Wayne is hounding me for a color for the kitchen and yesterday's picks from Sherwin Williams of "Cherry Tomato" and "Red Tomato" were busts. Cherry Tomato was just too orange/pinkish and Red Tomato was just too dark, but it was the only color that I've found to come close to the pillow.
I curse the day that Wayne found that stupid paint magazine at Home Depot that had all the collegiate colors in it. He really likes the Alabama red and came up with this "bright" idea to paint a gray stripe in the middle of the dining room wall!! Give me a break!
So, my main issue with the red - because I like red and probably the Bama red is my favorite shade out of all the ones we've tried (but don't tell Wayne) - is that I think my living room is too light for such a bold color. I had orginally planned to stay warm and muted. Maybe I should repaint the living room?
So this is where my sweet Blog Readers come in! I've put a poll on my blog in the right hand corner and I NEED YOUR VOTES!! Please tell me if I should paint my kitchen red. I've included some links to show you where I started as far as ideas and where we are now. If you have any decorating ideas or suggestions, PLEASE leave me a comment. This is my house, ya'll! I don't want to jack it up!!
