I knew I wanted a dark dining room and fell in love with the combination of deep green paint and gold leopard velvet I used to reupholster the vintage chairs. When I found the large-scale colorful floral fabric for the curtains, I knew that it was exactly what I needed to pull all my colors together.
Colors used in my room:
Martha Stewart "Chard" green on the walls, gold, red.
Tips for using color successfully:
I've learned that being timid with colors doesn't work for my style and I've come to embrace my love of color. If you need a starting point for mixing colors, find a fabric or piece of art you love and let it help guide your color decisions for the room.
