      Today I inspected a house and each room was painted an odd color, I thought it was odd for inside of a house. Bright blue, Gray and flat sage green but a little brighter than that green. most with brown door facings. I had just painted the whole house an off white.

      What do you prefer white or bright colors?

      I decidedly don’t like white. It is almost impossible to keep it clean. I do like most nice pastels, though.

        I like bright colors but there is something strange about them and I cannot put my finger on it. I adore white because I can go crazy with everything else in colors.

        @rextrulove….I agree, white is too clinical for my taste! I too prefer off white, warm earth tones and pastels 🙂

      hard to maintain if you have white paint at home so I’d rather bright colors here like light blue.

      NB for the outside, I prefer one solid colour like off white.

        I have always liked a white house with black trim. I think its classic.

      I have never thought of those color combinations, sounds very pretty.

      @andriaperry – I love brown with other colors. It’s the new black. 🙂 I especially love brown and robin’s egg blue. I went with brown and blue in my bedroom. I agree that black and white are classic. My last house was white with black shutters. When 3/4 of the new houses were tan, mine was plain ole white with black shutters. It never goes out. Someday people are going to wonder why there are so many tan houses. I already wonder that. LOL

      Actually this house is tan and was this color when I moved in. I wont paint it yet but the trim is in need of refreshing so I am thinking dark brown, but its outside. I think I seen the pale blueish greenish and brown mix in the magazines.
