We first dubbed this color scheme "the ketchup/mustard effect" long before we ever actually experienced it in an interior space. After catching a glimpse of this house project by local interior design firm 3 Fold Design, though, we've forgotten all about any condiment-colored similarities. Decide about this color combination for yourself after the jump...
The designer duo of local studio 3 Fold Design consists of Page Gandy and Tracy Curtis, both licensed designers and long-time pillars of the Austin interior design community. Ever since joining forces to create 3 Fold Design, the pair have worked on a number of award-winning residential projects, like this Clarksville residence that won the 2008 ASID award for 1st place residential residence. We love the use of grays and whites as the neutrals and love even more the combination of modern red and yellow as the accents. Gandy and Curtis also incorporated money, energy and space saving ideas in this home (and continue to implement in all of their projects). We think lots of inspiration can be gathered from the images of their online portfolio.
What do you think about this home and its color scheme? Do you dig the red and yellow used together as accents or is the combination too reminiscent of ketchup and mustard to you? Is the idea of seeing ketchup and mustard in this color combo just silly? Let us know!
