Color

Some people avoid color, and prefer neutrals. Other people go color crazy, and hate neutrals. I'm somewhere in the middle. I like neutral pieces with colored accessories. I like color on the walls too. So I guess I lean more toward the color crazy side minus the crazy. But some days (like today) I crave color and sometimes a lot of color can be a good thing. (That sound's pretty Martha-ish).




So do you prefer color or neutrals?

I love the top two! Those greens are amazing. However I'm not sure how long I'd like my home to be super colorful. I always think at least one wall of a fun color or curtain is a good way to insert some color amongst neutrals :)

These are all gorgeous! I especially like the green ones and the first one in the second row. They're so light and open, I like it better than neutrals.

Oh I'm melting for the teal bathroom with the hugeee mirror.

I love colors and neutrals! When it comes to interior decorating I guess you could say my aesthetic is eclectic. I'm starting to gather things for decorating my apartment and there is a whole range of colors and pattern and what not.

My goodness! That cerulean bathroom with the enormous mirror and standalone bath is my dream come true! Definitely some wonderful picks here.

As for me - the more colourful and eclectic the better! However neutrals always do have a place.

I love the blue bathroom with the white accents! I think I like using white walls and then having really bright (like fuchsia) furniture.

I love the punchy pops of color. That blue with the black and white on the bottom left is great!
