I bought this wrapping paper at Old Navy that had all the colors I love. Plus it was a hexagonal pattern which I like for it's vintage feeling. Because I get a lot of sun in this room I feel I can get away with such crazy colors.
We have lovingly dubbed our bungalow "The Sunset House" for the gorgeous light show that takes place in our living room every night at dusk. Then we painted a setting sun on the front door to remind our guests where they are at all times.
Blue and green are simply my favorite colors! The bright colors on the upholstered chair inspired me to pull the red for the chevron chairs and a pair of side tables. (I love the combination of bright red and turquoise blue...)
The room was originally yellows and grays but painting the walls nearly black was all it took to start adding bright pops in a primary palette. I added the Chiang Mai Dragon fabric to plain lamp shades and painted the canvas to tie it all together.
We wanted to unite the cabinets and the wall, and had used the deep teal in the past, when it was called "Pirates Cove." It's bold but it feels good! We made the concrete countertops and thought they would look best in their "natural" hue...a light grey.
