That I can agree on!

I guess I've lived in too many places with very limited housing inventory comprised of mainly old homes and loads of compromises for various reasons - e.g. rules for historic listed homes, building practicalities for old homes, practicalities of awkward urban footprints, etc. Even big budgets don't seem to relieve me the need to compromise in all kinds of ways.

I've had to learn not to go in 'HATING' things. Either I'd be homeless or I'd have a rough life living with so much hate in my life.

back when beige was the trend, everything looked like dirt and diarrhea.
It was overwhelming. People picked nasty adobe brown colors.

people thought white paint made the home look like a mental hospital.
Renters would ask me if they could paint the walls. I said no. WTF is wrong with white?

To these people, I tell them to hang pictures on the wall and decorate. I never understood why people hate white. It matches everything, and provides for the best blank canvas. and it's timeless.

Trends are for sheep.

I hate white. I used to have a friend who was an interior decorator. His homes were always white. He used to say, "I like color in other people's homes but, I don't want to live with it". No matter how much color my art has, hanging on a white wall, it's still just "blah" to me. I need some background color.
