DC has a reputation for being a bit stodgy when it comes to style and color, and admittedly navy suits and red-striped ties far outnumber brighter options on the Metro, but these Flickr Finds prove that color sometimes reigns supreme (at least in area homes)...
We thought these rooms might help inspire anyone on the color fence; this mix of light, dark, bright, and calm colors shared by our readers offer something for everyone's enjoyment. From the simple to the sublime, these reader rooms celebrate color in all its forms. We hope these glimpses of DC color inspire you to greater color boldness in your own space- be sure to keep us posted when and if that happens!
Our thanks again to everyone who shares pictures with the DC Flickr group. We love getting a peek inside your homes, and sharing your inspirational spaces with the community.
