Don't Cry For Carnelian

You'll think it strange
When I try to explain
After all that I've done
I had to let it happen
I had to try the Carnelian

Couldn't stay all of my life
Looking down at the tile
Looking out of the window
Staring out at the sun
So I had to try the Carnelian

Running around trying everything new
But nothing impressed me at all
I never expected it too

Don't cry for Carnelian
The truth is I never left the bathroom.

Don't cry for Carnelian
It is illusion
It is not the solution
The promise to be
Was not meant for me
The answer was here all the time

Please keep your distance
I'll keep my promise

Now shoo.

It won't be the Carnelian
Don't cry

I'm confused by all this color. Of course, I like the green.

(Hey, my word verification word is cathitch. Better count the kitties to make sure none of them have hitched a ride anywhere!)

Holy Cow, what kind was that?
Your colors are looking good.

LOL! This is developing into a real novel; can't wait to read(and see) the ending!

Carol all this color has confused me to no end as well.

Lola I'm guessing it was a rat snake of some kind.

Bev the answer is the living room kitchen will be the Marigold, lighter orange on the right. The bathroom will be the green Apple 5. Now I have to decide between a yellow, "Cowslip" and an unknown blue for the loft/basement patio ceiling.

Hi Christopher! I love all your color selections. Can't wait to see the rooms painted! I would shoo myself inside if I caught sight of that snake.

It is getting cozier by the minute. Love all that color and the glass tile is delicious.

OK, the carnelian in whatever little space you have behind the cabinets in the kitchen. That will supply the pop and the contrast for all that wood and it is a warm tone that blends.But the cool counter top color would have to go.
The marigold for the rest of the kitchen and the main living space, assuming that the warm golden tone is true. It looked golden in one picture and more orange in another
I am not sure about the green for the bathroom. Maybe the marigold in 10 shades lighter as it is a small space and needs light. but, I would have to see it against the chosen tiles.
Again, all my walls are white, so what do I know?

Love you, Robin

Siria that snake is your neighbor.

Well Jim I was at the point where I thought I could just have the walls be a collection of samples.

Layanee that 1 x 1 glass tile is going to look sharp in the shower with the glass block shower wall.

Robin I shouldn't let you have an opinion until you make Glen paint just one room in your house, the dining room say. My cool counter top is here to stay unless when it is time to order they say "No have." The Marigold changes color depending on the light like all these colors do. Sometimes it is a golden yellow, sometimes a more light pumpkin orange.

Please tell me it is an over the mountain neighbor and not a next door neighbor!
