Addendum to the end of March…

I’m still waiting for the tiles to come in – I got the call that they came in, but when I went to pick them up, they had cancelled the order instead…

Not sure what happened there, but hopefully there’s still a bit of a time buffer…

Which is good because I can’t decide on the paint color.

This was the “temporary” fix – grey and pink – but the grey is much too pale for the soon to be mostly white with a bit o’black (bye bye almond!) tile and fixtures.

The three colors in the top pic are already in the house – I like repeating things for some degree of continuity – but these are all love it or hate it kind of colors.

Well, every color is really I guess…

The mint is in the kitchen.

It was our first, first choice, but the bath is pretty dim, so I’m afraid of it falling a bit dull – it didn’t work when we tried it with the almond fixtures.

The yellow is in the living room.

It’s been my current leaning-to color.

And the dull pink is in the guest room (doesn’t photo well, but it’s pink enough to not be band-aid, but it’s on the earthier side).

This was our choice for a good bit of time, partly because it’s already in there a bit and I could keep the curtain.

Which is another choice…

There’s just the right amount left of this vintage fabric that could work if the tree-like things were on their sides instead of upright – that might drive me nuts, but it works for all colors…

Opinions?

(I should have saved peach for it, but it’s already in the bedroom and half bath…)

    Wrong person to ask here, as I dislike all three colour cards, but good luck with it!

    Maybe you could do a lighter shade of the mint if you like that the best?

    I like the green next to the tree on your curtain. (as it comes off my screen)

    • Yeah, the colors are a little bit different in life – the mint is pretty close to the green on the curtain – but if you’d asked me about these colors a few years ago, I’d hate them too, but I didn’t think I’d end up in a ’50s house!

        I’m glad you don’t mind me being honest, I figured since we’re not going to live together it doesn’t really matter if I love everything about your house 😉

        Yes, it’s that 50’s colour vibe I’m not fond of, but I can totally understand doing something that fits the style of your house.

      • Yeah, they all look like sickly sweet pastels!
        Our last house was in an area that was grey and overcast for most of the time and every wall was a warm variant – peaches, yellows, warm creams, etc., so it’s nice to be able to have some grey and green walls now without adding to the gloom.
