Melanie's Cape Cod Contemporary

Name: Melanie
Location: Seattle, Washington
Type of Home: single family home

Color Inspiration: This is a difficult question to answer without writing a book. We moved into a 1941 Cape Cod from an urban loft. The style of our new home is so different that my design selections were necessitated by the architecture.

Color Inspiration continued: In a nutshell, a textile I selected as an accent for the living room set the tone for our home, but generally I am inspired by colors everywhere. Fashion, nature, art, you name it. I love to observe and integrate the beauty of the world into my spaces.

Color Tip: Let your colors tell a story that sets the tone for your home. Thinking of each room as a chapter in your story can help maintain cohesion and keep even the most exciting palette from creating confusion. That said, maintaining balance is so important. If you've selected strong colors be sure to introduce whites or neutrals to avoid chaos. Allowing one of the colors in your palette to act as a neutral, as I have done with the wall color, is another option.
