I love that little table. I also quite like the texture of your stamped concrete and wouldn't hide it. I would get something to pick up more the colors of the tiles in the table, maybe bright cushions.

Rhonda, did you run off with the Property Brothers? Did you decide on a rug for the porch? What about the table-scape for the party?

"Forced on them" answers the question. Of course we all sterotype too much. And going dead against the sterotype is also forcing - there is a novel one of whose main plots is about a boy named Bertie who cannot have friends over because his mother painted his bedroom pink to break stereotypes.

Confessions, when I made my son's baby clothes I did make him a pink shirt out of left over scraps. My hubby loves colors, and has a couple of pink shirts. But the kids do not like pink now that they are young men.

I would wait til she starts demonstrating her own choices. Then go with them a bit at a time, and expect her change as she grows.

I thought I recalled reading something about pink and blue being inspired by the Gainsborough portraits, so googled it. A couple of interesting takes: http://daisyfairbanks.typepad.com/daisy_fairbanks_vintage/2008/12/pinkaholism.html http://www.smithsonianmag.com/arts-culture/when-did-girls-start-wearing-pink-1370097/ http://www.livescience.com/22037-pink-girls-blue-boys.html

Your daughter is only two. There are many colors that will work wonderfully with pink. Find a color scheme that uses pink in moderation.

I love the orange, it is the color of my kitchen. (And a decade ago I would have said it was my least favorite color). Mostly I dislike neutrals. I want things that take a stand, and generally I prefer purer shades with less brown or NO brown undertones. It makes me happy!

I really don't mind any color when used for accents. I don't typically like walls done in dark colors. I do not like red walls or walls in any of the orange/terra cotta/peach family.

Gray is gross! I have a barn red living room. It's so warm and happy!

I love the grace of the curved arch. That said niches are not about storage, they are about show. Otherwise they would have doors. So, what do you love? Artwork, flowers, family members. I very much liked the faux painting that Jingstad put up, and am sure you can hire local artists. There are senior citizens art groups everywhere, many of whom are quite talented. If you have cats, a bit of padding and a spray of catnip and you will have living art in the niches. I have been asked if one my handsomer cats was a statue because of her appearance still on the mantle.

Really do not like niches .. I would eliminate them. When we built our home 3 years ago, the builder's plans called for niches and plant shelves. I had them all removed.

Consult a local artist and have custom stained glass panels installed. You won't have to dust, paint, or otherwise secure loose objects. It appears they already have electrical for backlight. Just a matter of stained glass design with consideration for venting (lighting will put out heat).
