Division:
Warm
Inspiration for my palette:
My original plan was a warm salmon color with black and white accents. I selected the Thousand Island paint chip at night while in a car. My room was bright pink, not a warm salmon. DETOUR#1 I needed some white walls back in my life! I choose Swiss Coffee White for my widest living room wall going to the Entryway. DETOUR#2 I wanted stripes. I mixed Swiss Coffee with a yellow paint and created a custom color for my stripes. Next I wanted some drama for my home office. I painted my wood file holders in Swiss Coffee and with created some abstract glossy Black stripes. DETOUR#3 I did the same abstract black and white stripe effect with the wall section of my home office so that the wood file holders would actually blend in with the wall behind it and almost become invisible. It worked beautifully! If you look closely at the Black and White wall you can see File Holders on shelves. My office wall is bold and one of a kind.
