Name: Tobi
Location: Columbus, Ohio
Type of Home: Craftsman Style Single Family Home

Color Inspiration: When we purchased this house, most of the walls were white, save the room in these photos. The house is very large for the two of us, and I wanted to scale it down a bit to feel a little cozier....

Color Inspiration continued: In this particular room, I used dark accents, as I liked the deep, golden yellow walls. We also tried to decorate the room in a way that was less modern than the previous owners had, to better match the age and grandeur of the house.

Colors Used: I used reds and greens to compliment the yellow, and to tie the room in with the hallway, dining room, and kitchen colors.

Color Tip: Don't be afraid of paint colors. They can always be painted over if they don't end up working for you. Also, simply changing window treatments and rugs can change the look of the room entirely. Even if you're on a budget, there are fairly inexpensive ways to make huge changes to your space.
