Joseph's "Flamboyant Solemnity" Room
The walls are painted in Benjamin Moore's "Toasted Mauve" and "White Rock". The green cabinet is a flea-market re-do that we for some reason painted in the most hideous grass green... though I think I'm actually growing love it. The mustard-ish wall you can barely see in the adjoining dining room is BM's "Semolina". The hallway is a soft sage green.
We tried to inject some youthful, bohemian energy into our apartment, which, with all its imposing woodwork, can sometimes make you feel like you're living in a Catholic church. Add to that our black cat and talk about spooky-time. But we also didn't want to disrespect the apartment's mature and sober elegance. Basically it all started from the pink silk cushion you see on the chair. Pink is so underrated, people!
We have made too many spur-of-the-moment mistakes and had to repaint too many walls to say "go with whatever you love". Rather, one really has to PLAN PLAN PLAN ahead of time, and work with the way the natural light enters the room as well as the overall ambience of the apartment's bare bones.
