My strange connection to The Smurfs has left me in love with their electric-blue hue ever since I painted myself that shade from head to toe in order to become a real-life Smurfette. And with today’s long-awaited release of The Smurfs movie, I can’t get enough of blue. But as much as I fantasize about getting a little crazy and painting my walls electric blue or lipstick red, I always end up with a subdued color palette. Always. You’d think if I can sport electric-blue body paint to break a Guinness World Record that I could at least handle adding some boldness to my walls. So, what’s your take on eye-popping color in design?

If I handed you a gallon of electric-blue paint, would you daringly take it to the walls or play it safe by painting an accent chair in the corner?

    For me blue is an iffy color, but I love electric blue. I would take a chance and paint an entire room, but only a small one like a powder room — I think I could live with an electric blue powder room.
