orange closet

When I decorate, I tend to lean towards earthy colors - I like the browns and reds. It's rare that I pick a bright color, unless as an accent piece or something. For some reason, this house has me turned upside down. My family thinks I'm nuts and they man wants to put a hazardous waste sign on the hall closet. Every bedroom in this house is a different shade of blue.
The master bedroom has two pink walls and two baby blue walls. The kitchen/living/hall are actually two different shades of green. We've decided to live with the colors as they are until we are able to spend some time on each individual room and make the place our own. That being said, we have a closet in the hall that we think used to house the water heater and I thought it would be fun to paint it orange. I couldn't live with this color in my living room, but it's a pretty color and I thought it would be a cute little wink to whoever opens the closet. I forgot to take beforfe pictures, but the first pic was taken after I had primed the space. The second is the first coat of the orange. It needs another coat, but I love it. I think I'll do the coat closet and the linen closet in the same color :)
