When Alex moved into his cozy and bright uptown New Orleans rental apartment, he was faced with great architectural bones—beautiful wood floors, big windows, two fireplaces and more. What wasn't so hot? The builder beige colored walls mixed with other colors that did really work together and made the place seem darker than it needed to be.
Rather than pick and choose a complementary array of colors for each room, he chose one good, light, warm color that created cohesion throughout the entire apartment and brightened the place up. It also proves to be a great canvas for his varied art collection.
I think it was smart also because so much of the apartment can be seen from each room. And though I'm not sure if this was intended, but the space is anything from boring thanks to the different light levels pouring into the rooms from the windows; the rooms appear to be slightly different shades of the same soothing color.
Though it's not probably the right solution for folks who love their walls splashed with a variety of colors, if you're stressed out about having to make wall paint color choices or have a similar need for cohesion like Alex, you might be able to save yourself some stress by going with one solid color throughout.
