Ok, so this weekend we can paint a wall. (and should to protect said drywall) This means I must choose a color.
My living room is Kilz “Bellissima”. It’s a lovely straw/butter color that is clearly yellow but not obnoxiously so. I love it. I want to continue to love it. For the curious, here it is
I had been assuming I’d probably continue with another yellow. Something a little brighter and bolder but nothing wild. Now I’m not so sure. I am becoming afraid that I will get thoroughly sick of yellow. This would not be good. Not good at all. My other color options are…
White I don’t want white. After all, the cabinets will be white. That’s just really a LOT of white. No thank you. So, here is my curtain *cough* fabric. *Sputter* (I can never just use normal stuff can I? Oy)
That blue? Not happening. I don’t want that blue. I could go for a more medium-pale blue I suppose. I don’t think I want to. This leaves greens (almost impossible to find some that I like but I don’t think I’ve exhaused the green options) and reds. I’m kind of afraid of red. What if I hate it? I don’t want to paint for hours and then paint hours again to get rid of the first set of hours hard work. Seems like an exercise in futility. So, your vote? Do I want…
Yellow? (Even though I already have it and have a feeling I might be thoroughly sick of it in a few months)
Blue? (A medium-pale variety. Definitely a “safe” option. Would it look good from the yellow living room?)
Green? (My favorite color and yet the only one I haven’t found a shade that I like for this room.)
Red? (A bold warm option that has plan appeal but is a disaster unless it’s perfect!) Please vote here. And tell me why!
I have decided I have to scrap my fabric. As much as I LOVE THAT FABRIC… I won’t love anything I put with it which means I’ll hate the room. Not what I want in my brand new kitchen.
So, if you know of any Kitcheny fabrics that work with cobalt accessories, in a 1940’s/1950’s feel, please post what it is and where I can find it.
I’m off to mourn.
P.S. The funny thing is that the colors are obviously not showing up right on some monitors. That is a RED. Not an orangy color at all. The blue is BLUE. The Green is GREEN (with a pale version alongside) and a primary yellow. The colors are very vibrant.
