I’ve Got Color! Contest: Elysa’s Vintage-Chic Dream Room
Location: Woodland Hills, CA
Why I use color:
“As an aspiring artist and designer, I have a keen eye for color that personifies my environment. Color makes me feel comfortable, creative, and keeps me inspired. I feel that one’s use of color is a defining trait to a personality; people who surround themselves with color tend to have a colorful personality. I am not afraid to use color. On the contrary, I have recently transformed my bedroom into a vintage-chic dream room, consisting of a bold turquoise and coral color palette, accented with white vintage accessories.”
“1) White is a good accent color when using bold colors. It has a clean, brilliant look.
2) If you are redecorating your room and the furniture doesn’t match your new color scheme, repaint the furniture.
3) If you are contemplating several color schemes, paint a small section of each wall with a different palette and live with them for a week.”
1) Leaf through all magazines, not just interior decoration; the color compositions of some ads catch your attention with splashes of color!
2) Relax with some interior decorating TV shows; great ideas and color schemes are found there! (Also, the designers always know where to buy just the right accents that complete a room!)
