Inspiration for my palette:
I was inspired by a shoe! Specifically the Manolo Blahnik "Something Blue" satin pump. I was instantly in love with the intense and gorgeous color and deemed my office accents "Manolo blue".
Colors used in my room
Cobalt blue, light grey, white.
Tips for using color successfully
Paint chips are my best friend! I grab a swatch of every color I plan to use in a room's palette - even if I'm not going to be using it as a paint color. As we finish our basement, I've collected chips of our wall and trim colors, but also the color of our leather couch, and the accent colors I want to use. I lay all the chips out on a table and overlap them to show how much of each will show proportionally in the room (i.e. a little of the hot pink shows to represent an accent pillow, but a lot of the neutral grey - walls) to be sure I"m going to love the final color scheme before I begin.
