I’m not the kinda girl who gives up just like that, oh no!
*slowly pets you* This reminds me of the time I had to take hours to explain why an orange and purple painting would look heinous in our green living room =_= It appears parents have no colour sense… XD
HELP ME I;M GOING TO HAVE A CONFUSED RAINBOW HOUS E I WON’T BE ABLE TO LIVE IN IT SAVE MEkaekami replied to your post:My parents don’t understand that if we’re going to…Beige, pink, and purple isn’t too bad - you have all red tones, so rust would be good. My hallway is tan, and most rooms in my house are neutral or light tones (mauve, white, forest green, blue), then there’s my room - teal. XD
hOW IS BEIGE RE D?! Well I guess some shades are but no this one looks more like a more faded version of the honeydew in my family room and the kitchen is GREY-violet and it’s really dark so it’d suddenly go from like midnight zen time to WOW SUN! to WHO PAINTED THE WALLS WITH BLOOD?! LIKE IT’S GOING TO LOOK REALLY CONFUSED ND RAINBOW-Y AND LIKE I WOULD BE OKAY IF THEY CHOSE COOL COLOURS FOR THE OTHER PARTS BUT YOU CAN’T GO FROM COOL-DARK TO BRIGHT SUNNY NEUTRAL TO HOT RED THAT DOESN’T LOOK NIC E IN MY HOUSE (I mean if my house had doors it would be different but it doesn’t have doors)
Beige is a brown tone with some warmth, therefore it has red in it. Just like purple and pink have red in them XD Is it an actual neutral light violet-gray, or dark? A light gray-violet wouldn’t be bad, since light neutrals match. Then a light-neutral for the living room would be best, especially if you still had warm tones. Just try to get your parents to move to something a little lighter, and you’ll be fine. If you did a neutral green, you’d have a triad I think.
And dude, ignore bedrooms. XD Like my room is a very obvious bright teal, in a very neutral house. Does my room really look that terrible with the neutral tan hallway? Not really. Bedrooms are separate enough that you shouldn’t worry about them. My room sticks out like a sore thumb comparing to every other room in the house. One of the best ways to get things to match is baseboards after all. The white baseboards around my first floor connect the rooms, despite all the rooms being neutral, and my room being very bright (though the neutral stripe in it helps).
My mum has been buying me stuff for when I get my own place (things like dishes, and teapots), and I am pretty sure I am going to have an under-the-sea Asian theme.
I have two teapots with Japanese designs, some Japanese teacups, and some stuff that my parents got when some Chinese restaurant went out of business.
