Colours/Colors

Colours in rooms make a big huge difference - we painted our kitchen, a lovely blue and our dining room a sparkly light purple and what a massive difference it has made to our place. It just looks fresher, cleaner and way more hip than the yellowy colour the rooms both had when we bought our place. A couple of buckets of paint and some elbow grease and voila. I'll post some pics soon. In the meantime, here are some wonderful colours, I'm thinking a repaint of the kitchen to hot pink-and have sensed a trend for me...I seem to gravitate to blues...PS Sorry for being away so long, I was on a mini blog break. 
1. I love this blue and the way the chandelier and the white trim really pops. 
2. Unconventional for me but this green really works here

3. Pink isn't the first colour to pop into your mind for a kitchen, but it works so well here.  
4. This is the blue we have in our kitchen, lovely and really gives the room a clean, crisp feel. 

5.I love this colour and the way the pictures all blend and pop against the wall
6. I love this red here, would be fantastic in a small den or even a dining room. 
7. Check out Betsey Johnson's apartment, it is totally pink, from top to bottom.

I adore that pink kitchen! I've been loving pink wall for a while and had our tiny powder room painted a hot pink. It makes me smile every time I go in there. I hope you do paint your kitchen pink! Keep us posted. :)

I love all the rooms, but that BLUE! So pretty... I would have never thought to paint the dresser in the same shade, but it totally works!
