I just love bright colors, but my plate collection has really allowed me to have an excuse to add any color to the mix. The color palate for it is wide open. I have been adding to the collection for over 10 years.
Colors used in my room:
I used a lot of cool blues as a base, the walls are a light blue grey, and some of the painted items are darker colors, ranging from cobalt to navy. I love citruses as accents: orange and yellows are my favorites! Lately I have started trying to work kelly green into the mix. It is a fun accent.
Tips for using color successfully:
If you love it who cares. I personally hate lavender but I know people that love it. It is your house so do what makes you happy, even if it is lavender from top to bottom.
