I am painting Allie's Room an nice beige color (the same carmel color we have in the rest of the house). Previously it had been that wonderful 2 color (my past obsession ~ Wallpaper in the middle with two different colors on top and bottom halves of the wall) with border. Looking at the almost finished room which is now one color, I commented to Jeff that it made the room look bigger. Jeff kind of snorted in that stupid man way and stated that the room was still the same size! I realize that, but there is a illusion of a larger room when it is all one neutral color! I guess you just can't see that if you are a male.
