Name:
Lindsay
Location:
Pflugerville, TX
Division:
Cool
Inspiration for my palette:
I wanted to create a space for my children that would spark their imagination yet be a place that adults could enjoy, too. I used typical "kid" colors of red and blue, but adjusted the hues in such a way that they come across more stylish than basic primary colors.
Colors used in my room
Teal blue, charcoal gray, fire engine red, crisp white.
Tips for using color successfully
Variations within the same color family keep a room from looking flat.
Palette
