Colour Confusion






This painting thing is kind of overwhelming. I'm not even doing any work, but choosing these colours is quite the workout. I thought I had it down. Summer Lime in the dining room/living room and butter in the kitchen, but I went to look at it today and for one it seems that they are both the same colour. I am quite happy with the two bedrooms upstairs which are an avocado green and a sort of sky blue. (background for a future castle to be painted by my friend Aimee after she gives birth to her third child. I know Dusty might be waiting a while) So, do I put another coat of summer lime on only to decide that it's too limey or do I chicken out and pick something more subdued. I've never been like this before. I've always painted our places orange and bright green and fuschias. Is this what happens at middle age. Have I become a neutral lover? Help? Anybody out there have some advice. I know there are hungry children in the world. This is ridiculous. I better start making hats again. Maybe I have too much time on my hands.

Maybe we second-guess ourselves more when we are older? I LOVE your colors! Paint is paint, they make more of it. It's like changing out a feather or a flower on a hat (well, in theory, anyway). Live with it for a while, see how it feels. Oh, what our husbands put up with, huh? My current deliberation has been over what gas range to chose, and my husband is losing patience (well, it HAS been three months...)

Hey there!
How's it going?
Hope you all are having a wonderful winter (I've always hated nova scotia winters...)!
Are you still living in the same house? Just wondering because of the painting subject and all...

i like the colors you chose, so mild in the eyes. and yes, great thing bout paints is that they are handy. you can always have the colors of your house changed when you get tired of them.
