Paint Colors

(On our way into Lowe's)

Picking colors for the basement was a bit of a challenge. There is a lot of wall space down there so we didn't want too much color. We also have a mini shrine where we pray and that space is blue so we needed a color to go with blue. I immediately thought of orange since it's the complementary color of blue. But wait... we didn't want too much color. Or did we? After all, we love color. We're artistic kind of people. 3 years with white walls were torture enough. Orange would be bold, but it would be warm and inviting. It would look great with cream colored trim. Yes, orange would be quite lovely. So, I threw the idea to Mike and he actually agreed. What about the other end of the basement? Well, we just can't seem to get away from green. It's been Mike's long time favorite color and I'm all for earth colors. our kitchen is green and I've never regretted it. So, orange and green it is. With cream colored trim. ;)
