Growing up we wanted our room to be two colors. Cobalt Blue and Kermit Green. Both of which would have needed a ridiculous amount of time and paint to make happen, so Mom kept her ground on telling us no. At age 16 we were frustrated by the decision, but click through to see how we came to see the bright light after the jump.

Last fall we moved into a loft in downtown Kansas City. It only has one drywall wall (the other 3 are solid red brick) and then a drywalled bathroom (thank heavens). Ironically enough, the bathroom turned out to be the same blue we had paint chips of back in the day. And the one wall in our apartment that's drywall... you guessed it, Kermit green. All the way up to the 20ft ceilings.

Now we wish we could say that it's all we ever wanted in life, but since our move in we've been living with the color scheme the way it was. Although we've grown to be fans of the blue, the green is just... well... not for us. We're glad that Mom was one step ahead of us back in the day, because it's rather unsettling to go to sleep against a wall covered in a brighter version of split pea soup! Check out the colors for yourself!
