Here's an idea for the color shy (self included): Dressers painted in an array of cheery colors (or in gray, for the truly color avoidant) in stealth locations, such as drawer interiors and drawer sides. Afterall, who doesn't like a surprise? Above: An array of colors are revealed when the drawers of this dresser are opened. A design is by French custom furniture company Bulle , it's shown in the home of Céline Vernier profiled on Bloesem .   Above: A drawer interior painted in Annie Sloan Chalk Paint , an idea spotted on the Annie Sloan blog . For more on her paints, see our post:  Instant Patina: Annie Sloan Chalk Paint . Above: A single shade of gray (Benjamin Moore's  Mysterious by Ben Interior Paint, $36.99 a gallon) adds a surprise touch to a midcentury pale wood dresser spotted on  Our Humble Abode .
