Katie's 'Apple Green' Studio

Name: Katie
Location: Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
Type of Home: studio apartment rental

Color Inspiration: We took our color cues from the warm orange of the exposed brick and the numerous plants we have in our home. We wanted the space to feel welcoming and eclectic — and not too homogenous or static — so we pulled in many complementing colors: burnt orange and golden yellow, vibrant green and bright blue. The numerous colors aren't overwhelming because they are done in small moves and work to enhance the industrial features of the space.

Colors Used: Our main paint color move was with the green wall (Color: Green Apple). At night, the color gets a dark glow and actually makes the space more cozy. During the day, with the sun pouring in from the windows, the wall gets slightly washed out and looks like fresh sod.

Color Tip: Mix and match — you never know what goes together. I thought bright green and crayola blue would be awful together but I was pleasantly surprised that the green wall and blue couch work so well in this space.
