Have you ever wished your home looked like a designer space? Really, its not that unattainable. Start with something that you absolutely adore. Use the color palette from that piece as your color inspiration. Like I started with this green-blue chair (in the picture above) with chocolate-brown legs. I am in love with this chair- isn't it adorable and yet it has a classy look. And best of all, its not that pricey either.
Once you find your color palette, you're half way to a room of your dreams. But remember do not get distracted, stick to the color palette and you will not be disappointed. Like here, I got my color palette green-blue-chocolate brown from the gorgeous pier1 chair. Single out the colors for your wall and the furniture from the color palette. Get accent pieces in more than 1 hue from the palette. Here, I've picked blue (Benjamin Moore AF-495) for the walls and chocolate brown for the sofa and the coffee table. I could have just picked all my accent pieces in green but won't that be predictable and lil too matchy matchy. So for accents how about blue-green or brown-blue or green-brown or lightblue-darkblue or whatever combination as long as it has hues from the palette. If you check out the accents in the picture : the pillows are in blue and green, rug is brown-blue, decorative vases are in blue with a hint of green. Did you notice the delightful yoga frogs in gold tone - that's my touch of whimsy !! All spaces need a lil bit whimsy, so don't be scared to add lil personal touches.
Still not sure ? Steal the design idea above. But the million dollar question is where to get the same furnishings, the decorative accents and what paint color to use? so here you go...
