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?
