Division:

Inspiration for my palette:
I've always loved all shades of ocean blues, especially teal. We tried a bunch of colors but finally decided on this dark shade. It took 4 coats but it was worth it!
We started by adding lots of white but that was making it too stark so I brought in some natural wood tones and it really warmed up the space and kept it from looking too modern or cold. It was a work in progress for awhile but dying a chair slipcover hot pink really made it feel like home.
Even though the wall color could be described as moody, I think the room feels happy and fun because of the accent colors and the eclectic mix of photographs and art in the gallery wall.
As much as I can appreciate a well-done neutral palette, it's just not for me. Color makes me happy!
