Our previous home had green walls in the front room. I loved them. When we moved to this house, I fell in love with the new wall color and chose not to change it. (Stonington Beige by Glidden if anyone is wondering.) It isn't a color I would have picked out on the paint sample rack, but I couldn't be more happy with the way it looks in our front room and hallway. The nice thing about it is that it is very neutral.
I've kept my red because I have a few pieces of furniture I don't wish to get rid of yet, but I like playing around with a third accent color. Like orange and yellow, or green. Right now, it is Robin's Egg blue. Love it.
So, we've done three projects lately that lend themselves to easy color changes. The circle collage. The silhouettes. (Do you see that I repainted the canvases?) The candles. Even the wheat grass can be planted in a variety of containers to go with a color theme. Taper candles are another easy way to throw in a bit of extra color.
