#33 - Jamie's Pink Argument

Name: Jamie
Location: Raleigh, NC
Type: 3 bedroom home, own!

Why I use color:

I use color to cover up dirt, to give me something to do (ie repaint a lot), to liven up our space and to frighten potential buyers when we sell because every room is a different color.

2 Good color tips:

1) you absolutely positively cannot go wrong with pink (we have a pink guest room, not shown b/c comforter is infested with cat hair currently). its pink, yes, but once you get past that, its so warm and friendly and happy, and pink.

you start by planting a seed. "honey, i'm thinking about painting the guest room PINK!". you'll get a "hunh, really?". then a few weeks later, you bring home some paint samples. then, one saturday, viola, pink room! I'm trying to same tactic for getting a dog.

2) make sure you have lots of time and patience if you want to paint a room red with flat paint.
