Color Schemes

19 Mar

Recently, I’ve been working on the redesign of a home office/playroom. It’s been a lot of fun, and I wanted to share with you some of the different options I showed the client:

Option 1. Yellow with blue and accents of brown. Blue & brown have been around for a while now, but I think what will keep this look fresh is mixing it with new accent colors and changing the type of blue that is used. Fabrics above are by Romo, Barbara Barry, and Duralee, among others, carpet is by FLOR, table by West Elm and art by the talented Marisa at Creative Thursday.

Option 2. A softer look, with soft greens, reds and a pattern mix. I love the polka dot fabric, which is by Lee Jofa. The others are Duralee, Schumacher, Ralph Lauren, and Kravet, along with a few others. Furniture is by Pottery Barn and the Company Store, carpet by FLOR and paint by Benjamin Moore.

Option 3. My favorite, and luckily the client’s too! Fabrics are Duralee, Kravet & Schumacher, and paint by Benjamin Moore. Art above is by Marisa at Creative Thursday; the piece below is by SuspectShoppe, both on etsy. How about you; which do you like best?

Work is in progress now and I can’t wait to show you the finished result!

    […] color, which she mentions is Bird’s Egg by Benjamin Moore, a color I considered for my last project.  It’s the most perfect blue, and the trellis pattern looks great with it.  You can see […]
