Inspiration for my palette:
I've been adding red items for years. Recently, I moved to an apartment (in an art gallery!) with a beautiful tangerine accent wall, and I bought myself a nonobjective painting with gorgeous reds, oranges, and neutrals for my birthday a few days after the move with the intention of placing it on the tangerine wall. But I used a Chinese painting on the accent wall, along with some Ikea poppy stickers -- and placed the new painting on a different wall to add color. I have taken a couple of wooden antiques and painted them with "my" colors. The drop-leaf table's drawers reminded me of a Rothko painting, so that guided my painting. I repurposed a cabinet I'd used as a pantry in my previous apartment: painted it red and use it to display family photos.
