I will give them credit for using one color palate in a variety of ways to give each room an individual or unique 'feel' while remaining part of the whole house. I just don't think I would
I too feel less is more. I like being in a 'quiet" room and remaining free to engage in whatever activity is of interest, rather than being engaged in the atmosphere of the room. Sort of reminds me of a 1990's Applebees, or TGI Fridays. LOL
I believe that we have indeed gotten so used to bland that it's what we expect. Having bought and sold houses over all the years I've moved around the country, I do know that people expect bland, though they warm up to comfortable and non-offensive colors, so I usually let my art work bring the color into the room and pick some flesh tone or soft tone that is common in the works to paint the walls. I would love LOVE love to paint a house that really reflected what I needed and felt--but no one would buy it unless they saw the 'potential' of the house or related to the colors the way I would. Oh well...I will keep putting up 'interesting' artwork on neutral walls...
Am in the middle of having reno work done so that the house can be put on the market. What bothers me is that I am putting in what is popular (not what *I* like necessarily) and every ad for a sale house reads that it has the same things: bronze fixtures and stainless steel kitchen appliances--two things that would not attract me even if they are tres chic and en vogue.
