Small House w/ 2 Bedrooms

Create New Topic
Showing 1 - 1 of 1 Comments


When I say that this house is small, I mean it's really REALLY small. You walk in through the front door and you can see the living room, the two bedrooms, the kitchen, the laundry room, and the bathroom all at once as soon as you walk in. It's just really small, so we're wondering what the best way to work with it would be.

~How would we make the floor-plan appear more open and feel bigger?
~What colors accent muted oranges and yellows nicely without being overly distracting?
~What colors in your opinion make a space friendly and welcoming?

~The house has ugly paneling which we are planning on getting rid of and hanging drywall instead. We'll need color choices for that. ^^
~Our hardwood floor is sepia toned, with little bits of ochre in it too. Until we have the money, we're also stuck with ugly beige carpet that has a plethora of random colors strewn in it. The kitchen will be a bedroom someday, but until then it has awful carpet in a weird shade of blue-green.
~The ceilings are white, with a very cool swirling pattern marked into it with plaster. Any pattern ideas for matching that?
~The bathroom seems to be leaning into the blue-zone. How to make that more obvious without it being in your face?

Any paint and style ideas for walls and furniture? My family and I are trying to figure out a nice theme that goes with what we have to work with. Help would be much appreciated ^^ Thankie~

I guess our default strategy now is ctrl+a, ctrl+c on a comment just in case we lose it without it being posted. Last week I had to re-write a comment 3 times before I learned. :P

My one wish through being patient while the bugs are worked out and the spammers run off is that management would make a short statement.

I am all for being patient while much needed changes are made to the site, but the complete absence of communication is very disturbing.
I feel it is a lack of respect towards the community to just leave us worrying and guessing every. bloody. time.

We have sat out weeks of CL not working because of DoS-Attacks, we've experienced several (for us: surprise) shut-downs as updates were implemented, we have grappled with the buggy fallout of many of these updates - and never a comment, a warning, a heads-up, an anything from anybody in charge.

Are we not worth being informed?

And now I sit and wait to see if this comment will actually be posted. I have not been able to comment anywhere, not even my own profile, for days.

Came back after being gone for 2 years to this disappointment, Also, once again, experienced issues with Seamless Light errors. Captchas are a pain in the butt (especially when they make you click though 3 pages of pics); however, I understand the need for them.

Have you tried another browser, like Google Chrome? I just tried Firefox and BPM (basic palette maker) worked fine and BPM also worked fine with Chrome. How about Photocopa? Have you tried making palettes that way? I'm just trying to help - I know it can be frustrating.

I understand you are. We're all frustrated. :)
I seemed able to make a basic palette in IE, but some of the pages on the site (like the homepage and login) take so long to load that they occasionally just lock up and stay blank. Other ones load quickly. I don't have Chrome on this computer, - I'd have to try it later on my laptop when I can access it.

TBH, I don't think I ever used Photocopa for my palettes. It never quite did what I wanted, and 90% of my palettes aren't based off photos.
