Day Twenty Two--Neutral

When we first moved into this house, all of the walls were primed in a beige-y color.  Of course, that didn't meet with my sensibilities, as I wanted to do the whole interior decorating thing that you CAN do when you actually own the property where you live.  So, for the first few years, I did a lot of painting.  At the time it must have been a big thing that I had seen somewhere, so the painting that I did was kind of the 'reverse' of what had been considered 'proper' for so many years:  I painted walls a lighter color and the trim and ceiling a darker shade.  It was kind of cool and I lived with it for many years--and even re-painted some rooms the same way with different colors.  After a while, I realized how much easier it would be if I didn't have to change wall colors every time I got new furniture or accessories for a room, so I changed the way I felt about room colors.  These days, I tend to favor this:


My color of choice is boring and neutral:  Navajo white.

I am a big fan of boring and neutral paint on the walls. Except for my bedroom. That has to be purple!

I still have a few rooms that need to be turned 'neutral,' but I won't do that with ALL of them. Our computer room/hockey den is still painted two shades of bright yellow, which was The Youngest's bedroom before she moved into the 'bigger' room after her sister left. I have every intention of painting this room all white with one wall 'Red Wing' red. It will be quite interesting, I'm sure. :) We'll just have to see when/if this will get done.
