  1. It is inspirational for someone who paints to see other paintings for ideas! I love all of the color schemes and your descriptions on which walls the paintings would work best for! Sounds like you really have a knack for it! I think my favorite would be the orange flower painting! 

    1. Hello Randi. Yes.. I have been painting for many years and I love changing things up in my home. Everytime I paint I want to redecorate also. Thank you for viewing my page. 

  2. Hi Ginger, I was happy to find your blog post to give guidance on how to decorate with colors. I was recently at a beach house that had light yellow walls and I just loved them. The house place seemed so bright and cheery! My kitchen is currently blue and white, and I’ve considered painting the walls yellow – after reading this I think I’ll try it 🙂

    1. Yellow would be gorgeous. I would go with a canary yellow. You could throw in the blues with the yellow. You could use reds or oranges and grays as well. It will definitely brighten up your kitchen. Thank you for your feedback and interest. Any question.. Feel free to ask. Have a great day! 

  3. Wow, I absolutely adore the wall art. The examples you provided are just magnificent. In that regard, I felt like having an orange wall in my flat now, haha. Really loved that art example.

    Ginger, is it true that any of these will still work with white walls? I imagine though that the visual pleasantness might not be as well expressed, however, that piece you provided as an example for orange walls truly spoke to me. I need something like that. And I do have a white wall. In that sense, I can always paint it orange, haha! 🙂

    Either way, I appreciate the article and the insights!

    Cheers, and have a Great One, Ginger!


    1. Hello matiss. Yes, the orange wall is gorgeous. My living room walls are orange. I’m sure it will be gorgeous either color you decide to go with but the orange will definitely give it a lot of character. It’s also very calming. If you decide to stay with white walls, you could definitely bring the wall to life with any of the wall art in the post. I would go with colors that will match up with some of your furniture or decor. If you have any questions, let me know. I’ll be glad to help. Thank you. You have a blessed day! 

  4. Hey, Ginger, just wanted to share the fact that I really enjoyed the article. Most of our walls in our house are of belge color. Thus, I do subscribe to the fact that the illusion of an ocean would be amazing. In that regard, I will look at some actual ocean pictures as well. I believe that might be exactly the tweak that we are missing in our home. 

    Other than that, I also liked the example of blue wall art. We have a few spots of blue in our kitchen. I imagine it might work really well. Be as it may, I’ll discuss this with my husband and if he’s up for it, we’ll make a purchase through your links. 🙂

    Have an awesome day, ahead!
