There is no getting around it, when you build a house you have to paint it, which means you have to pick a color. Yes, the color of dried Sheetrock mud is appealing (on a recent sample board it was actually the color of choice!) but it has to be covered with something. What is the right color, the right shade, what does it say about you and your home?? I guess the best answer is that there is no right answer…just the right one for you. And…you can always re-paint!
