I agree about don't rush BO. My Mum and Dad have built and decorated quite a few homes over the years. They have done teal doors, yellow doors, you name it they have tried it - however now after all the many experiences that they have had - they will say paint all your walls an off white or quiet bland/neutral colour, and then use all sorts of amazing colours to dress up the rooms. ie black bed covers, or red towels, different coloured throw over the couch, amazing things on the walls.
In my new wee cave we have sort of done the same, and am loving being able to change a room with a bedcover. I certainly can't afford to buy things regularly but can change the guest bedroom, or my bedroom with the old swapsies.
I really do agree with Joanie thou - don't rush, and if you get the chance, if you are out shopping or visiting - take pickies of what YOU like !!!!!!
................... and above all else keep us posted with progress pickies !!!!!!!
