Lindsay's "Purple, Purple, Purple" Room

Purple, Purple, Purple

Colors Used


Color Inspiration

The artwork I create is an inspiration for my living space. I wanted to create a space that the creatures I draw and paint could feel at home in. The entire space ended up becoming very much like an art installation. I am now living in a cartoon.

Color Tips

Don't be afraid to experiment and have fun. If something doesn't work out the way you want you can always change it later.

I feel like I'm walking into a grown up Lisa Frank house... and I love it.

I know you've listed three shades of purple as your colours, but actually I think its the turquoise accents that make it

I love the walls! So cute. I think they do make the creatures look at home.

I favorited you as soon as I read "purple, purple, purple" and then "Colors Used: Purple." It made me laugh. I like how you hung your art.

I have that exact same green frame! (Next to the pink one.) It's surprisingly versatile.

I love the lighting in these photos. It gives a great ambiance.

Love the cartoony, "wiggly" trim. Works perfectly with the funky space.

It's just clutter, organized or not. Does nothing for me.
