I have found that colors I am drawn to are not necessarily ones Mister Fox would choose. The other day after seeing my color swatches he stated he was concerned the interior of our home was going to look like a gypsy wagon. I’m not sure I see that as a bad thing…
It’s so cheery!
I am simply trying to unite the colors of our home. Kit #1 has chosen green for his room. The color of grass or as close to it as possible. Kit #2 has chosen dark blue-green. The bathroom which is between their two rooms is light blue, black, and white. A dark purple has already been approved for the dining room and a light airy lemony color for the living room. Splashes of cherry red are planned for the kitchen and inside cabinets. Okay, I can see why Mister Fox is concerned. I think if I’m careful, done well it won’t be garish.
I’m drawn to pure clear gem tones. So you can see why the photo above looks like heaven to me. I started thinking about what colors Mister Fox is drawn to, colors he wears and so on. He likes muddied earth tones. Greys, olives, browns but also the sharp contrast of black and red. The question is, do I make him live in vibrant color or do I find a happy medium? Is there a happy medium? What color is it? Now that we have walls we can paint any color we choose I don’t want to live in all white/beige again!
