Name:
Elizabeth
Location:
Brooklyn, NY
Division:
Dark
Inspiration for my palette:
My vintage Asian wall pieces led me to choose the deep turquoise color on the wall. I knew the deep hue would be a beautiful backdrop to highlight the warm red, black and green tones in the artwork. Also, the rest of my apartment is very white and filled with light, so I knew I could go dark and bold. Plus, I love strong color and couldn't just have a light white apartment... maybe one day?
Colors used in my room
Deep turquoise, grey, red, copper, gold, green, warm wood tones, and white.
Tips for using color successfully
Go with what you love! When starting a room- whether it's a bathroom, kitchen, or living room- I start with one thing I love and then build on that one thing. It could be tile, artwork, or a vase. It's best to first build upon that favorite item with other fabrics, textiles, and furniture. Wall color is usually the last thing I bring in, because there are so many color choices.
