Get out your [Dior] shades

I don't really feel like posting a bunch of the photos that I took of my empty house after the floors were put in and the whole thing was painted, so I'll just throw out a few fun ones.

Most of the colors we chose are pretty neutral, but I am all for making statements in bathrooms. We revisited Tahitian blue in our downstairs bathroom, as an homage to our honeymoon:



but my FAVORITE color in the whole house is in our guest bathroom!





It is literally so fucking bright that it ALWAYS looks like a light is on the room! Hee hee. Everyone pretty much hates it, but I love, love, love it and couldn't be happier.

On a totally different note, for any of you that are considering painting a room green, I'd like to recommend staying away from Sherwin William's Lucky Green.

It is not so lucky.

Unlucky:





Lucky {boring} beige:



I LOVE bright, fun colors, but Lucky Green was just not my jackpot.

Here's the fun shag carpet we gleefully had ripped out:



and here are my new ebony floors:





and one of the other fun colors in the house:



Unfortunately, after much deliberation, we decided to part with the pink bedroom that was there when we moved in:



RIP Pink Princess!

Love the floors! The guest bathroom looks reminiscent of my old living room in JP, no? Colonial flamingo, as Dad used to call it?

Your ebony floors and deep blue room are swoon-worthy. I love houses with bright and bold colors!
