Name:
Kate
Location:
Birmingham, AL
Division:
Cool
Inspiration for my palette:
When we moved in, the family room was yellow and mustard (like living in a hotdog!). We wanted a calming colour that would go with the neutral sofas and love how the teal worked out. I added a couple of pink accessories as a complementary colour to the teal.
Colors used in my room:
We used Venus Teal by Behr on the walls with neutral furniture (creams, whites, beiges) and pops of pink.
Tips for using color successfully:
I try to stick with neutral colours for big pieces of furniture - sofas, beds etc then add colour with paint and accessories. Paint is a cheap way to add instant impact. Pillows, throws, curtains and art is a great way to add colour especially if you're in a rental and can't paint the walls.
