Inspiration for my palette:
I am a huge Marimekko fan and love their interesting use of color. Since we had pillows and an ottoman in bright colors, we went for gray on the walls to provide a neutral background. When we hung up the two gray matching wrapped canvases over the fireplace, we felt gray on gray was not right, so we made that wall blue. The blue helped break up the room and also drew attention to the marble fireplace mantel. The green and beige rug was added to match the green Marimekko pillows and bring the two sides of the room together. The room feels so relaxing, yet bright- which is exactly what we were going for!
