When Cococozy reader Jessica wrote to me asking what to do with colors in the open floor plan of her new house, I immediately said paint everything one color and then use accessories and furniture placement to define the spaces (see pictures Jessica sent me of a spec house that is similar to her own new home’s floor plan on the Cococozy Facebook page),
Jessica is toying with the idea of stripes on walls, feature walls painted different colors in different areas and a variety of other color options for her brand new home. Her goal is to create a beach chic environment in her main living space without feeling too kitschy. She needs to tie together an open space that is multipurpose – live, eat and cook all in one space.
I think Jessica is leaning towards mixing color in her new space…but just in case she changes her mind, here is an open floor plan that works with just one color on the walls – white.
The accents of light coral, baby blue and black actually add effective pops of color, help define spaces and tie the whole floorplan design together. Connecticut interior designer Lynn Morgan successfully created an open floor plan with three separate areas – living room, dining room, kitchen – and a look that is pleasing, fresh and fashionable!
Hope this helps Jessica in her quest to conquer her new home’s floor plan. If I run across other open floor plans with color, I’ll post those too!
