Color is your friend my friend. But you got to do it right otherwise you might have a bad situation on your hands. If you haven’t made any decisions yet, I’m sure Cassia would love to help you guys out as this is the exact kind of stuff her degree prepared her for. Let me know brotha.
Q: We just purchased a 1930’s Bungalow and the previous owners had recently painted the kitchen a brick red color that I’m happy with, but nearly every other room needs paint. I figured I’d just work around the kitchen and I had a good plan, but my future Mother-in-law caught wind of my tentative color scheme and launched a full-on intervention. I’m leaning towards bright, rich colors and she’s absolutely aghast and thinks we should choose light, neutral colors. Am I totally tacky? Is color gauche? I’m just not sure whether her taste is old-lady or mine is Skittles-ish?
My wife sent me this several months after claiming that nobody uses the word “gauche” (after I used it somehow). Not an explicit admission of defeat, but I’ll take it.
