It used to, then I moved and rented it out for a while. Now the leaving room and dining room kind of do. Green, brown, red, wood tones, basic earth tones. Not really what I wanted but it worked out that way. The bedrooms still need work, its been a year, I have to get moving on it.

For once in my life someone else created my house and I actually love it. The bedrooms are the only thing that will change to fit all the kids personallities. I haven't decided on the Master suite yet. I hate to sound lie I am bragging but this house is truelly my dream house and my husband bought it for me for our anniversary. It is beautiful Italian Marble floors and counters throughout. Beautiful colors throughout. The entire back of the house is giant windows that faces the ocean. I love my house. My dream kitchen I can entertain the way I have always loved to. I can't wait until I step into it on Sunday.

I need to get some good pictures up. All the pics we have up are boring or in crap frames.

Tarah and Tyler have decorated the inside of our house beautifully. We have a liquid make-up hand print in my room and Tarah has written her name in the hallways and there are stickers everywhere. It looks just lovely. ha ha

Yes, to a point. It's eclectic, but complementary. I'm not a fan of the overly "matchy matchy" and I love bright colors and unexpected things.

The "bones" of our home are neutral--taupe walls, white trim, distressed hardwoods from an architectural recycler, and custom tile in sandstone with glass accents.

The furniture is a mixture of post modern and rustic antique. I LOVE the way the clean lines of the post modern pieces, like my dark brown leather sofa & Japanese chair, contrast with the old hardwood floors and the antique trunk we use as a coffee table.

I add splashes of color with throw pillows, picture frames, and artwork. I like to keep the color theme loose enough that I can put in souvenirs from our travels, family photos, and artwork that I love without having to worry about it clashing with anything.

I do have a bright green iron end table that I LOVE and have used the same bright green on frames and vases through the house. I also used a very beautiful dusty blue color for pillows and have painted a small accent wall that color, but it is almost a gray and doesn't clash with much.

I LOVE decorating......can you tell?

No, but I can't wait to decorate when we get an actual house instead of an apartment.

Our house is this beautiful pinky whitey colour (very light maybe beige) and for some reason green blinds and counters (don't like them), very light apricot carpet all the way through except kitchen (lino) and bathroom, toilet and laundry (tiled) with white ceilings, brick with a red roof. I love this house. But our furniture etc. is not in a theme. Our lounge room furniture leaves a lot to be desired. The dining room is very old school so is the nursery where Renae sleeps and our lounge room is more modern stuff

My house is earth tones. Soft greens, tan/yellows, browns, and a little blue. All accented with contemporary straight lines in black and dark brown (think shelves, picture frames, geometric boxes and tables, even the furniture has straight lines while being super fluffy). And I decorated with bamboo items.

Even though it has a contemporary's really homey and relaxing because those are just the accents.

Eh...old and new. Is that a theme? We inherited numerous lovely antiques ten years ago and it has been the greatest challenge to blend them with modern design.

I love burnt orange too! It's one of my favorites. It makes the downstairs feel soooo cozy!

No Not really, My bedroom and the kids rooms do but not the general areas of the house

The downstairs does, black and burnt orange. The upstairs, besides our son's room is so random.

Mine doesn't really yet. We moved into a new home (mobile home) in April and although the colors are pretty, it's just not me. I can't wait to get my hands on some paint lol. My kids' rooms have themes. My son's is Alabma football and hunting, my daughter's is Disney Princess. That's as far as I've gotten so far lol.
