Cate & Roshen's "Maharaja Garden" Guest Bedroom

Name: Cate & Roshen
Location: Boston, Massachusetts
Type of Home: Loft Style, 2 bedroom condo

Color Inspiration: The Guest Bedroom is often used by Roshen's parents, who are from India, and during a color consultation with a local interior styling company, colorTHEORY, they noticed a set of Indian Posters hanging in the room and wanted to embrace this culture. It was important that Roshen's parents felt comfortable and sparked by the room all at the same time.

Color Inspiration continued: A strong desire for mid-century design is also quite apparent in our home and with our Interior Stylists, requested a current take on a vintage aesthetic. Our color inspiration was based on Modern Indian Interiors and a George Nelson Clock hung the wall.

Colors Used: Collectively we selected Benjamin Moore's Natura line, in the colors "Peacock Feather" for the walls, and "Bermuda Turquoise" for the doors and trim. colorTHEORY provided us with numerous and wonderful wallpaper options and enthusiastically we chose Graham and Brown's, "Viva" pattern.

Color Tip: We were encouraged to go bold and to keep an open mind. "The bigger the risk, the bigger the impact." As our Stylists also informed us of, it's best to choose 1, if not 2 complimentary colors for your main color, to achieve a cohesive look, without being overwhelming. A single color on its own is either too much, or too drab.
