Location: Beaverton, OR
Type of Home: Townhome
What inspired you to use color? I've lived in rented apartments all of my adult life. And, if you've ever rented an apartment you'll know what I mean when I say, "Enough with the white walls!" Day after day surrounded by a sea of white I craved life, color, movement and a sense of vitality in my home. My boyfriend and I are young, vibrant adults with a definite sense of style that we want our home to reflect...

...We developed color inspirations from our favorite past living experiences. Our home draws from the deep crystal blues of the Atlantic Coast; the misty tranquil grays and greens of the Adirondack Mountains; and the golden, firey hues of Southern California. It balances the desert tans and earthy browns of Arizona and the fresh clean greens of Ireland.

Color Tip: Rather than finding a color you can live with, search your environment for colors that make you feel alive live! Just like an inspiring song that makes you thrilled, excited, happy, sad, or morose--color can paint the mood in your home. Use vibrant oranges, reds, or yellows to create energy in your space. Seeking a calming retreat? Try using blues, grays, and greens.

Colors Used: Ralph Lauren Paints - Parched Teak and Adirondack Blue
