Today’s More About You Monday is a plea for your most expert interior decorating skills.

Our new house will be a blank slate. The walls are all cream. (We are renting so most likely the walls will stay cream.) The majority of the main floor is tile and wood. We have sold or given away most of our furniture and decorations so we will be starting from scratch.

I’m planning to search Craigslist and consignment shops for furniture. I’m imagining finding a sturdy wooden desk for $20 and painting it orange or teal or red or yellow or hot pink! (Dave, I won’t paint your desk hot pink.) I need color in my life.

So, what do you think? If you had a blank canvas, what colors would you choose? Kitchen? Bathrooms? Bedrooms? Living room? Dining room?
