Birmingham, AL
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.
