Location: Brooklyn, New York
Type of Home: rental apartment
Color Inspiration: Creating warmth in an often times cold feeling city, I take my inspiration from my Scandinavian inheritance. My mother's bird tapestry above the sofa and my bird clock above the dining table became the inspiration for bringing color into the entire apartment.

Colors Used: I mainly use maroon, green and orange in my apartment, but also have hints of yellow and blue here and there. It's a muted rainbow! All the colors have led me to leave the walls an off white. But I've been thinking a lot about painting...
Color Tip: I like to keep it simple, nothing too overwhelming. You can have vibrant colorful patterns if you keep the space minimal (and bright!). And I like the pops of color to be spread out, uncluttered, making sure to not take away from each individual thing. Lastly, I think lighting is the ultimate factor. I'm a big fan of lighting. I never use overhead lights. At night I have a few lamps or candles lit.
