Laura's "Sunset Beach" Room
Buttercup yellow, hibiscus red, khaki, white
My favorite time of day, sundown. Even after living most of my life in Florida, I never tire of the transitioning colors of the sun setting as it turns golden yellow, sending striations of fiery pinks and reds across the clouds. The shade-gradient khaki stripes on the ceiling remind me of water soaked sand. The living room faces west and has plenty of windows, and the colors of the sun setting through the open windows intensifies the colors of the room. I chose to do color block accent walls because as much as I enjoy the rich colors, the border gives the room an overall light and airy feel which I also love.
If going bold with color, either use the majority on the walls and keep textiles and furniture neutral or keep the walls neutral and go bold with accessories; this creates the perfect setting for showcasing the focal colors of the room without becoming overwhelming and unfocused. I love bright colors and bold patterns so I made sure to include plenty of white balance, which allows the eyes to rest, the colors to pop, and the room to flow.
