East #8: Gigistephiez’s Color with Conscience
Location: Chelmsford, MA
Type of Home: new victorian style
What inspired you to use color? originally the beach — i love turquoise, different shades of blue. but i love color in general so i use strong colors as well. they contrast beautifully. i’m still in the process of decorating our new house and we soo need furniture so this contest is perfect!!!…
Color Tip: don’t be afraid of it! but if you are still hesitant and go with neutrals, pick a focal wall and choose a color for it (be a bit daring). then work off of it in your accessories(curtains, pillows, artwork etc).
Colors Used: since i am earth conscious i went with a company called bioshield.i used a dark (greek easter egg looking)red for our dining room it contrasts beautifully with the turquoise hall/kitchen area, a royal purple for our bedroom, since it’s a large room it works well. it’s a matte purple and i intent to paint a mural in the same color but it’s a glaze so i hope the effect will be unique. lime coconut in my son’s playroom which play nicely with the turquiose blue in the living room. which by the way is actually 3 different colors total. i am still in the process of painting our rooms — so i still have butter yellow, eagle’s eye (smoky blue) a clay paint i can’t wait to experiment with that’s a beautiful shade of greyish blue. i have a habit of mixing my colors so they are very custom.
