Recently, I was lucky enough to take a trip to Venice and Burano, Italy. The vibrancy of the colors of the buildings and street art there were absolutely breathtaking, inspiring immediate joy in anyone who came across them. It was commonplace to see gorgeous reds, blues and yellows decorating the homes, and was inspiring for me as a Seattelite who is used mostly to neutrals and bricks. So what do you think? Would you paint your home a vibrant color?
If you're like me and you live in an apartment, this question can still be raised in a similar fashion. Would you ever paint a bold and vibrant accent wall? How about a front door? Barring any city ordinances, condo associations or landlords, and provided you had the time and energy to climb up on a ladder and get it done: would you? What color?
