I love white walls, but too much white is boring. So, on my day off, pissing rain outside and nothing to do, I grabbed hold of a couple of tubs of paint, and decided to give a new look to my room.
I don't know what you think about it, but i love the overall effect.
The red is actually much deeper, it came out a little orangy in the pics, and it gives the room a very warm feel.
I also painted my bulbs with some pink paint, 'cos I hate bright lighing
I left a sort of white frame at the sides, making the wall 'lighter', it gives the idea of a big painting hanging from the wall, rather then the wall itself.
Hope you like

yep.
painted the ones on my terrace green. at nite looking out you get the impression you're in the jungle, with the green lite lighting the plants.
painted them yellow in the drawing room, to give a softer atmosphere too.
glad u like the room.
cheers,
c.

Ooooo, saucy!

I love the color - it REALLY makes a complete difference!  It's so "glowing", without being obnoxious.  Great job!

That looks great, I love color. I always heard that regular paint on lightbulbs would burn and smoke...I'm guessing you haven't had this problem, eh?
