No more blues....

What is it with Kiwi's and their love of blue paint? Every single house we've lived in or owned here (which is three) has had a room entirely painted in blue - a vivid, yet dark, blue. The sort of blue that makes your eyes bleed and blood freeze. The previous two houses we were in it was at least limited to the bathroom, but here they'd gone mad and decided the entire lounge should be blue. Yuk!

But that all changed this week, we are finally "Kiwi blue" free.

Our bedroom was a pukey pink and the kitchen-dining-mezzanine area was a funky 70's wallpaper which had been partly covered with another awful pastel colour so that had to be painted over too.

The painters were so old that I felt guilty that they were up and down ladders all day - sometimes stopping to warm their arthritic hands on the coal stove!! But they did a fabulous job and finished the lot in 2.5 days!

WOW what a difference! That blue lounge wont be missed, and it'll be much ligher and feel warmer.

Can we come back and take a closer look? :)

Now just for the record - that wasn't OUR idea to have the blue lounge or the migraine-inducing wallpaper in the library, ok?

Hmmmmm. The new drapes. Moving right along - the colours in the lounge and bedroom are great!

Coming to think of it, you are right. We too have a blue bathroom and we used to have one of the walls in the living area blue.

We have even seen houses with more than four colours on the four walls!

Blue paint costs half the price of the other stuff I think!!

And yes, we're still here, loving every minute of our house with blue carpet throughout!!!!

Big update on the blog today....
