Colorful vs All-white home

Years ago, there were two photo shoots of Dolly Parton’s and Yoko Ono’s homes, which were decorated all in white:  White carpet, white walls, white drapes, white furniture, and white grand piano.

All that white made their living rooms look stark and austere.  I was not impressed.

Take my home in Hawaii.  It is so colorful.  I feel very comfortable with the multihued rooms in my house, not to mention the exterior.  When you see my house from the curb, you will see a green driveway and a yellow house with white trim.  The front yard has green grass, a green palm tree, and six colorful crotons.

When you enter my house, you will see colorful paintings on the walls, a pale blue carpet, a colorful silk rug, and colorful flowers on the dining and coffee tables.

To me, an all-white home is the kiss of death.

I prefer a home that is brimming with the colors of the rainbow.  That, to me, is the kiss of life.

These are photos of my home:

    Books add color to our otherwise beige house. I like pale colors for my surroundings, but I wear bright colors, and of course, there is my bright red hair!

    When we had the exterior of the house painted, I wanted the same vanilla it had been, along with vanilla trim. The painter asked about the front door. “Paint it any color you want.” So he painted it bright red. “Like your hair.”
