Springfield, VA
Inspiration for my palette:
I wanted the walls to be bright but still mature, so I used a blue-gray. I have always been drawn to red and yellow so I chose items I liked, regardless of whether they were "too bright" or clashing. The room makes me happy and relaxed, which is exactly the feeling a living room should have.
Colors used in my room
Red, Blue, and yellow.
Tips for using color successfully
Choose the colors you naturally gravitate toward, regardless of whether or not they are in style or on trend. If you pick a palette that makes you happy it will never go out of style for you.
