The odd thing about interior design
is that I love it, but I have no great
urge to make spectacular changes
to our house every few months.
And I know that there are people who
can, and do this all the time.

We have to make some changes when the weather cools, because it’s time to get rid of the dark denim blue hallway, and the lavender living room. Oh and the flesh eating pink bathroom walls, they are going out the door.
Soon, just as soon as we can pick some colors.
Right, I know you’ve heard me say this before, but this time it’s true.
Seriously, I’ve even gone out and picked color chips, and if that’s not a lesson in frustration, what is.
Did you know that there are 16.78 million colors of cream? Bisque, beige, cream, cottage white, flower white, sea salt, oatmeal, clotted cream, all this talk of color is making me hungry.
And then there is the “greige’s”, the grey/beige combo that is all the rage, did you even know that colors can be all the rage?
Oh and don’t forget the new upcoming color trends for 2013, whew, how much more creams do I need?
Apparently 12.780 million choices.
Sure I am exaggerating, there are only about, oh a million cream tones to choose from, and some will be the “it” cream color for next year, and some will be has beens….oh the pressure.
I just want a color that we can live with, a open arms, come on in and put your feet up kind of warm light reflecting color. One of those I feel so at home with this choice that is going to cost around $100 per room in paint alone, kind of color.
We have a lot of rooms to paint and I want to make sure we pick the right colors. After all if I make the wrong choice, I am going to have to live with it for a long time. Right now the contenders are all hanging onto the wall with double sided tape, some falling by the wayside as the tape comes undone. Maybe that’s how I should choose, the one left hanging is “THE COLOR.”
Survival of the fittest, in color chips.
