J&R’s View of the Bay

Name: J&R
Location: Bellingham, Washington
Type of Home: rental apartment

Color Inspiration: Since we could not paint the walls, we took inspiration from our view of the bay and our love of Hawaiian beaches. The latte-colored walls and parquet floors became the sand, the sectional sofa and bookcases remind us of the water, and the natural light from our picture window ties the room together. Quite by accident, our instruments added an additional Polynesian color and texture with their koa, cedar, and rosewood finishes.

Color Tip: Look at your favorite items of clothing, and choose the one or two colors that continuously appear. For us, it is denim blue and rich grays. Select larger pieces (or wall colors) that incorporate these colors, and then bring in some brighter colors for accents.
