Inspiration: A Bold Coat of Paint

Inspiration: A Bold Coat of Paint

121708teal-06.jpgWe posted yesterday about how changing just your bedding can quickly alter the look of your space and today we're inspired by bold paint (and how dramatically it can change your space). MellieMell's home on flickr is the perfect example of this sort of transformation...

We already love all of her decorative accent pieces and artwork but the space was missing something--a bold coat of paint.

We love how she decided to paint only two walls in the entryway/dining area. Because the bold color teal is such a statement, leaving the other two walls white lets the space continue to flow without being overpowering. You can also see that she decided to define the space of the opposite room by painting it a darker, navy color. Before, you could barely notice that there was another room and now the space pops into view. Even the white, overhead lighting fixture and table lamp no longer blend in with the background.
