Inspiration for my palette:
This is the first room you see after walking through our front door. We wanted to create a bright, child-like sense of happiness, and to make it a real joy to be home together as a family. Most of our furniture has been rehabbed by us. Whether dyeing our couch slipcover by hand (to cover child-made stains), replacing a glass top on our coffee table with a vintage cupboard door, painting and adding new hardware to a buffet-turned-television stand (from Habitat's Restore) or hauling home and breathing new life into a cast-off hutch, we have made this room very "us."
Colors used in my room
Pale blue, aqua, chocolate brown, sunny orange, and lime.
Tips for using color successfully
Don't be overwhelmed by color; It adds so much life and personality to a room. Also, don't be afraid to mix colors and patterns. They can work together cohesively, if done correctly.
