So you've seen what I've done with my bedroom, now here are some pics from other rooms in my house. Needless to say, I love using bright, bold colors. I'm still tweaking with things here and there, but overall my months of renovation and work have paid off nicely, if I do say so myself. Czech it out, son!

Here is my living room, complete with my gorrrrrgeous microsuede couch, which I adore. This is pretty much the only room that's a neutral color.


My bathroom may be the most controversial, as hot pink is not a desired color by many. I dub the look "Caribbean Colonialism" as the pink is paired with a cool crisp white (cloth shower curtain, sink, toilet, accessories), a deep tropical green (leaves of the orchids, towels, polka dot shower liner), and dark wood/bamboo (wainscoting [sp?], bamboo tray on the counter, picture frames). The gilded mirror and the colonial engraving hung behind the loo add the sophisticated twist. Here's one pic, complete with my cat drinking from the sink:


My kitchen is a bright orange with white tiling along the walls. I LOVE the color and have accented the room with Latin (Mexican and Italian) Catholic imagery, not because I'm particularly religious, but because I think the artwork inspired by it is vibrant and beautiful.
This first pic is a little corner next to my fridge:


This little weird shelf near the ceiling has been dubbed "Atoning for my Sins" with my shot glass collection:


A cross I found in Mexico near the kitchen's doorway:


My wineglass rack above my sink could very well be my fave thing in the world.


I wanted the transition from my bright kitchen to my neutral dining room and living room to be smooth, so I opted for a cooler, almost creamsicle orange. Here's what my "stove room" looks like:


Part of the dining room, with the french doors that lead out to my eastern patio:


I stripped the nasty old carpet off my office/library floor and since the wood was soft and in poor condition, I had to paint it this brown color, but I think it complements the bright green well. This room definitely needs further work (ie: that is in no way the permanent window treatment), but I like how it's progressing. The records are old, warped ones of Elvis' greatest hits that I found in an attic. I'm not a huge fan of the Stones or Elvis, but I respect their effect on music and like how it works in here. Plus I'm a music nut as a whole.




This bookshelf is actually part of my old country desk, but the ceilings are so low in my upstairs that I had to separate them and put it on the floor.

<gasp>

Your home is so beautiful.  It really shows that you've put alot of effort into fixing it up. 

And I have to disagree. EVERY bathroom should be hot pink like yours.

I LOVE the color in your house.  The use of bright pink in the bathroom is incredibly original and utterly gorgeous.  And your kitchen...my mouth is hanging open.  I feel the need to paint now!

I too will have to agree that I like the bathroom best. The green of the plant clashes beautifuly with the pink walls. And I thing clashing is a good thing by the way, it makes my eyes feel funny Tongue
