My gold must have enough brown in it to not look too yellow. My greens must be olive or sage - with gray or brown undertones - not yellow. Terracotta - too pale it looks peach and too dark it looks muddy. I don't like white. Blues are easier but right now I am struggling to find the right aqua/turquoise for the kitchen walls.
Trevor's bedroom request was roman movie theater. He saw a room in Haynes that he liked (it was a media room design). Getting a 12 yo to like anything is a challenge. Everyone though I was crazy when I said dark brown walls and a black ceiling but when it was all done everyone thought it came out great!
My office is my "space". I wanted to be surrounded by my favorite things and also to be inspired. It is much more colorful than the public spaces
|I fell in love with the tropical punch color|
|The picture was a gift from my daughter one Christmas and it inspired the blues |
Looks kind of like a sunset!
|I carried the color scheme to the other side of the room on this buffet|
stenciling the door panels was the finish touch
That is not mold but my attempt to find the perfect color scheme for the entry/living and dining rooms. I ended up spending $20 in those little paint samples but considering what paint costs, I think they are a bargain! The wall texture and room lighting can change the color that was "perfect" in the store!
Lucky for me I don't have to pick a color until near the end of the project. The hunt for the perfect aqua/turquoise continues.
