New York, NY
Inspiration for my palette:
I love any shade of blue: from navy blue to peacock blue to teal to sky blue. When I moved into this apartment the bedroom was painted in the perfect shade of navy blue and it reflects the sunlight beautifully.
The window casing was painted white when I moved in, and I decided to restore it to its original state by stripping the paint off. I love how the dark wood trims match the original wood floor and the dark wall.
Colors used in my room
Navy blue, ivory, walnut.
Tips for using color successfully
The bedroom is teeny (6.5 ft by 9 ft). The dark color on the walls makes the room feel very cozy at night while toning down the bright morning sunlight through the huge windows. I decorated the room with colorful books, t-shirts, and use clear glass jars for storage. A splash of ivory on the wall (the lace dress) and on the bed (the king size blanket) lighten up the room and add more texture.
