The color of the walls in our house are supposed to be a "peach" color, but it looks more like the color of flesh to me - which kind of weirds me out. Personally, I prefer decorating with shades of brown or blue. I also like the color red. Flesh. Nuh uh. No. Envision silly putty smeared on the walls. I'll try to ignore the flesh color for now, but I have the instinctual urge to smear a little rouge here and there.

The kitchen, on the other hand, looks like the insides of a lemon meringue pie (my favorite pie). Again, not my number one choice in color, but I can live with it. I could do without the funky wallpaper border, though. Get this - it's a repeated picture of a bird perched on a basket of fruit that is set behind a halved watermelon. I can understand wanting to put pictures of fruit around the kitchen. Really, I can. Why the inclusion of a bird in the scene? If a bird was sitting next to the exposed flesh of a watermelon that I might eat, that fruit would be in the trash expeditiously. Do you realize, people, what kind of bacteria a bird carries? Some birds have parasites and junk. What if it pooped on the watermelon? What was this artist thinking?

Thankfully, the bedrooms are a nice boring cream color (you know - the color Selene and I pained over my beautiful brown bedroom in back in Oregon). Once we put up our pictures, that will help!
