The color wheel got a workout within a 1992 brick home in Stafford. Its candy-colored rooms are as varied as a bag of gumballs . . .
The living room (above) has a peach cream filling feeling that also oozes into the family room:
In the kitchen, Skittle yellow makes the first of several eye-popping appearances . . .
All 4 bedrooms are upstairs, where the master suite’s color choice also opted for lemon drop:
The 2,101-sq.-ft. home has 3 secondary bedrooms sporting Air Head paint shades, from grape . . .
to cherry . . .
to (more) citrus:
The shared bathroom, meanwhile, rolls out the blueberry:
There’s also a half-bath, which splits the finish with minty tones of berry-berry:
Somehow, this frosty-finished mixed-use room off the kitchen dodged a cheery hue:
Or is it a sign of things to come? The listing says the sellers will be painting rooms to a neutral color. Egads! If the candy colors speak to you, you’ll want to get moving on this property before that happens. Or before the price changes again.
But for the lawn, green appears to be the only color missing from the hue-soaked home. It’s in the asking price, though, which also has varied. When initially listed, right before Christmas 2013, the asking price was $94,900. A week later, it ballooned to $158,900 for about a month before scaling back to $151,900 toward the end of January. Two days later, it dropped again, to $148,900, which is where things remain for the rainbow-roomed residence. Its 5,600-sq.-ft. lot is just down the street from Stafford’s cluster of intermediate, middle, and high schools.
