Office blues

My office walls are blue, a holdover from Kirsten's decorating days. Under her deep rich colors hide little hand prints from when Timo and Jono shared the room. The boys dipped their hands in paint and placed them on the wall in lieu of wallpaper. It was bright and cheerful. (But not something Kirsten could live with when she moved in!)

I love color and am grateful to a God who created it and gave us eyes to enjoy it. But I haven't repainted the room to a shade of my own. My office organizer asked why I was keeping the blues. No other room in our house has blue paint, though I love white and blue schemes in magazines. Partly nostalgic, partly happy with one less chore, the color remains. But I'm thinking of moving on. 
  • Pure white? None of our other rooms has this either.
  • Green? Already have one. Too laid back.
  • Red? Too energetic.
  • Yellow? Most of the house has a yellow tint. Maybe a brighter shade?
For now, my office is staying with the blues.  I'd love to hear what your favorite office color is. Suggestions please!

*I will proclaim the name of the Lord, O praise the greatness of our God! He is the Rock, His works are perfect, and all His ways are just. A faithful God who does no wrong, upright and just is He. Deuteronomy 32:3, 4 NIV

*Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful.

Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom, and as you sing psalms, hymns and spiritual songs with gratitude in your hearts to God. And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him. Colossians 3:15-17 NIV
