Really annoyed here right now.....i bought two tins of paint to change the colour of my lounge, it was supposed to be a "forest green", the picture
on the tin looked great, however after painting just a fraction of my room i can see that is drying an "army olive green" colour.
This is an ongoing pain in my lifes backside. I am so bad at picking the right colour to live in. You see i grew up in a house where the only option
was magnolia and white. That was it, and i grew to hate it. I understand you can spice things up with accessories and different colour furniture, but
it just never happens for me.
Not sure how many guys here understand this, from what i've seen it's usualy the ladies that pick the colours and accessories, however i live on my
own with two daughters....so it's down to me.
I want lots of colour, bright colours so that everything in the house is interesting to be around. There so many inspiring rooms on the internet, i'm
tempted to just pick one and copy it, that way i'm sure to get something right.
Does anyone else have this problem? I know i'm not colourblind, but every colour i pick to put on my walls ends up being too strong or dark.
