How often have we heard, "beige is boring"? I've never been one to buy that line because I've always felt that beige, done right, is beautiful. Beige can be elegant, relaxing, inviting and paired with raspberry, exciting. I have always been a lover of the coffee and cream look in both decorating and in my wardrobe. It always looks right, formal or informal, dressy or casual. When excited by warm metal tones in lamps, table accents mirrors or jewelry, beige is classy and always right.

Karlyne Landrum: We too have what you call HUD beige in a foreclosed home we bought last year. My soft green bedroom looks almost blue at certain times of day against the beige ceiling (like you I DO NOT like to paint ceilings), but when I find the time I will end up having to pain that one. I did find a true light blue for a bathroom (no yellow or red in it) that still looks blue even against the beige ceiling. For the rest of the house, I added chocolate brown and mocha brown accent walls which the beige ceiling looks fine with and gives a similar effect to the traditional white ceiling and blend very nicely with the beige. I think the biggest things to avoid would be grays and mixed colors as the small amount of yellow and red in the beige will turn your purplish blue into blue and your green with just a hint of blue into blue green : ) On another note, if you figure out the manufacturer and style of the flooring (the 12 foot wide vinyl floor made to look like 9 inch tan/gray stone tiles) that I've seen in multiple repo's, please let me know. We adding a small mudroom and would like to just continue the same flooring.

When someone said they're waiting for wireless lighting, the image of an old-fashioned oil lamp jumped into my mind. I don't have one, but I do use candles for soft lighting in awkward-for-cords places. That's wireless technology for you!

That was me. I can't use candles (have a really bushy tailed cat), it is very hard to find scentless candles, and I really like to sit where I want when reading. Candle power is not very good for reading but fabulous for dining. I have become used to electric lighting, just don't want all my furniture lined up against walls, or cords running everywhere, or going to the expense of drilling holes in the floors and tunneling wiring to the walls. If we can put a man on the moon, why can't we put all men on the moon ;)

We're in the last days of one small reno which is the lead up to a larger one later in the year.
Will we use the same contractor - yes, he's easy enough to get along with and the work he does is alright. (plus everything is already ordered).
Would I recommend him to friends - no. Because he is rather disorganised and the work is alright.
I'm prepared to put up with him (after all, we're kinda disorganised too) but don't feel he's good enough to take the responsibility of recommending him to someone I know.
Some contractors I will sing their praises loud and clear, others just don't get me that excited.

We live in an older home without A/C, so we leave our windows open at night to cool off. Since our bedroom has five! doors, furniture tends to be under the double hung windows, making them difficult to access to open and close. The room with the bed in the middle of the windows made me think of that.

I solved the small-bedroom problem in my 100-year-plus central-stair colonial by hunting down an antique 3/4 spool bed. Love it!
