When we moved in everything was painted white, and we got to choose curtains and carpets throughout, which was definitely a good thing. We were too late though, to choose the tiles we wanted in the bathrooms, and the finish we wanted in the kitchen. That was all fine. I quite like the kitchen, and our bathroom, but the family bathroom is another matter. The tiles are beige.
Every time I went in the room I thought "the tiles are beige". I'm not going to replace the tiles because they're fine, even though they are beige, but I had to do something to distract me from the beigeness.
It took me a long time to work out what to do to distract from the beigeness, but I've worked it out now.
How to distract from beige? Grey. I know, it's exciting isn't it?
And yellow. Lots of yellow, but that's in pictures and towels and blinds and stuff, stuff that was there from the beginning, alongside the beige.
Good to know that my efforts have not been in vain. To be fair, I'm the only person who cares about the beige tiles, and I am sooooo much happier now that the walls are grey (and I'm the only one who cares about that too). OK, so it's not that big a change, but I like it. I'm hoping I will be struck by inspiration on something for the walls in the living room next. Every idea I do come up with gets shot down by Kenny, so have you got any suggestions? Picture below.
