#12-Nicole's Subtle Vintage

Name: Nicole Location: Echo Park Type: 1 Bedroom Why I use color: While I shy away from bold color when it can result in sensory overload, I definitely geek out over amazing hues and color combinations applied properly. Working with a rented apartment in an old structure such as mine is tough as there is no ability to swap out dreary tile, old appliances, or fix less than perfect surfaces. Therefore I relied on color in my kitchen to use the existing vibe to my advantage and make otherwise dull items pop. Fashion and art are a source of continuous inspiration, from the Fall07 Prada ads to Los Angeles graffiti. Most of my accent pieces are treasures from thrift stores since I'm young, furniture-less and broke - this is actually the first kitchen of my own! Overall, I just like to giggle a bit when I walk into a room.
2 Good color tips: 1 - Don't force vibrant color on the walls just for the sake of playing with color. 2 - Shell out the extra money if necessary for the perfect hue - if you can sense the difference on a swatch it will definitely impact the mood of the room once it's on the walls. Favorite type and brand of paint: Lovvvving Ralph Lauren Vintage Masters
