Name:
Monica
Location:
Los Feliz, CA
Division:
Warm
Inspiration for my palette:
My friend Darren helped me re-imagine my living room. He was inspired by a portrait series I created with other Los Angeles women. The colors and expressions in the photos are bright and vivid, so he asked if we could play off their vibrancy. So we reupholstered two thrift shop chairs in bright citrus, designed a bold graphic sofa, and blended in my existing photography and books. He imagined me living in a Pedro Almodovar film, and I couldn't resist the chance!
Colors used in my room:
Bright Citrus
Electric Orange
Vintage Teal
Tips for using color successfully:
Be brave! I live for color. It's what inspires my work and keeps me alive and motivated. Don't be afraid to mix and match colors or go totally bold and crazy if it pleases you. Always experiment and find the best combination that matches your personally. Own it.
