    I don't paint with wild colors. I use only Williamsburg Reproduction paints in my 99 year old house.

    Too many extreme colors and color pallette changes can be stressful especially on children. I prefer tastefully muted and calming color pallettes. For example yellow is a color that is over stimulating to babies. It creates stress and makes them cry alot. How many people do you think still paint a nursery in shades of 'happy sunny yellow'?

    I happen to think builder's beige is a fabulous color. [​IMG]

    I have had yellow nursery walls without an issue. I think it might depend on the kid.

    I am not into bright colors, either. I like earth tones. I'm really, really boring. [​IMG]

    I don't have any wild colors either. I like neutral colors. Khakis, sages, browns, etc.
    If I get really creative when we refinish the dining room, I'd like to paint it a deep maroon color.

    After many years of colors on the walls, I've gone completely neutral, lol. We just moved into our new home and I decided to redo my entire decor. I love the clean feeling of neutrals. I use Eddie Bauer paint from Lowes.
    Now with my first child I had quite a bit of yellow in our house then, and never had a problem with a fussy baby, guess she was the exception![​IMG]

    On the main floor, all of the walls are off white with the exception of the great room. The walls are dark green. It has a tray ceiling, and the part that slopes is tan, with white on the flat part.

    On the lower level, the second kitchen is yellow and the spare bedroom is sage.
