Name: Megan
Location: Mill Valley, California
Type of Home: Single Family Home

Color Inspiration: I'm inspired by clean modern design, but I've always been drawn to bold, fun colors. So I try to balance the two by having a minimal, modern base with pops of bright colors and prints to energize the space.

Bowl of Fruit

Colors Used: The gray walls and yellow door are Benjamin Moore- I don't have the names in front of me, but I could find them in my shed if anyone is interested. The back splash tiles are "beach glass blend" from

Color Tip: Balance is key. I spread colors around the space so they aren't overused in one area vs. another. Also, I think it's important to know when to tone it down. I wanted a piece of art for the blank wall in my kitchen, but I felt that a colorful piece would be too much with the rug and cushions. I looked around for a large black and white photo or print, but couldn't find one in my budget, so I painted the lemon/bee painting for the space.
