#43 – Amanda’s Modern Victorian Home
Location: Akron, OH
Type: 2 story 1930’s victorian home-owned
Why I use color: I can’t get enough color in my house! I work with color on an everyday basis as an interior designer. Every room in my house is filled with warm and welcoming vibrant colors. I use color because it not only makes a space comfortable, but it makes it feel alive. So many people I speak with are afraid to use color on their walls or use colorful decorative accents.
Paint is only paint and can be changed at any time. I practice what I preach, and my house if filled with color. I have a theme of bright oranges, greens and chocolate browns on the first level and blues, reds and chocolate browns on the second level. It makes a bold statement and I have turned my 1930’s victorian home into a modern delight!
