they can't close down this thread now, because this is a genuine picture of home decoration wink

So, I want to decorate my kitchen.

At the moment it is a painted a luffly chocolate brown, I want to keep that colour but have on one wall a bit of statement wallpaper.

I am a big fan of blues but thought it should maybe have another colour.

So what goes with brown that isn't blue, but won't look out of place next to my cream-with-blue-accentuated (?) living room.

Please bear in mind, I live in a 2 bed house, I have 2 rooms downstairs - living room and kitchen.

it is important I get this right.

<hands midget gems around>

<pretends to be actually working and not MNing>

see, I had a genuine decorating question and now MNHQ can not delete Shaky's thread.

I want actual pictures. My budget is non-existant, so the cheaper the better.

I'm a bit more....vanilla when it comes to decor ie boring

nickeldaisical Wed 19-Sep-12 14:01:46

not even the middle one?

ooo, the last two are more my thing although I did want to move away from the blue as I have some kind of blue in every other room (I cant help it, its calming)

bloomin apostrophe key is off again, apologies for me bad grammar

I press it once, it does multiple apostrophes or nothing and then randomly works properly.


BrianCoxIsUpTheDuff Wed 19-Sep-12 18:06:34

Middle one reminds me of my nans wallpaper back in the early 80s! grin

I think we killed Shakys thread, we were only trying to help it not get deleted chum!!!

BrianCoxIsUpTheDuff Wed 19-Sep-12 18:19:00

Purple? That could work well?

Cant recall seeing any purple/brown colour schemes though.

My stupid kitchen isn't very swish, what with it being standard housing association (I long for stainless steel, shiny units and integrated budget says "get over yourself" grin )

This would look lufferly with chocolate brown:

RachelHRD Wed 19-Sep-12 18:54:44

Try again....

RachelHRD Wed 19-Sep-12 18:55:24

Aarrgghh - how do you post a picture? It previews OK but then when I post the pic isn't there!!

BrianCoxIsUpTheDuff Wed 19-Sep-12 18:56:06

<waits excitedly for RachelHRD pic>

BrianCoxIsUpTheDuff Wed 19-Sep-12 18:56:54

errr, I dont know - I just clicked the choose file link and selected pic, then posted message - no preview.

RachelHRD Wed 19-Sep-12 19:06:26

Here hopefully!!!

RachelHRD Wed 19-Sep-12 19:07:12

Hoorah! Or this....

BrianCoxIsUpTheDuff Wed 19-Sep-12 19:08:27

oooo, I like them both.

The 2nd is a bit too trendy, I am very beige in my tastes blush

the first one is beautiful!

Thanks smile

RachelHRD Wed 19-Sep-12 19:10:00

RachelHRD Wed 19-Sep-12 19:11:30
