Julie's "Orange Ya Inspired?" Room
"Orange Ya Inspired?"
The "pea soup" green walls came with the house, and we decided to ground the room with various shades of blue and gray. The liberal punches of orange add energy, while the white accents complement the molding and brighten the narrow space.
We recently relocated to the Washington, DC area, and the one relic from our former home that we knew we wanted to incorporate was the large scale abstract painting. The painting's balanced explosion of color inspired our scheme and gave us the confidence to step beyond our (boring) color comfort zone (our old home used a lot of warm neutrals).
I am certainly not an expert! The tried and true minimalist in me is a sucker for all-things white, while my budding maximalist side craves saturated contrast... so I suppose I am a bit of a color schizophrenic. My best tip for anybody is to trust your instincts and have fun experimenting with color. And, always consider the lighting and scale of your space.
