Inspiration for my palette:
I love color, so I definitely need no inspiration to go all out. Since this is a dressing room, I wanted something glamorous and fun. I searched for affordable damask wallpaper and I found this one in a great color. I chose the green paint as it's compliment and I'm really happy with the contrast. The light blue ceiling was an afterthought.
Colors used in my room
The wallpaper is a printed damask pattern in a wine color. The green is Benjamin Moore Newt Green. The ceiling is Benjamin Moore Ice Blue.
Tips for using color successfully
As long as you stay within the same tonal range, you're usually fine. Jewel tones look great with other jewel tones, brights with other brights. I'm also a big fan of looking for an inspiration piece if you're stuck on a scheme. If you find something you love - a throw pillow, blouse, etc. - then you've got a pallet that already is proven to work. Just pick your colors right out of it.
