Would you buy a house with mustard yellow walls?
One of my customers recently bought a home near downtown Asheville with walls the exact color of my favorite condiment for a ham sandwich.
Somehow it's more appetizing on the food than it is on the wall. (Side note: I've got to stop blogging at lunch time. Now all I can think about is ham sandwiches.)
Take a look at the living room now. I think I could live here, don't you?
They had us paint the dining room in a cool mint green which really set off the white trim. I like it. It's kind of retro.
The master bedroom also had an unusual color: a deep navy blue. I usually like dark blue walls, but for some reason it was oppressive in this room.
My customers tried several colors, including the green from the dining room, before they settled on a soft dove gray.
It's a very different room.
The moral of the story is that when you're house-hunting, pay no attention to the color on the walls. Repainting is comparatively cheap, and while everyone else is stuck on superficial impressions, you can focus on more important things like the layout of the rooms and whether the home was well-maintained.
If your home needs a fresh coat of paint, give us a call. We'll be happy to give you a free estimate.
