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.
Children's rooms are great places to make bold statements, and this girl's room does exactly that. Stripes, solids, and prints in pink and lime greens mix with the wall's outrageous oranges and yellows. The walls feature a hand-painted rose motif that is both easy and affordable to replicate. The leopard-print carpet adds the perfect quirky complement for the room's bold colors and designs.
Keep in mind that color intensity, pattern, and lighting all influence a room's final look and feel. Likewise, both solids and patterns can be succesfully mixed if used in ways that complement a space, not overwhelm it.
