From Kate Norman: "This is a great entry because it presents a myriad of colors in an interesting way. Instead of simply using paint this individual applied color (and may I add beautiful texture) with slate tile. It is a bold statement but grounded because the colors are earth tones and everything else is kept simple... The look is organic yet graphic due to the large mosaic grid pattern of the wall. The only suggestion I would make, would be to paint the opposite wall one of the darker tones of the tile wall( the copper hue would be a nice choice) to balance the room out. Keep the light side walls but there needs to be a counter balance to the dramatic tile on the other side. Overall conceptually, this space reminds me of a childhood family road trip where I saw the grand canyon at sunset. Beautiful!
