Room for Color Contest

Brooklyn, NY
Inspiration for my palette:
When we moved into our apartment, the dining room had just been painted this light green color. A few months later, I coincidentally recovered the dining room chairs with green fabric. It sparked a trend. I moved a green chair into the corner of the room. Then I sewed a green curtain to hide our bikes. And then I bought some green lamps. Our dining room is now officially the green room.
Colors used in my room
Greens and browns.
Tips for using color successfully
I had never thought of combining different shades of the same color before I put this room together, but I love the effect. And it's an easy look to pull off. Basically anything green goes.
