As you know we are doing a lot of house hunting lately.
One thing I just do not understand is why some people feel compelled to paint dark colors inside their homes. Of course, my daughter says that is because I am a REALLY BORING PERSON. But I like neutral colors. That doesn't make me boring. I just like a blank canvas upon which to project my creativity.
The House upon which we have bestowed our offer and which STILL languishes unaccepted has black walls in the family room and a living area with very high 2 story ceiling which is cleary an homage to the LA Lakers. The penants hanging on the walls are one clue, but the most obvious clue is the paint job: Purple walls and gold ceilings. Oh yeah. If we get this house some painter is going to be a happy camper! The room that would be my daughters is also a dark redish brown color but she is happy about that. Nothing screams teenager like a cave for a bedroom.
And as awful as that all is, it is nothing compared to this house we looked at the same day. There were pics of it online. See how lovely it is outside?
But the inside: 1900 square feet of brick red/orange paint.
Even on the ceilings.
And the floors have maroon carpet. Seriously. I couldn't make this up.
When we saw this house it was empty. It doesn't look better empty.
Can someone explain this to me, PLEASE???
