One of my greatest fears is living in a space with too much color. I know. Most people have more normal “greatest fears” like the fear of being trapped in a meeting with no water, or the fear of going to hotel with wall to wall carpeting and not so nice bed linens, or the fear of having to wear open toed sandals before being able to get a refresher pedicure…oh ooops…those are MY other greatest fears…hmmm… Anyhooooo…you know what I mean. Most people do not have a “decorating with too much color” fear.
To illustrate my color bravery, today I bring you a cheerful space where color is used just right in my view. Some decorating ideas perhaps that involve color mixing and matching. Chartreuse (that lime green) sofa, paired with orange and blue pillows and a brown and white rug all work. Then there is the delicate use of color in the art in the kitchen that picks up the bright orange of the Eames chairs in the dining room.
These rooms are the opposite of my greatest fear…not too much color…just the right amount…what do you think?
