I have always loved serene and neutral rooms that are popped with color in the form of artwork, pillows and accessories. When given a choice I am always drawn to the room done in neutrals with plenty of black accents. But when I saw this home in Traditional Home online magazine designed by Shazalynn Cavin-Winfrey, I remembered how much I also love color. Not sure I could live with a purple couch forever but I can certainly enjoy looking at it and admire the courage of the homeowners to step out of the beige and greige box most designers are pushing and really embrace their love of color. I mean—pink checked drapery panels? Gotta love it!
And painted nightstands are such a fresh change from the more expected dark wood tones or even a mirrored cabinet in this mouth watering orange and turquoise guest room. Be sure to take note of other fun details like the multi-colored fringe trim on the drapery panels and the placement of fun artwork.
Be still my heart! This is about the cutest little boy’s bedroom I have ever seen and the sophisticated textiles and colors will grow with him requiring just a simple change of artwork and accessories as he gets older.
And for those who appreciate the serenity and beauty of neutrals…a master bedroom to dream in.
What do you think—-neutrals or saturated color in your home?
