Larissa’s Favorite Things

Name: Larissa
Location: Wheaton, Illinois
Type of Home: Rental Apartment

Color Inspiration: We wanted our sterile, “contractor white” rental to feel warmer and remind us of our favorite things. We chose colors that bring to mind water, sunsets, and woods, patterns on the wall and furniture that are also botanically inspired.

Give Larissa a THUMBS UP if you think this room belongs in the finals!

Water, Sunset, Wood

Colors Used: Lighter blue = Valspar Signature Gentle Wave Interior Matte (5007-7C)
Darker blue = Valspar Signature Twilight Meadow Interior Matte (5007-8A)

Color Tip: Don’t overwhelm your room with too many colors. Pick a base color, a neutral and an accent (using complementary colors on the color wheel is an easy way to do this)
