I knew I wanted to create an ambient space that was dark and romantic. The French film "Amelie" was probably the main inspiration with its rich colors and bohemian whimsy. Painting the walls a dark blue allowed me to use color in a very bold way that was both calming and visually stimulating.
Colors used in my room:
Dark blue walls with yellows, greens, oranges, and reds accented throughout.
Tips for using color successfully:
Go with your gut. If it makes sense visually and makes your heart sing, then you're probably doing something right. One of my favorite things to do is sit on my bed at night and just take in the striking burst of colors and beauty that is encompassed within things like my tapestry, bookshelf, record player and artwork.
