We're Painted

There is yellow paint all over the inside of my house. And I love it! The husband doesn't love it as much, but he never has shared my designer tastes.... Today we went to the doctor's office, and my color was on the main wall, so I take that as having some really great style sense. Oh how I wish I could please my husband with paint colors, but unless I live in a white box it will never happen. And I just can't do white.

Our house is nearing completion. After the paint, I just need a bathroom painted and a kitchen installed. Speaking of bathrooms, I don't know what to paint the main bath. I was in a cafe once that had a blue (kind of turquoise, kind of grayish baby blue) and dark, chocolate brown and it looked awesome! I know my description probably does not do it justice, but I loved the combo. I'm also thinking of a smoky purplish/grayish purple color. Wish I could be more specific. Any suggestions????

We're moving out of our current house (and have been) this weekend. Yippee! Man do we ever have a bunch of junk.

I miss my yellow kitchen that I had in my old house. I love yellow, and I can't wait to see what you've done with your new place. I think you have great taste in colors/decorating ideas, I'm sure that whatever you choose will be fabulous!

I agree with Dawn---you have agreat decorator taste. And I love me some yellow!!

I like the turquoise/brown combo you mentioned---at least the picture I get in my head from your description---I think it would have a spa-like quality.

There is NO good reason for it...but I am VERY sad today. I Miss you. I know, I Know. You were here a week ago and I didn't see you then then. But you feel more gone to me now. I don't like it. I need NEED a Delena Date. And I need it soon. On a side note, I am VERY happy for you. Not the least bit jealous (too small to measure with the naked eye Really...) I hope you got to sleep in your new home. I pray that you were snuggled warm with your Handsome man. I wish you years of Sunshine and Sweet Spring Showers and the rustling of Wind thru your Beautiful Trees. I Love you Delena. Talk to you Soon!
