Color, Color Everywhere!

In the next couple of months, I plan to do some painting. I want to paint the girls' bathroom and play table. I want to paint the kitchen table and chairs. I want to paint an old hope chest I inherited from my great uncle. I'd like to paint my office desk, but that behemoth may have to wait for another burst of inspiration and energy.

With all this urge to paint, I've been checking out a lot of color palettes online (and by online I mean Pinterest). There are a lot of great color combos, but sometimes you need to go and create your own. So here are a few I did in the last couple of days.

What do you think? Is it too much color? (What?! There's no such thing as too much color when there are kiddos around!!)

I like this one for our family room. We currently have a red sofa, so I'd like everything to be near neutral.

I think I'm starting to like pink...uh oh. I like this color combo for the girls' room  when they get a bit bigger and we move to twin beds.

I've decided the girls will have a purple bathroom. I'm still tossing around colors to go with the deep purple walls. This one is sitting well with me. (Notice how that darn pink popped up again.)

This super bright happiness would be in my office. I don't think Tim could handle colors like this in any other room. Granted, I think I'm halfway there with the first three colors already incorporated.
