Don't be scare.......


......of a little color! No one likes dull, sad walls!

Look how pretty!

Greens and blues are good bedroom colors.
They're calming and happy all at once!

I'll compromise with a lack of color in the kitchen. White cabinets look clean and bright!
And perfect with stainless steel appliances, don't you think ;)

If you agree PLEASE comment :)
And if you have any bright ideas please let me know!

Greens and blues are very serene and remind me of the beach...I especially love how it makes white look so crisp.
I'm in love with that first photo...the colour is gorgeous :)

100% agreed! i wish we could paint one or some of the walls in our loft here...or maybe the bathroom! there's SO much white

I love colors on the walls. AND green and blues are my favorites! we are painting our kitchen next...and I think i am going to do a burnt orange!!!

I have red and orange walls on my mail floor and my bathroom is turquoise! I'm not afraid of the bright colors. :D

My husband did talk me out of painting our bedroom bright, but I forgive him.

We painted our daughter's room green...like a forest glade. I love color, but our house is mostly all white as it is a 'safe' color the previous owners painted it to sell it and we just haven't gotten to it all. I think white cabinets work fine, especially with fun countertops. Our last house had green-tealish counters with white cabinets. I loved them. Everyone who visited wanted to know when we were going to replace them. Ha!

I totally agree with white kitchens. :)

That first kitchen is stunning!

My bedroom is green (same green as the third picture on three walls with an accent wall of a darker pea green) and I LOVE IT. Makes me feel good every time I go in there. :)

I LOVE bright walls!! That bright green room is wicked cute!
I would love to paint my room hot pink or mustard yellow....or even a dreamscicle orange.
I want a house where I can have a room in every color. :]

Lisa said...

I love green, especially the second green bedroom. I really just want that whole room!

Kjirsten said...

I love color!!! I just wish I had enough courage to paint bright colors!! We will some day when we have some money to decorate the way we want. Love the pics!! We have white cabinets in the kitchen. Yes it does look nice but my husband is a mechanic and I have three children...they are hard to keep white!!

my son's room is a bold "grasshopper green," and i love it because it's a color that goes really well with pretty much every other bright color. so all his obnoxious plastic kids toys match.

i love the idea of colorful walls, but i find it hard to commit to a theme. so, i think i'm going to paint our pancake yellow apartment walls white, but add lots of pops of color. it's kind of a shame because my landlord is VERY open to us painting any way we want, but i just can't decide on a color.

my whole house is full of color, I have an orange wall, two green walls, a wall with pink bubbles, a yellow wall with white trees and a striped wall all in my kitchen, dining area and living room. Before we moved in we painted. When I go to a home and the walls are white and bare, I get nervous. "Do I really want to be friends with these people?" I find myself asking. (: The first room is amazing. Get the paint out girl and get crackin'!

I love that Kitchen! It's so clean and sparkly ;) Minty blues and greens are always a nice comfort to come home to!

if i could pant my walls, there would be tons of blues and greens--they're my fave.

and i love white in kitchens--allows for more colorful accents :).

eef said...

I LOVE bright colored walls! I can't wait to have my own place so I can paint EVERYTHING!

Henk said...

Dream kitchen!!! I love the last 2, they super awesome!

{eleise} said...

Love those all! Can I live there?! =)

-heather- said...

my kitchen is that exact shade of blue and I LOOOOVE it! we have white cabinets and stainless steel appliances too.
love this post!

Little Gamine said...

I totally agree! My bedroom walls are mossy green (neon, depending on which lights I use) and my decor is black and white. I love the contrast between the black and white against the green! White walls drive me crazy. Reminds of an asylum.

I LOVE white in kitchens and bathrooms. That way you can see how clean and fresh everything is! Plus, that leaves you open to any possibility for wall colors. On bedrooms, you are so right about the greens and blues, they are calming and relaxing. I also find green inspirational. However, my current color trend that I'm thinking of painting my bedroom is orange. Like not a pumpkin orange, but a pretty orange. lol. If you can imagine such a thing.
