Not


Welcome to La Carreta

Your table for four is ready.

Not!

Back to the drawing board.

I tried red first because I was afraid of red.

There's no creativity in fear.

I can't abide with the red.

Next!

  10. I like it but see I've been out-voted. Could you tone it down with cream or pale yellow...or tan to "distress" it? Wipe something over it and wipe off?
    all that work...

  12. They say red makes a person hungry... not me. It makes me all hot and sweaty.. try a cooler color.

  13. Love the red. If you use sage or another toned down color, it will make the room seem blah. I think you should keep it.

  14. I would try drybrushing a creamy colored paint mixed with glaze before repainting completely. Then maybe a big crackeled white framed mirror or something.

  15. I love it. . . lot's of energy in red. . .It will grow on ya. . .it's the orange pillows, you need to put the floral pillows in the front to bring out the red and the orange pillows behind the floral. . .

    I agree with Janie, once you put stuff up on the wall, like the picture with the coffee cup, love that one, you'll love it, it's good, it's alive, it's you. . .

  16. I once painted our hallway a similar color...looked like a murder had taken place! Of course, that was a downstairs and upstairs hallway, plus a staircase which was a bit much! One wall might be different! Thankfully I like painting...cuz I had to paint that hallway and many other rooms over again throughout the years! LOL

    I have to say, I LIKE the red. Then again, the kitchen in my old house was painted just about the same color. It was wonderful. In my current house, the wall surrounding the door in the front entrance (on the inside) is painted that same red. So, what're you trying next?

    Hugs,

  18. I don't think it's half bad...I thought the same thing about red, but when we bought our house, the dining room was red. I saw it and said, that will have to be painted' but after we decorated it, I really do like it...keep it there for awile and see how your eyes adjust.

I had a red bathroom once.. Just once.. Friend came in and asked me if I had slaughtered a pig in the bathroom.. It had a textured wall. Urggggg. It is now Cool Blue.. lol

  21. My vote was for blue! Try it you'll like it! Something light though, like turquoise or even lighter. ":<>

  22. ...how about just plain old white? why make it so much color? ..put the color in the pillows, plants and and stuff...

    ReplyDelete
  23. Yep-Hate the red..sorry to say! I'd say try the sage-y green OR off white...Good luck and God bless ya!;>) xo Diana

  24. Try a really light blue for the ceiling and maybe continue the same color on the wall as the color on the window walls..........it's a small area and it might be a bit calmer feeling. Whatever you decide will be just right, you are so talented. (hint, you can go to the fabric store and look at material and see what colors look good together.)

  25. Hmm... I like the red. It would need a piece of artwork in the middle of it.. but I like it. I also love a sage green, but the red really is working.

    I still don't see the blue there. I'm thinking blue isn't you.

  28. We used a golden yellow Benjamin Moore paint called Concord Ivory in our living room and just love it! We found it painted on the walls of a Yankee candle store. I think it would complement the green siding perfectly.

  29. I love the red too! I think it's perfect, it's just that those chairs are screaming for a good paint job, in maybe a very dark brown? And the salmon colored pillows are throwin the red too. Maybe pick a different accent color, but two thumbs up for the wall color! Can't wait to see what you decide. Uh, but not blue!

  30. Give it some time. I painted my sunroom red with white trim. I walked in after it was done and screamed holy ****. It looked like a barn - BUT once the furniture was in and the artwork was up - it really looked great!
