What colour is your lounge ?

Home hunting brings forth a multitude of "Living Rooms" I could not live in

It seems that Lime Green and Burnt Sienna as the two most popular colours these days in living rooms

and there is an overwhelming passion for Black bedrooms with bright PINK large flowered wall papers

Which lead me to think, what do many photographers decorate their living rooms in ? Paint ? or Wallpaper ? and what colours ?

Mine are "Magnolia" only because we are on the market and advised "neutral is best" ...

Re: What colour is your lounge ?

Hi Chevvy,

I painted the lounge Sail White which is neutral, the room looks more spacious and it complements the artwork we have on the walls, plus I have left two areas bare and that acts as a huge soft box if when I bounce a flash it gives lovely soft shadows.

When we moved in one of the bedrooms was a vivid pink with black curtains we got to work on that room straight away now it looks calm and peaceful very easy on the eye.

We both prefer the mimimalistic look clutter free.

Tom

What colour is my (our) lounge? - whatever colour the wife tells me to paint it. It's the same with all the rooms. It keeps her happy, and when she's happy it makes life easy .

I like painted walls for that "more spacious look" and light & bright walls too since Nick decorated for the house sale - I am not allowed "nails in walls" and when we move we are to have picture hook in the ceiling with "thread" and loops to hang pictures from

No bookshelves either instead invisable ones, so they look like plaster board walls with push-click release doors so minimal dusting and no visible clutter aka ornaments and books

A Hint of something or other (wife's choice) looks like BS Primer to me...
