For some time now I have been second guessing my pale blue/coral color scheme in my LR. I have been fighting it due to the simple fact that it was one of only two rooms that I had really settled on a design scheme for. But, the more I thought about it the more I realized there were a couple of thing that just didn't quite sit right with me about it. I thought the pale blue and pale pinky orange to be a tad juvenile for a home with zero children. It also really lends itself to a beach theme which is definitely not what I'm aiming for. And so I changed my mind. Not a lot but I did change it nonetheless.
Before I tell you what I changed it too, I'll tell you the convo I had with John about it:
Me: So I'm starting to rethink the blue and orange color scheme down here.
John: (look of reliefe on his face) Oh good! I was hoping you would. I didn't want to say anything cause I could see you loved it so much but I didn't like it.
Me: (now looking shocked and a tad worried) Really? You never even hinted.
John: I didn't want to hurt your feelings. And I figured if it made you happy then I'd be fine with it. But I don't like the idea of the blue walls, I'd rather have something more neutral like a brown.
Me: Oh. (quickly trying to hide my magazine containing my inspiration picture)
John: Why what did you have in mind now?
Me: Ummm... never mind.
John: No show me I want to see it.
Me: Uh... ok.... but you're not going to like it.
*note the mint green/blue walls
John: (silence) I like this.
Me: But the walls are still pretty much blue. Just more of a mint blue. I just wanted to add green and navy instead of the coral.
John: Ya...I like it....I just want you to be happy with it.
What a great husband I have.
