Want to Paint?

White walls keep the wind out, yes. But Louisiana Cajun Crawfish Orange is a statement from your soul.

Perhaps. But please, wait before you paint the walls. Read your lease first. Then read it again — are there any prohibitions against painting or altering the apartment?

Yes? Then hang some prints and live with it. But if you see an opening, ask your landlord. If he's uneasy you might soften him up by promising to paint just one or two walls.

Get agreements in writing — you should both keep signed copies. Then buy brushes, masking tape, and drop cloths.

We can't help you justify the color to your girlfriend.
