Paint Colors Again
I'm looking for opinions again.
We had a realtor come through the house today to give his opinion. One thing he said was that he thought I needed to change the paint colors because he thought they were too bright. I agree that it would be good to repaint the kid's rooms and playroom/formal dining room because they are undeniably pink and blue. I don't know that I agree on the main interior color which is a buttery yellow. The house was freshly painted in shades of beige, taupe, and olive when we bought it three years ago. We thought it was quite drab. We liked the yellow because it brightened the place up and made it look bigger and more inviting. We've gotten lots of compliments on the color and have had at one person paint their interior yellow because they liked what they saw at our house.
I've been looking through home interior magazines and have seen a lot of yellow walls. I thought I had read some place that yellow was a new 'in' color in selling. Am I off base in thinking that yellow is an acceptable selling color? I'm aware that my house is at the point where it isn't really my home any more, it's a commodity to sell and I want to present it in the best light. Ultimately, it's my choice, but I'd prefer not to paint any shade of beige, taupe, or eggshell as suggested by the realtor unless really necessary.
Color preferences may vary by market location. What do you think?
