Color me appalled at the paint choices in this otherwise charming Victorian house, which recently went on the market. While I don't like the popular staging technique of painting every room stark white, I feel this goes a little too far in the opposite direction.
Khaki walls, mustard trim, turquoise fireplace? And what is that lime-green fence thing on the left? At least they didn't attack their ceilings or floors. *
Red, yellow, orange, and white kitchen... with acid green accent wall. Is that crooked masking tape or paint under those shelves and crooked pictures?
I thought I loved every pantry on earth, but not this one.
What happened to those poor steps? And, just in general, what the hell happened here?
Note the mustard-yellow baseboard below that coral wall....
1. Family is color-blind.
2. Family doesn't really want to sell; hopes to scare buyers without actually wrecking anything.
3. Family previously lived in pure-white-walled house. Misinterpreted real-estate agent's advice to "Add a little color to make the detailing pop."
4. Family gets great deals on returned paint at local Benjamin Moore dealer.
5. Family includes permissive parents who let their children roam free with paint rollers and brushes on dull weekends.
Please feel free to add your own thoughts....
