well it`s Safer that way, and I get Zero Interferance shall we say :)

although it`s only door is from inside the house, that suits me, it`s still a NO-GO area :)
it`s a Skywalk building, so only held up at 2 ends (less noise that way).

Mine Mine Mine I tell you!!!!! :)

What a cool thread! I'm almost afraid to answer this one because it will reveal so much about me!

YT, your description of your bedroom made me laugh. Its like you were describing my room. Ken's side is orderly and neat, and my night table makes him cringe. There are books piled high all over it and around it. Neat IMO, but not his. LOL.

ChefJune, we don't have any white walls left either. I noticed a while ago that every bedroom is painted a different shade of blue. The girls each picked an ocean colour. (One has Spongebob decor, and the other an undersea/dolphin motif). Our bedroom colour was matched from a photo of us on a catamaran on our honeymoon. Sigh, I loved that trip. The living areas of the house are different earth tones. The kitchen (which you can see on the Kitchen thread) is a creamy colour with a hint of peach in it to go with the swirls in my floor tiles. The living room and hallway are Monroe Bisque (love that name) which is a bit darker. And the basement is a dark gold with navy accents.

As to the decor, well I guess you could call it "comfortable". I grew up in a place where it was OK to put your feet up and thats how I want people to feel when they come in. Kick off your shoes, let me get you a drink and some munchies and snuggle down on the couch so we can chat. Its always a bit untidy, and there is pet hair everywhere despite my best efforts, but you can feel the love and peace in our house and thats just how I like it.

I love this thread! Alix - I love the idea of colormatching from your trip! WOW!

My home is still a work in progress, but with the rooms that are pretty much done, they reflect us! My formal living room is a beautiful pale aqua ...well, here - you can see it:




My office upstairs is a match to the living room as well.

My kitchen and family room is the color of when the sunshine hits a pale wall. It's warm and sunny, more casual. Black couches with chocolate accents, and pine wood. The bar is near there too, and it's coordinating as well.

My bedroom's got black iron furniture (kinda swirly), white trim and deep red linens. We're thinking of changing them out to white and painting the walls the deep red instead. (The walls are 16' high, so I'm kind of putting it off!) The fireplace is old brick, but I'd like to put a white mantle over it.

I like to have everything organized and in it's place. The only exception is my stack of paperwork on one of the office tables. It's always there!

I like everyone's place! I just feel best when I know my housework is done!

(what I failed to mention is that my kids are both doing the "beyond-lived-in" look in their rooms. They get good grades, and are nice kids. I give them quite a bit of leeway.)

Does my home reflect my personality? Very interesting question!
Never thought about it.
Or maybe does my home reflect my life?
Are they the same?

Have to think about this...Maybe drink some bourbon tonight and ponder these questions..

Very beautiful living/dining room Miss Jkath...elegant, refined, very graceful..I approve!
