Name:
Meredith
Location:
San Francisco, CA
Division:
Warm
Inspiration for my palette:
While I know it's not for everyone, pink is my favorite color. It always puts a smile on my face, so I decided to paint the interior side of my front door with my favorite shade (the Benjamin Moore Potpourri) a few years ago in my old NYC studio apartment.

When I moved to San Francisco a few months ago, I was so excited to actually have a separate bedroom, so I decided to focus there first. I wanted the bedroom to be feminine and cozy, so I decided to use a lighter shade on the walls and landed on Sherwin Williams' Alyssum. The furniture painted in Behr's Studio Taupe helps balance all of pink, and I've incorporated the darker coral-ish pink from my old NYC door as an accent with the back of the bookcase and the euroshams.
Colors used in my room:
I painted the walls with Sherwin Williams Alyssum, the chest of drawers and dresser/bookcase with Behr Studio Taupe, and the back of the bookcase with Benjamin Moore Potpourri. I had just enough of the Potpourri leftover from another project (painting interior side of my front door), so thought it would be a nice accent for the back of the bookcase.
Tips for using color successfully:
Pick whatever color puts the biggest smile on your face and use different shades of that color depending on the mood you're trying to achieve in a particular room.
