do you like color?

I love all white, but if not that, I'm starting to come around to the bright side. I'm loving homes with bold colors, but really have no idea where to start. Shoot.

If only JR would let me paint somewhere in our house this color:

Orange Bedroom

Like a burnt mango color. Mmmmm. I love. Against that white. I die.

Do you have color in your house? where? tell me!!! please and please :)

Oh I wish!!! I love bright color BUT our house has wood trim and blah to that! Once we move to our next home made for kids and the like, I'm going to have color everywhere! I especially like bright chartreusey green against black and white accents.

Love that color! I don't know if I would have the guts to paint a room that color, but would love to see how yours turns out!

We have one BRIGHT wall in our dining room. Our house is a "ranch," So the living room, kitchen and dining room are pratically one room.We painted our wall in the dining room RED- not just any red, RUM RUNNER RED ;) It's great- one wall with color, is enough for me :)

Clint's room is a great shade of blue! It's almost the color in the blogger logo... hmm... haha!

Our next baby (one day) will have a yellow room. I'm set on it!

So... I am a first time commenter :) Love your blog and your beautiful family. We have color in our house. We live in Nashville - and color just works here :) I grew up in a beautiful house with lots of white... and color just suits me better! Our living room is a dark grayish brown - we have dark velvet red and cream accents with the occasional pop of turquoise and we love it!

I'm LOVING that burnt orange contrast wall, but then again, my husband is hard core UT fan ;)

Ooh, what a yum color! Perfect from spring to fall. We have a huge wall in our living room that we painted a 'mod color' of slate. It's not bright, necessarily but definitely a statement against the blues and creams we've got surrounding it. I love it...and it made our silver and white Christmas tree pop this year!

I agree, that burnt orange color is beautiful.
We have an Eggplant purple bedroom. It sounds horrible I know but I just love it. Its so elegant and pretty with the white woodwork and white bedspread. I am actually about to do a house post (I was supposed to do weeks ago, oopsy:( But I'm posting it in the next few days. You can see my eggplant room then. Its definitely an acquired taste but I love it.

I think the painters *affectionately* referred to my house as a stoplight. Ha! Love reading your blog - found you through my sorority sis, Abby.
