How fragile must one be if a color upsets them? I agree that it's all in one's personality.
Apricot sounds nice too. Celtic Linen is alright, but I would prefer it to be just a little darker brown. I'm more adverse to the lighter tans and off whites, for some reason. I think lighter colors work better in the green spectrum (maybe some sponged over darker green (that's how my dining room is and it looks nice) and the orange spectrum, such as apricot, like this:

For reds and tans, I like them to be darker.
I'm afraid if I paint my house anytime soon my kids will just wreck it. Maybe in a few years if we don't move. I'd like more land and privacy.
Love that shade of apricot!
I have found that the darker tans work best if you have a very open floor plan with lots of light and flow from room to room. Or, you may end up with a drab room.
Another cool thing about bright, daring colors is you don't have to load your wall up with art just for the sake of having the room decorated. I won't hang something on my wall unless I love it, so some of my walls are simply blank until I can find (and afford) the art I want, or the mirror that's just right for that space. Meanwhile, the color is actually the art, particularly if you have a nice ceiling trim and baseboard painted in a lighter shade!
I've never done sponge painting.

Howdy Barbi! I find red stimulating. If I had my druthers, the washer/dryer would be red. Actually, I do have a choice in the future. I fired my husband - his replacement of appliances leave much to be desired by the end user. That is usually me!
There's so much soothing neutral in my house, that it's beginning to resemble a retirement home. Enough, I say! Time to give the house a spark. Who am I kidding. Even the replacement furniture is going to be a yawn. It will be comfortable.{yawn} Is anyone else feeling sleepy?
Golden Girls has been on the TV Land channel the past few nights. I really loved them. I gave Cov a link on her birthday to one of my favorites - Mr. Haha. Hope I catch it if they air it.
Oh my! 3333 - that's like the best hand ever! I'll wager Ricky's wallet again.
{Waves to Perse!}
Actually, my brother and his wife own a red washer and dryer - the new front loading types. Or at least, they're new to me.
I love the Golden Girls so much that I was gifted with the set. My daughter and I watch it together whenever we can. We love it. It's interesting, however, to listen to what the younger generation has to say about that show - how unrealistic it was. Like, I heard my 23-year-old niece say, "Even Sophia got laid!" lol...but heck, it's only television.
I do remember the Mr. Haha episode!

There is ONE room that begs to be painted. Unfortunately, it's the room that's loaded with things that may someday be useful... You would NOT believe the crappola. Boggles my mind, and some of it, I swear, I've never seen before in my life.
I always wanted to paint a room red. I know, tacky. But I love the color red. Maybe just one wall? Accent! Someone please say yes, go for it, Junket. Or talk me down. It's clear that I'm on the verge of losing what's left of my mind.
I've got a picture to show you that will make you change your mind on that. It'll take me a while to get it ready, but you will never want red again!

Yep! It's paint, not wall paper. Although and it's just me, I think a textured wall paper in say a Dining Room, can be very pretty. I've only helped hang once or twice in my life. Painting, I'm fairly adept - a paper hanger, not so much. I had to be instructed carefully.:-)
Please tell me it doesn't look like the 3 Stooges hung it?

Lol!

LOL! Thanks, I think, KP. Actually, don't know of a Hobby Lobby nearby - wasn't there some sort of dispute with them recently?
A wood or vine wreath is not a bad idea. Had one (vine) style that cost a bit and looked pretty good for the first year. The second year there was less of it and by the third year it was a mere shadow of its former self. Evidently birds were taking it apart piece by piece for their nests? That's the theory - I was not an eye witness - hearsay.
I cannot begin to imagine what my neighbors would do to me if I hung a Bud sign. Probably show up with torches/pitchforks, report me for promoting underage drinking, or have me cited for blight.
:D
Hobby Lobby protested the contraception mandate in President Obama's healthcare law. The Green family, who owns Hobby Lobby, is very religious and are planning to open a Bible Museum in Washington DC in 2016.

"The Green Collection, which will be showcased at the museum in Washington, has become the world's largest private collection of rare biblical texts and artifacts since Green's first purchase in November 2009.

"We didn't buy them because we're collectors; we bought them because we wanted to tell the Bible story," Green said, reflecting a sense of ministry from more than 25 years of placing God first in the family business."

They are never opened on Sunday in order to allow their 22,000 employees and customers more time for worship and family. I like the place because of the 40% off coupon every week in the local paper and their great selection of models and trains. It's a great place to find gifts for girlfriends too. It makes them think you're sensitive or something.
