It seems like when many people are working on the interior design of their home a primary thought is how their decisions will affect resale. I get it. For most people their house is their biggest asset, and so the price it sells for somewhere in the future matters so much. But when you prioritize the supposed opinion of future owners you end up neutralizing and diluting any personal style for yourself while you live there. Some people place a lower priority of how their home looks or works because they care more about other things in life. Fine! This isn't for you. And my products probably aren't designed with you in mind either. This is for people who have discerning taste and care deeply about their interior space.
Stop neutering your design aesthetic to appease supposed future owners of your space.

Enjoy the space you're in now. Make it what you want. People want a look that will last, as if one can style a house for forever. You can't. It won't last. All trends change. Just make it as awesome as you can for now. Understand that if you want to be on the cutting edge of cool that means constantly adjusting and restyling. Think of what will make you happy right now in your life, and do that. And if you're so concerned about resale you can just beige everything the week before you sell. But my guess is that you won't. Once you make your space truly interesting, different, adventurous, there's no point in whitewashing it to sell. Just leave it awesome, and the character will help differentiate you from all the other cookie cutter homes.
Where's the fun in playing it safe? Do something cool for once. I'm getting tired of seeing so much classy grey.
Also painting your front door a fun color doesn't count. Please try harder.
