Well Margaret you most likely wouldn't like my house then.  We have 
a middle blue kitchen with white cupboards and floor.  A plaid (navy 
and deep green/tan) wallpapered 2 pc bath off the kitchen hall.  
Aside from kitchen and baths all floors are hardwood with area 
carpets (mostly a solid colour)
A Tan/beige ragged (top) and striped(lower half - like wainscotting. . 
. but all done with paint) dining room and a tan living room both have 
a tanny rose area capet.  Upstairs we have a rose painted and 
wallpapered guest room, master is blue wallpaper, daughter is 
shades of blue sponged over pale blue and sons is deep green with 
a paler shade ragged over.  Upstairs bath is navy blue and white. 
Basement has a Rec room with a mossy green carpet and pale 
peach coloured walls  with a peach and green wallpapered bath next 
to it. 

I can put deeper coloured wallpaper on easier than I can the deep 
coloured paint :))  Obviously my children are not as colour 
challenged as I am.
