i have a blue refrigerator. i bought it myself because my husband just thought it was too crazy to support the idea. of course, it has grown on him. actually, i get more comments from men about it then from women. i think because it looks like a nostalgic old car. it is even painted in car paint, which i learned when i tried to customize my color - i had to go to auto body shops to view paint samples! which was not fun, as i was lugging two babies all over town to do it. but i love the soft blue color, so well worth it i guess.
when we bought the frig, my cabinets were white, but we moved a year ago into a home that had dark wood kitchen cabinetry. i lived with them for almost a year because everyone just gasped when i would say i was going to paint such beautiful wood. but i held true to my beliefs, and several months ago the cabinets turned into a soft gray/green (martha stewart quill to be exact). my refrigerator has a very funny photogenic self, it always looks bright blue so the pictures against the cabinets are not flattering. but in real life, the blue and gray/green are very nice together.
unfortunately (or fortunately?), as painting always tends to do, i think now i need to change the color of a few adjacent chairs and change out the curtains that come so close to it to make it right. i will have to show a before/after photo when i get it just so...
