Name: Allison S.
Location: New York, NY
Why I use color:
"When I moved into my first New York apartment I needed to decorate on
an extremely low budget. I have a very large long white room. I did not want to spend all my money on art for the walls. I decided to just buy a few cans of paint and see what I could do."
"• Don't be afraid to mix patterns. A mix of subtle and bold
patterns can add a nice contrast to a room.
• Have fun with paint. You can always paint over it.
• If you see a pattern you like alter it and make it your own. The
idea for my wall originally came from a pillow that I saw at a sample
sale. I really liked the idea of patterned rectangles. I chose colors I liked and created something similar but with my own style."
I can get inspired from any type of good design
