Color Inspiration continued: Every room in my house is saturated with color. The dining room is my favorite room, though, both because it's the most dramatic and because the interaction of light with the rich, orange paint causes the color to change literally by the hour, from dusk to dawn.
The color palette of the dining room was inspired by a water color still life featuring an orange tea pot, a light blue vase and a red apple resting on white lace, arranged on a black table.

Color Tip: In each room I start with a simple pallet, such as two complimentary colors, and let it evolve organically over time. This helps the color in a room seem genuine and unregimented.
