What colour is most of your furniture?Follow

When I was 17, I opened my closet, and realised that the vast majority of my clothes were all some shade of purple. Since then, I've read some things about the psycological effects of colours on people, and also some different prescriptions by different traditional cultures on what sort of colours are "good for you" as far as housing goes. It also intrigues me that there seem to be some colour palettes in the West that are "masculine", and some that are "feminine"... and different households seem to let the male or the female of a mixed household take over the furnishings of different rooms.

I seem to have decorated mostly in orange coloured wood, and my partner has decorated exclusively in black. We have inadvertently wound up with bee-coloured decor. How bout you?

Up until recently, my color scheme has always been black/grey. Now It's brown/black.

Everything is different shades of grey and wood, from the floor to the ceiling. Although the art on the walls and books and such provide some colour.

I'm all over the place, but I prefer earth tones.

Right now my couches are tan leather, but before I had green and white striped couches, and before that I had hideous orange couches because they were free.

The living room is mahogany and black, for the most part. A few wooden pieces are the wrong shade of wood (the dining room table being the biggest example) and I just toss a tablecloth over it for important occasions to make it blend in better. The 16 cubby Ikea bookshelf I use as a cubical wall for my desk is blonde wood, but it blends in with the carpet and the walls. The curtains are black.

Black, blond woods, and satin / brushed nickle, with the occasional stainless or chrome accent. except for the book shelves, which are a mix of "whatever they had at the store at the time" and some of the bedroom furnature which is blond woods and white.

Stately Roo Manor is mostly still the odd muted yellow most of the rooms where painted when we moved in. Our kitchen is green with a dark cork floor, twp of the other downstairs rooms are various shades of the aforementioned muted yellow with 100 year old maple floors that we need to refinish at some point. The other downstairs room is currently unfinished gypsum board color, which in this case is sort of a medium grey, delicately accented by black screwheads.

Most of the trim is white as are most of the built in storage set pieces (there are a lot of them) so when we add things, like the floor to ceiling bookcases we built into the living room, we mostly paint them the same white. Our other bookcases are various colors (we have a lot of books) ranging from lightly stained pine to black. One of the living room sofas is either white or red depending on which cover we have on it at the given moment, it's red right now, the other living room sofa is a dark green.

The upstairs rooms vary from Hannah's sky blue with rabbits fishing for stars decals to Spawn of Roo's room with a mural Nexa painted of light and dark sky on opposing sides with clouds on the ceiling and the like. I sort of forget the rest. Our bedroom is painted some color, I"m sure but it's not very memorable. I mean what with the mirrored ceiling, you don't really notice the walls.

My living room furniture is brown leather. Dining room stuff is wood - so more brown. End tables are wood but with slate tops. It's all really rather boring but easy to clean and comfy.

I painted my computer desk black to hide coffee stains.

Lots of stuff that was originally somewhere in between light brown and white. For a dash of color there's usually a couple of blotches, maybe a stain or two, and some stuck-on food.

I've found that granular gold furniture is both more comfortable and will more easily contour itself to your frame. It's easier to move around because you can just shovel it into smallish sacks for transport. You might want to take a look at it over the solid or gilt options.

I'll have you know that the whole bit about dragons sleeping on piles of gold is a sad bit of propaganda spread by displaced homeless dwarves. It's not our fault they couldn't pay the property taxes on their ancestral mines. The whole thing wasn't even up to fire code anyways. But no, dragons prefer to sleep on nice feather matresses. Do you know how many chickens you have to eat before you end up with enough feathers??? (Little known fact, that's why there were very few chickens in norrath.) We pile the gold coins around the perimiter as a very effective anti burgler defense. Gold has a fairly low melting point, so you can turn the whole place into one giant molten hobbit boiling cauldron with very little effort, and it stays cold enough that your nice chicken feather pile doesn't catch on fire, forcing you to start all over again.
