Painting rooms the same colours again

lcmort's picture

We have rooms in our house that have been terra cotta and some olive green for about seven years. It is now time to re-paint, but I still like those colours. Are they still "in" and is it OK to paint the rooms the same colours yet again. Thx

If you don’t have any problem to repaint it in same/previous color then paint it because ultimately you need to stay there. Otherwise paint it in different color to get new and fresh look.

Thank you Mrs. Peacock, that is the exact reply I was looking for. I just needed to hear someone say it...other than me. I totally agree with your trend comment as well. They seem to come and go so quickly. I've seen people totally re-do their whole house, and by the time they are done the trend is "done" as well. Thanks again!
