When putting an outfit together, I tend to dress in neutrals first and then I add color in accessories, jackets and or shoes. The same can be said for a space. Start with neutral walls and floors and then add color in accessories and furniture. When I first saw this ensemble below, it struck me as the perfect color palette for a sophisticated yet fun living space. I can just see that great tufted sofa in poppy against a moody dark black/gray wall. Or the black and white tuffet against the red Moroccan rug. In fact I love this palette so much that someone should just take this collage and run with it! I don’t think you’ll regret it. Here’s the look:
Color Inspiration: Jacket.
To create that moody dark wall, try Black Of Night. Use it in a well lit room to avoid it from becoming too dark of a space.
Color Inspiration: T-shirt.
Greek Villa is a soft white that will look perfect paired with lots of color.
Color Inspiration: Jeans.
Use Naval in accent upholstered pieces and accessories. Also try it in window treatments and other textiles.
Color Inspiration: Scarf.
Gold Crest, Daring and Navel are all perfect to add some glorious color to your space. Try using them in textiles, ceramics, art, pillows and any other accessorie that can easily be switched. Also try using a bold color in one upholstered piece and creating a statement piece in your space.
