And I Forgot To Mention...

I also painted the door. He knew about this color choice, so it was not a shock, and I think it looks quite lovely. Bright, but lovely. At this point you probably think that my house is absolutely insane, but most of the other walls have been painted/will be painted gray, so these are the major "pops" of color. Is "pops" of color out of style? I've heard that "accent walls" are outdated, but "focal walls" are all the rage... Oh, designers, you so cray-cray.I also wanted to mention that mon amie Rebekah, sister of Raych and maker of aforementioned hippo cards, is giving away some art fabulousness. She is entering a contest, and needs to know what you think she should enter.. sound familiar, bloglings? Anyways, you should help her out, you might WIN something!
And, speaking of contests, I did not win the Spoonflower contest, but I was 5th, which ain't half bad! So thank you all SO much for your votes and love and the brownies you are going to send me. Right? RIGHT???

Oooo! The Yellow door with the grey (yes, I like to spell it the British way) and white remind me of a Denyse Schmidt quilt!

Brave person! Yellow was always the colour I seemed to choose without thinking when a major life change happened. A yellow front door on a new flat; a yellow dress after a messy break-up; some lovely lovely lovely yellow sandals for no reason at all except that they were memorable because a cat managed to throw up in both of them at the same time..... Now I would go for greys, but I'd need a pop of colour in there too. Look forward to seeing the rest of the house some time!

I love the yellow and gray together, so lovely! My next door neighbors just painted their house a nice pale green with white trim, and the front door a bright eggplant purple. It looks great. We need to paint our front door, but not our house. The house is cream, the trim is beige. SO boring.

Love the yellow door - especially with grey!

Accent walls are out? It figures - I just painted one in my dining room. A gorgeous pumpkiny/squash color. The other three walls will be ... grey.
