Joshua's "Vintage Primary" Room
Location:Brooklyn, New York
Muted teal, classic white, burgundy, caramel
The designer created this color palette with three thoughts in mind:
- to evoke my favorite things: he pulled inspiration from my vacations at the shore, natural woods, my favorite photographs and travel souvenirs and my career in menswear.
- to offer contrast with my floor and furnishings. The burgundy accent color harmonizes with the warm-toned wood floor and provides a rich contrast with the wall color.
- to re-balance the proportions of a small room with high ceilings. The blue walls recede to make the room feel bigger; the white ceiling extension lowers the ceiling to help balance the space.
Be bold! ...But make decisions carefully. Take paint chips home so you can see what the color looks like in the actual space and lighting conditions. Keep your furniture neutral and add color through accessories. It will allow you to keep your furniture longer and change the look of your room later. Fabric is an easy, way to make a big impact, personalize your space and create a cozy, welcoming atmosphere. Don't be matchy-matchy; mixing colors, textures and patterns adds a sense of excitement and fun.
