Colors

Ok I’m gonna start with colors.  A simple way that I remember the colors is the mnemonic device Roy G. Biv.  And so each part of the mnemonic device stands for a certain color.  So I’ll start with Roy.  That’s red, orange and then yellow.  G, which stands for green.  And then BIV, which is blue, indigo and violet.

The colors in my house growing up were pretty diverse.  My mom is an interior decorator, so she loves colors.  She loves matching colors.  She loves intricate designs.  So, the colors in my house were or are, the living room is a pale orange color, and it has wallpaper that’s textured and off-white couches and blue pillows with a little bit of orange.  And the dining room has wall paper, again, but it’s a yellow or gold, more like gold, gold with a pattern, and all of the furniture is wood, hardwood, dark color like mahogany.  And the kitchen has black countertops and white cabinets and there’s a lot of light, so it makes all the colors jump out.

The outside of my house is a forest green, dark green color, and the porch and the steps are kind of a yellowish type.  The house used to be blue, but I had it repainted and now it’s the dark green.  When you first walk into my house, you notice a whole bunch of different colors.  I don’t particularly care for just plain white walls, so when you walk into the foyer, you notice the cream-colored or very, very light tan.  Uh, woodwork, the walls are green.  The floor is a brown tile, sticky tile that you put down.  The living room is a combination of browns and greens and tan.  There’s also a mural on the, one of the walls of a forest scene.  I have some outdoor things indoors.  I have some fake vines and plants inside the living room.  And on one of the larger windows on each side I have actually outdoor shutters, which kind of gives it a nice outdoor feeling.  The upstairs bedrooms, one bedroom is blue and the other bedroom right now is not too much of any color.  It has to be redone and painted.  The bathroom again has earth tones in it.  The kitchen is, again everything is earth tones, the greens, the browns, the yellows.  Also, in the bathroom, there is yellow also.  The woodwork is a bright yellow.  And, uh, it tends to brighten things up.  Like I said, I don’t particularly care for plain white walls.  I like to be able to see color when I walk in.
