our house is the place where we would like to spend time in tranquility. as much as possible we would like to feel the harmony and peace inside. the color and its fixtures creates a homey environment where we can relax after a tiring day of work. in that case, i prefer a pink bedroom, a cream living room and a yellow kitchen lol, because they say color yellow is stimulating, and it stimulate appetite lol. what about you? what color would you prefer?

My husband and I want earthy type tones in our homes. Browns and cream colors, whites, a bit of that. Now we also want some red in the home as well. This can be conveyed in paint as well as furniture. These colors are calming I believe.

very creative idea. i saw this house where the door was painted with giant flowers, very nice to look at and very creatively done. i want my bedroom to appear like a plant too, because i like gardening as well. i painted my bedroom wall pink and my dresser and closet green so it would appear like a color of a flower and plant . and to top it all my bed has a very large red roses prints. i like it very much...

I prefer cream colors. Something that matches a lot of different things and is neutral just in case we move and need to sell the house it's not anything too crazy. I like to just relax at home, so not brights or crazy designs.

yeah you are correct haronee, cream colors suits any fixtures we add to out house, the curtain most especially and the sofa. harmony in colors can be easily created if we have creams as basic colors. colors indeed helps in creating tranquility, me too would like to feel relaxed at home, so it is very important to put some not so bright colors especially at the bedroom. thanks, thanks harmonee. God Bless!

I prefer to have light colored wall to reflect light. My lounge is painted cream, my kitchen is white, my wall is pale yellow, my bedroom is white, my bathroom is white and my children's bedroom is blue. I am thinking of painting all my walls in my house cream. I was thinking of moving and I looked around a house where all the walls were cream. It made that house look bigger than it really was.

yeah correct light colors seemed to enhance the space in the house. your choice of colors are neat, if you can put a little dark color to put some accent, that would look elegant. thanks maxi... take care

I like to use green paint (mint green or light shade of green) because it is cool & pleasant to the eyes. As much as possible I'd like a different shade of green for every part of the house, like, dark green in the bathroom, light shades in the living room and dining room.

Black! black can be beautiful. i saw this kitchen of my friend where the theme is black, very nice, the fridge is black, the sink, the tiles, the counter top, the oven and the cooking set black and she put and accent of red color, the stool used at the counter top, very nice to look at, but feels scary at night with blacks... light cream is nice and blue for bedroom as well, nice choices! thanks for posting Gany...
