What inspired you to use color? Prairie Style Design began in the US in the Midwest. Because of this, Prairie style designers were inspired by all four seasons. I wanted to reference the golds, oranges, reds, and tans. I also to reference the geometric patterns, and elements of nature. I tried to do this in an updated way. The Prairie School was heavily influenced by Asian design. Because of the clean lines of my house I felt the colors, and textures of Asia would work well. The red and caramel color of the living room and dining room (and the pattern on the window treatments) are particularly reflective of this. The green silk curtains in the bedroom coupled with the colorful painting of the Geisha are also reflective of my attempt to create an updated look for a Craftsman-Style home.
Color Tip: Pick a fabric you love first and then choose your wall color
