Inspiration for my palette:
This was originally the dining room, and when we moved in, it was painted a very dull sage green. We wanted something warm and lively, and this wall colour was lovely with our dining furniture. A couple months in, we decided this space would actually work better as our living room. Suddenly my blue sofa and purple rug were in my (very bright) coral room, which I had never intended when we painted! I also happened to have a canvas that tied these colours all together - this room is a happy accident. It shouldn't work, but I swear it feels fantastic to sit here while my husband cooks supper. I can't wait until we install a wall of shelving where the very large painting is hanging out; then I'll get play with these colours all over again!
Colors used in my room
"Funny Valentine" by Behr (a very pink coral), "Oxford White" by Benjamin Moore, and the lovely blue of our velvet sofa.
Tips for using color successfully
Choose colours you love and follow your gut, despite what others may say. When I showed people the "Funny Valentine" paint chip, they looked at me sideways. Now, people comment on how much they love it, almost as soon as they enter the house.
