[ colour my world? ]

MOST OF THE walls in my home are neutral tones but colour really is everywhere. My previous homes have had colour on the walls and I've gradually evolved to a softer, more muted palette. But I couldn't help but admire these rooms that really take colour to the max. I think using a lot of white really helps to tame the brightness. Could you go this bright?

I am a big fan of colour too! I wish I had more rooms in our house, just so I could decorate them! ;)

When I was in high school every wall of my room was a different bright color... and even the people that were skeptical at the idea... agreed that it looked great.

Currently we rent a house and I'm stuck with these ugly brown-grey walls. blech.

I'm not as out there with color as I was in high school, but when I get my own walls again - some of them will totally be bright.

Love color! I am in the process of trying to decide what colors to paint our walls when I get home. I love bold but nervous about how it will work. These pictures are giving me new inspiration!

I LOVE color on my walls. My computer room is a mango color; our bathroom is a bright ocean blue, and part of my kitchen is lipstick red. Hooray for color!

The purple and the blue tie for my favorite!

Be brave and bold young painter!

I could do any of these, but especially the green or the purple! I love brights! One of my best apartments ever had deep red walls and a purple velvet slipcovered sofa, it was to die for! XO!

I definitely could go that bright, actually my room is about the same color as the fourth picture! I love the purple one :)

French Revelation said...

I definitely could! There's not one white wall in our house. I have bright colours everywhere.
