Too Much Color?

I am starting to get scared that I have too much color in my house. I have a variety of paint cans in my closest now that give me pause. As I type this, my kitchen is half the color of RED. Now, don't get me wrong, I love all the colors in my house with the exception to my daughters room but I didn't pick out that color. It came with the house and she loves it. So I kept it.

My family and I are making plans to remodel and redecorate our den. I am having a very hard time picking a color for that room. I am going to go neutral I believe. I already have red, blue, chocolate brown, mocca, purple, gray, turquoise, hot pink, and lime green walls in one room or another. (See what I mean about maybe having too much color?) I need a nice warm tone color. I'm not sure what paint I'm going to get but I'm still looking.

Here are a couple of pictures of my den. I love how big this room is, just not the look of it. I don't really love the 1970's decorating, so out with the old and in with the new. I am fairly confident it will look better than how it looks now. We are planning on taking down the paneling, replacing the floors, putting up new trim and updating the wet bar. It will be a whole new room when we are finished.

This is the upstairs bathroom before and after. Baby blue and golden yellow walls. The bathroom still has the 1965 blue toilet and tub. We changed the light fixture and the towel fixtures and added a little paint to the walls and the counter top. We still need to replace the flooring. This is Kara's bathroom so I let her pick out the colors. It works for a teenagers bathroom.

What is missing from this picture?

What is missing from this picture?
My running shoes have not seen the road going on three weeks now? I am not lazy just doing other things and no just not showing up. So, this week at some point I better get my bum out on the road unless I want my bum to keep growing.
Also, if I really want to run the whole 5K in September I better keep up my training.
Here's to running. Road, I hope to see you real soon.
