    All our bedrooms are some shade of blue, except DD

    My daughter's is the only room in our house that is blue. It's a pretty blue with white trim that works with her floral  princess theme.

    Our entire home is a creamy beige-have used the same color for years even when we re-paint. I use color in drapes, blind toppers, throws and throw pillows for accent  or to brighten or change the look of a room as needed.

    All of our walls are country white.  We painted our master bath ice water (light blue) when we moved in, but painted it country white too after a couple of years!  It just easier to change decor than paint!

    Living room/dining room/kitchen (one room wrapped around the basement stairs), pale yellow with one darker yellow wall along the long end, and a white ceiling to tie in with the white hall.

    Guest room is cream, including the ceiling, with mauve trim (I found a can of mauve in the clearance bin at Home Depot)

    Office is cream, including the ceiling, with green trim (green also from the clearance bin)

    My bedroom is light blue, including the ceiling, with mid-blue trim; the bathroom is reversed, the mid-blue on the walls and light blue on the trim

    Guest bathroom is light green.

    I love the oops paints, too, and always find a bucket of something I could use.  I recently picked up a gallon of tannish-taupe hi-grade floor enamel at Sears Hardware for $7.97.  I think it'll be perfect for the basement steps and landing...Liz.

    When you can find the cement or porch&floor paints on the oops rack its like hitting the lottery LOL! I got 2 that way. One color i did not care for on the floor because it was too light, so i used it on the concrete chimney that runs up the center of our house.

    I live in a rental so i didn't pick these colors...walls are white in most rooms.  In the bathroom they are "shockua" or "shocking aqua" which the land lady had left over from painting some sort of trim at her house.  I hate it, but I don't spend much time in there so it doesn't really matter.

    Have you chosen your colors yet?

    I'm going to do the living room and main hall with a light taupe and do the trim in white - a change for me because I've been painting baseboards the same color as the walls for years.  We're putting down woodgrain vinyl and I like the look of it with white trim that I see all over these days, even though they make matching trim for the flooring we're using. 

    An ocean gray/blue for the bathroom, I think, since it'll go nice with the beige bathtub tile, but no hurry there.

    The main question is still our bedroom.  I may either use the same taupe as the rest of the house or go a few shades lighter but I like very light sage green, too.  It'll probably depend on what kind of bedding and curtains I can find on-the-cheap, lol!  Liz.
