Lisa and Joey’s Paris in the Desert

Name: Lisa
Location: Phoenix, Arizona
Type of Home: two bedroom condo

Color Inspiration: I was lucky enough to find a couple of vintage paintings of Paris on eBay. One of them was of the tiny street in Paris where my husband and I stayed during our honeymoon last year. We loved the color palettes and also liked the idea of using blue to contrast with the fact that we live in the desert.

Colors Used: We used Sherwin-Williams paint in Reflecting Pool (SW 6486) on the focal wall which, along with the ceiling, had been previously covered in mirrors by a former owner. The room felt so much calmer after the mirrors were removed and the wall was painted this color. Creamy (SW 7012) was used on all the other walls. I love the texture that milky white paint creates on brick.

Color Tip: Incorporating shades of white is a great way to add contrast and give your colors “breathing room”.
