Nicole's 'East Coast' Studio

Name: Nicole
Location: Washington, DC
Type of Home: studio

Color Inspiration: I just moved into this apartment a few months ago, and literally lost sleep over what color to paint the walls. I knew I wanted a shade of blue; my childhood bedroom was painted in three different shades of tropical blue because I loved them all and couldn't pick just one. It is simply a color I can't live without. However, for my current studio, I wanted something serene yet sophisticated. After agonizing over a fan deck for weeks, I found the perfect shade of deep grayish blue. The color reminds me of cold ocean water, which is quite fitting seeing as much of my life and decor is inspired by water.

Color Tip: Keep it classy. This doesn't necessarily mean using color conservatively- it means using it tastefully. Traditional colors can be fresh, and bold colors can be elegant. Juxtaposition is always sexy. But ultimately, using color is about creating a space that is comfortable, inspiring, and beautiful.
