We spent most of the day yesterday painting the kitchen and dinning room. By "we" I mean Kevin and my mom (thanks guys!). I adore the color! But am now overly paranoid that everyone else will hate it.
Is it bold. Yes.
Is that fitting of my personality and how I like to decorate. Yes.
So why worry now?
The color is called Surfer by Behr. Reminiscent of this color. Episode 614 photo #28. And it also looks a lot like this
We are pairing it with black and white accents which I think will bring everything all together.
I feel a bit protective of this color. Slightly like I do my children's names. My children have very unique names and therefore receive many different reactions when people first hear them. I like this color. It's cheery and it's unique but classy at the same time. But I am realistic in the fact that not everyone will be affected by it as I am.
Why is it that the only bold color allowed on the walls of a kitchen is red? Can't we be bold in the kitchen beyond red?
Is it really that scandalous?
Gasp! Her kitchen is making a statement in a non-reddish fashion. Quick, hurry, let's mock her taste in design.
I'm just not a neutral color kind of gal. Not that I mind neutrals. I am quite fond of them, but when color can be used I tend to take advantage of that.
Thankfully, Kevin has the same opinion as me. Love him for that! I guess I can only hope my home feels inviting to all despite my lack of tradition on the walls.
