      My walls in my room are pale yellow too! I love it! I have some exposed I beams in my
      ceiling that are red and blue too. Unforunatley, the tiles in the hallway are seafoam
      green....a real downer for hanging artwork (although the students use the grout lines to
      hang work evenly!)
