's actually a breakfast nook but I will post a pic.  I think I'm liking it more every day.
