Yellow. This past weekend we painted our new bedroom and it made me think about when I was ten and how yellow was my favorite color. I had the only (mismatched) yellow plate that the family knew was ‘my’ plate. I cried when it got broke one day when I was doing dishes. For years I’ve loved yellow. I still do, even though green and burgundy top it these days. 🙂
I always wanted a sunny yellow kitchen when I got my own house. That never seemed to happen in the other homes we’ve owned, until we bought this house four years ago. The whole house is pale, boiled-egg yolk, yellow inside, except for the three bedrooms which were pink, burnt orange and purple. The purple is the only one still that color and it will get a new green coat soon, as my office. The pink is Andee’s room and now in her favorite color blue as of two summers ago, and the burnt orange was painted a lovely beige over this past weekend with a clean white trim. I’m thinking about some deco-painting in there to break up the beige, since I’m a fan of color and hubby is not. 😀
The living room will be beige one day, with a pale green accent wall or wainscoat all round, I haven’t decided which yet. Oh, and the bathrooms are white, not yellow. The downstairs one will be aqua blue and golden sand to accentuate my ‘fish’ theme, not sure what we’ll do with the upstairs one yet, but probably the generic beige with white trim too. I might consider leaving yellow in the kitchen, but a brighter shade and only in moderation to bring out the red already there. Not the whole room, I’ve had my fill of yellow these last four years! LOL
All in all, I can’t wait to get to painting the rooms in colors that make me happy!
What do you prefer for your home, color or not? Which makes you happy?
Join me for tomorrow for the letter Z, which will be a lot more exciting, I hope.
Hint: Andee had her class end of the year field trip yesterday. 😉
