I am thinking I have to paint some rooms in the house. I am getting ideas for the media room, but that won't make a big impact since it's not something you see unless you go into the room (which we don't have equipment for yet so no reason to go in there unless you are looking for a game or a DVD).
In the past we have always just had pretty plain colors on the walls and not gotten too crazy about painting rooms. The last house we had we painted the master bedroom and sitting room a green color and the kid's shared bathroom a pastel yellow color, but that was pretty much it. It seems that more houses in the Dallas area have a LOT of color in them.
Do you customize your house with paint or do you do it with accessories? What colors do you like best for main areas of your house?

My husband hates colored walls- we have 2 wall colors in our entire house- a sandy light beige and in my daughter's room and bath a very, very light peach. Our house is very clean and crisp-

I am not afraid of color. But we don't have the extra income to do a lot around here like buying a lot of accessories. My husband wouldn't like all that stuff sitting around.
I'm basically living in a plain Jane setting. Except for my red & gold bedroom.The living room is small, so any dark color would make it smaller looking. We are currently working on a library room. Plan to paint it olive green/maybe some gold.
I like natural colors right now. Greens, browns, tans, gold, rust...etc.
