Making Unusual Color Choices Work

Making Unusual Color Choices Work

It's unbelievably refreshing to see rooms that embrace a mix of colors that are considered unusual (mint green), offbeat (any pastels, these days) or even challenging (pink). Interior designer Carla Lane actually started off her career as a journalist and through the years honed her innate ability to transform an ordinary room into something truly beautiful.

Mixing pale green, turquoise and coral doesn't seem like the best idea on paper but Lane made them work. Using white as the perfect back drop and divider — the three colors work so harmoniously together and create an electric environment that just begs for entertainment.

On the more subdued side, but equally as beautiful — Lane managed to put pink in just about every facet of a room but in such a successful way. She even managed to inject just the right amount of color into a simple white and gray kitchen through the use of accessories and a colorful bench!
