When the day is done and I'm in my relaxation mode slouched into my recliner with a glass (or two) of wine in my hand, I like to watch mindless stuff.
Like reruns of Mike and Molly.
And anything on HGTV.
The big thing on HGTV now is these total gut jobs of old nasty houses that are turned into The Home of Your Dreams. I watch these shows curious to note what features they consider gutable.
Carpeting in favor of hardwood floors.
Tile instead of vinyl.
Maple cabinets instead of oak.
Granite instead of laminate.
In my wine induce haze, I suddenly realize my entire house would be considered a gut job. I also notice that when they're shopping these crappy houses, they give them nicknames.
Which got me to thinking. If my house was on one of these shows, what would be it's name?
As I look around, I notice that I really gravitate towards a warm color palate.
Most of my house is decorated in yellows, reds and greens.
Hm...Mustard, catsup and relish.
The Condiment House!
Even the new exterior colors I bought trend towards these colors.
I never thought about it before.
It seems that the HGTV color palate is full of gray, white and a soft sage green or soft blue. All of those colors are pretty but too cold for me.
What about you? What would you name your house if it was on HGTV?
