Warm Up With Color
Because we spend our first and last waking hours at home, we could use stimulation with a daily dose of upbeat color.
High-voltage splashes of color warm the walls of this home, where each room boasts a different but equally vivid hue. A mango-orange living room, canary-yellow foyer, turquoise dining room, and lavender sunroom proclaim the home's decorative panache.
The homeowner's early childhood years spent in Florida inspired her to transport that color-drenched tropical setting to a Midwestern home.
And while each of the rooms in this residence is a canvas for a different bold hue, wooden French furniture provides balance and continuity, as do the soothing white slipcovers. The white scheme also allows the homeowner to move and rearrange pieces on a whim and from room to room, without disrupting the overall color scheme. White trim and moldings also offset the paint-box colors.
Whether bright and bold or warm and neutral, color makes a greater impact when it flows naturally through adjacent rooms. Strive for continuity in a few main elements of each room such as flooring, wall color, texture, and accessories.
