I love color but, alas, my landlord doesn't, ergo no paint. I decided to take my color direction from the stain glass medallion in the window. I imagine that it is a kaleidoscope eyepiece and the accessories scattered around the room are its colorful reflections.
Colors used in my room:
White, gold, fuchsia, moss green and pops of blue.
Tips for using color successfully:
Starting with a neutral backdrop has given me more flexibility with my accent colors. Switching out the art and fabrics can completely change the personality of the room.
