We decided on aqua for the walls, which balanced the other hot colors, then painted a side table red, found this great gold and white rug and when Audrey was ready for a "big girl" room, found an interesting headboard and painted it red as well.
Despite all this color we addeed one more: black. The silhouette images we framed were hanging in my home when I was a child and seemed the perfect way to add graphic interest as well as incorporate some things with sentimental value.
Tip for Using Color: I think just about any hues can work together as long as the palette is balanced. In Audrey's room the white and aqua are a great balance to the red and gold resulting in a room that isn't too overstimulating. I also think it's great to go unconventional with color in all sorts of spaces, especially kids rooms. It creates some whimsy that makes the space fun.
Colors Used: Red, Gold, White and Aqua with Black accents
Thanks for your colorful entry Anneliese and good luck!
