Rachel's "Retro Mod" Room
Location:Jamaica Plain, Massachusetts
LIme Green, Pink, Black and Red
The existing window trim was wood so I wanted colors that would pop in contrast to that. Also I found that really cool flocked vintage wall paper at an estate sale and had to use it. I had envisioned a crushed velvet bean bag chair from the begining.
The lime green I originally picked was too dark. So I bought a much brighter lime green and used the darker one for the baseboard. I have many sample paints so I spend a lot of time mixing colors myself and making swatches on the walls. But I still never know till you do a big area. Then I know right away, if it's what I want or not.
