Room Colors – Life is about using the whole box of crayons!

There are a few words that no designer wants to hear, “I really like the look in the Pottery Barn catalog.”  Don’t get me wrong, those room colors are nice and understated, but they are so vanilla, so safe.  For me this quote sums about how I think about design:

“Life is about using the whole box of crayons.”

Color! Pattern!  They’re what take a room from plain and ordinary to extraordinary. Yes, sometimes when you take a risk, it might fail, but its worth the chance. Try a bold color. Pick a new pattern. Use the whole box of crayons, and don’t be afraid to color outside the lines.  Life is too short to live in a beige house with a beige sofa with white walls. That’s not to say we like to mix every color in the rainbow on a project.  We find that one strong color in varying tones provides a bold fresh look while remaining classic and understated.  See the room pictured below.  We chose orange (yes, orange) as a pop of color in an otherwise neutral palate.  The orange is complimented nicely by a soft blue chair with a strong pattern.  Note most of the other pieces in the room are neutrals which allows the orange to make a statement without being too “in your face.” room colors
