Sea of Beige

We went shopping for new carpet today. It was frustrating, to say the least. Here’s why:

In a sea of beige,
I am a sparkly blaze.
In a sea of gray,
I am the bud of May.
In a sea of white,
I am a blinding light.

Alone.
Unique.
A pop of color in a drab, drab world.

In a monochrome sea,
I am a sunflower waving in the breeze.

Are you a neutral color kind of person? Or is your home full of color?

      I’m the same way when it comes to clothes! I once bought a lime green sweater and had to be talked into wearing it because I was just sure that it would look terrible on me. 🙂

      But when it comes to my house, I love color. It doesn’t have to be loud or anything, just not neutral. We have four kids, and beige, black, and white all show pretty much everything a kid can do to a floor. And we loved the colors we had in our last two houses, so now we’re trying to replicate them in our new house, but finding our carpet colors has proven to be more of a challenge than we thought (thankfully there was no real challenge with the paint and wallpaper border).
