Suzanne's "Summer Breeze" Room
Location:Salt Lake City, Utah
Yellow, white, grey, turquoise, pink.
I live in a house full of boys and wanted to create a room for myself that was light, bright and unabashedly girly. The jumping off point came from the Thomas Paul Aviary fabric in maize which I used to reupholster the office chair. I juxtaposed that with a more graphic large scale print on the front. I also lined the back of the bookshelves in a smaller chevron in the same colorway. I then used the Aviary fabric on the light shade, and even found a ready upholstered bench. I painted the desk white with a grey top and the room a lighter shade of grey which is a nice neutral backdrop. The yellow and white is continued throughout with the accessories. The room is quite dark despite the two windows, and the original trim is unpainted wood. To visually lighten the room I chose white painted furniture.
This is quite a small room, so I chose to use one main color and then repeated it throughout. This helps bring a cohesiveness to a small space. The secondary colors visually complement and don't compete with the main color.
