I have a "modern" house. I do love my house but it is a basic 4 bedroom with study, with all the standard themes of the moment - the island bench, the open plan living. Like I said I love it, but there is nothing really interesting about it. This is good in a lot of way - I have a blank canvas to play with.
My problem is that the interior has been painted a very boring cream colour, actually it is more like a plaster board colour. Plus all the trims and doors have been painted that colour. I would love a really crisp white, (Gild and Grace have a great post with lots of white rooms at the moment)but that means I have to paint all the trims and doors white as well - double the work, or double the cost. So I thought I might go a colour, then I can get away with leaving the trims for the moment. I am thinking a very pale grey/blue or a very pale green. What do you think?? I need advice....
Here are some great ideas, but not sure if I am bold enough to do the whole house:
Blue grey ... Yellow is not for me, but I like the look.
This looks lovely and fresh, perfect against the white.
Love this, the pale green with the wooden feature looks very earthy.
Bright green - love it, it looks so fresh.
Again, a brighter blue but a different feel, very warm.
Hmm, I think looking at all these photos have made me love plain old white even more....
