After renting all my adult life – I WAS TIRED OF WHITE WALLS! Tired I tell you. Bring DIY TV and all their ideas – well I ripe with design ideas.
THE LIVING & DINING ROOM
We had our aunts awesome purple art deco wing chairs. They are a gorgeous pair. But what goes with grape purple? Our interior decorating grandmother had always paired these chairs with a rich buttery yellow. In my real estate career I couldn’t help but pick up Feng Shui and loved the idea that yellow represents health and home. So the crazy color scheme began. To draw out the eye and extend the room, we painted the longest wall – what I like to call – jolly rancher purple. I know, I know. I can hear some people gaging. But for some reason it works here. As a gift our family reupholstered our sofa a velvety yellow and we painted the surrounding walls that yummy, buttery yellow. With really only one side of our home with windows, the yellow really keeps the home bright.
To know me is to know I love the beach. Shells, rocks and sea glass are scattered about my things. There’s always sand in my car. With the bright colors in our living room, I thought our bedroom should be a cool retreat. In my business I am blessed with seeing some of the most beautiful homes. In one I discovered KELLY MOORES Acapulco Aqua. I fell in love. It reminded me of the ocean at twilight, it reminded me of mermaids, it made me feel tranquil. So, I painted the accent wall Acapulco Aqua and the rest Bay Breeze. On a hot day you can just lie on the bed and watch the lights dance on the ceiling and relax. I highly recommend an oasis of your own making.
That was easy – I found the prettiest green granite and took it from there. Choose a warm sage to compliment the cherry cabinets.
My hubby had the idea of silver in the bath. Our home is only 941 sqft and I used color to block its spaces. The bath, with the crisp white cabinets and fun black and white tile needed a toned down hue. I went down to Kelly Moore and told the fella my idea – he recommended Raiders Silver. It worked. Nice blue base hue that’s great for doing makeup in.
THAT’S ALL FOLKS – for now
