Brigsby (due 12/16/10)
There really was no plan or inspiration. I just wanted chaos. Lots of colors and patterns and contrast. And I wanted to do it myself...so I hand stenciled the walls, painted the stripes and clouds, nailed birds to the ceiling. About half way through, the room kind of reminded me of a carnival and that made me happy. Instead of trying to find things that matched, I just went with whatever piqued my interest at the time...and I got the calm chaos I wanted from the very beginning.
Tip for Using Color: Look at everything individually to avoid the room being too matchy-matchy. As long as you love each individual rug/blanket/artwork/accessory it will all come together in a really surprising, unplanned way.
Colors Used: Teal, red, yellow, green, orange, purple, brown, black.
Thanks for your colorful entry Jamie and good luck!
