Inspiration for my palette:
I wanted to do something deep and rich in our living room, to complement the lush colors outside our windows. I'm a fan of greens and deep teal, while my husband is drawn to orange, and we both love gold. I combined our senses into a rich, soothing palette that reminds me of Joan from Mad Men. The orange is Joan's hair, the deep teal is her dress.

Tips for using color successfully
Simplicity is easier than mixing lots of colorful patterns. I love both looks, but for our busy living space, I opted for simple. The two powerful colors are grounded with the natural, golden tones of the furniture and flooring.
