Oh My, What Colors!

I love this pink bedroom, although pink isn't my color and I should never wear it. There are some who believe that you should never decorate your house or other personal spaces in colors that aren't you...I tend to agree with that. I'm an autumn, and there are no pinks in the autumn color spectrum! But I still appreciate the color pink, and I think this bedroom is sweet and charming. They actually refer to the color as lilac. Pretty.

Then there's this eye-poppingly fresh color palette. Spring pinks and greens matched up with a tropical/Caribbean shade of blue really makes a statement, doesn't it? It's bright and modern. These colors aren't me either, but I think this bedroom is cute!

Now this kind of sage green really does work for me. I love it, it's so soothing and wonderous. But if I have to be knit-picky again, I must be truthful and say I'm not a fan of modern design in the home. But that's for me personally. I appreciate the beauty of the modern aesthetic in other people's houses - the clean lines especially. But I am a comfy slob of a girl, so living in a modern space for an extended period of time would make me uncomfortable and a bit cold. But I love, love, love this green color. Green might very well be my most favorite color in the world.

Inspiring designs, yes?
