Dare to use COLOR??

I think most people shy away from BRIGHT COLORS . Even I hesitate sometimes when I think of painting a wall a bright color. They say colors on walls can be uplifting.... Well, I've had a Ralph Lauren PINK paint stored in my garage for about a year now. Can you tell I'm hesitating to use it? Well, I admit having this blog and placing all these inspiring images has helped my hesitation toward bright colors! I am growing to LOVE colors on walls now and hope to do more of it in the near future. Images from Marie Claire Maison.

  1. I've always been afraid of color as well! But I'm slowly working out of my confort zone. The red kitchen tiles actually look really great because the white breaks up the color. Let us know if you ever break into the pink ralph lauren!

  4. OK dang that's some bold colors but I've got to admit that as much as I dislike that lime green, I'm kind of drawn to it. Love the red ceiling!

  10. In college I painted my hallway lime green, my bathroom neon pink (bad choice because it's impossible to get your make up right!) and splatter painted my room... I LOVE COLOR!! And highly recommend everyone experimenting with it!! To me, it's like cutting your hair.. you should try everything, and if you hate it.. it'll always grow back, or you can just cover it up! :)

  14. I love color - but my problem is that when we first moved in, we slowly painted room by room. I was pregnant. Extremely hormonal. One day I felt like pink, another day barf brown. So now my house is totally mismashed. Just now getting around to repaint rooms.
