Chris's 'Woodsy Beach' Living Room

Room for Color - North #16

Name: Chris Location: Minneapolis, Minnesota Type of Home: Rental Apartment

Color Inspiration: I like bold and rustic color schemes, and had in mind colors that would give off a summery yet cozy yet not so cutesy cabin-by-the-lake vibe (hence the greens and browns).

Color Inspiration continued: That said, I also enjoy the contrast of primitive and modern, and have started introducing this idea color-wise with the addition of bright red items and colorful contemporary artwork.

Colors Used: Walls: Warm Glow (Behr)
Furniture: Smoke Gray, Green Apple, Almond, Fire Engine Red

Color Tip: Choose your colors carefully, but don't be overly cautious. A wimpy, restrained, partly-realized color scheme will make your room look faded and humorless. Do what you want, even if it means your deer head wears a badminton medal or you have a white plastic dollar store cat on your bookshelf. Friends will just assume you know something that they don't and ask if they can copy your bad ideas ;)
