Inspiration for my palette:
Having recently moved into a new house, I needed a hue that would work with my existing furnishings. I wanted a paint color that would bring in warmth, depth and a bit of drama. After much color testing, spanning the range of bold red, pale turquoise and even pink, I landed on this deep blue-green. To keep the energy up, I then brought in chartreuse and dynamic reds. The result is exactly what I was hoping to achieve - a funky, vintage vibe with lots of warmth.
Colors used in my room

Tips for using color successfully
Don't be afraid to use deep wall colors. Many people are afraid to go deep because they fear a space will feel too heavy and overwhelmed with color. I find the exact opposite to be true. A deep wall color can help furniture and accessories "settle" into a space and appear less busy by eliminating contrast.
