Elizabeth's Apple of Her Eye

Room for Color - South #6

Name: Elizabeth
Location: North Charleston, South Carolina
Type of Home: single family home

Color Inspiration: One day, I was shopping and fell in love with a couch. I'd visit it at the store, sit on it, think about it, dream about it. So, I plunked down the money and bought it. I love it. From there, I found the curtains at ikea to tie in the new green couch with my existing red furniture. With the green and red, I felt the need for a calming, non-bright color to bring it all together and decided to paint the walls the aptly named 'tranquil pond.'

Give Elizabeth a THUMBS UP if you think this room belongs in the finals!

Colors Used: The walls are 'Tranquil Pond' by The Freshaire Choice. Early on, I decided to paint my home using only non-VOC paint - they have some great colors.

Color Tip: Find something you love, and wrap the room around it. But, stick to what's you. If tans and whites make you happy - go for it. To me, the goal is - when you open the door and step into your home at the end of the day, you should think "ah, home, love this place."
