This always happens! I just put in a HUGE paint swatch order and then I run across something like this and I need to start a new list! This San Francisco bedroom is from the decor8 feature called “How Much For This Room?” and it’s owned by a woman named Christiana. As a designer (and homeowner or love of decor in general!), it’s always so helpful to see something put out there like this. Plus you get a great list of resources and ideas.
I LOVE this color palette. Totally me – dark grey and white with some red, yellow and black accents!! I’m trying to phase out the green in my living room because I keep finding myself drawn to a more monochromatic palette with one (maybe two) accent colors. I’m moving all of the green stuff to my kitchen/dining room.
This color is called “Iron Mountain” by Benjamin Moore. I definitely have a color crush here…mmm…
How amazing is that wallpaper? A perfect example of how wallpaper can lighten up a dark room, or act as an accent wall without the huge commitment of wallpapering an entire room. Very contemporary. I love wallpaper.
As someone with two large dogs (both with black fur) and a growing baby, I’m a little scared of white, but I love the aesthetic! When in doubt, I choose dark or black colors, but I’m trying to not be so scared of stains! My husband can clean up anything or get out any stain, so maybe I will go for that light-colored slipcover I’ve been eyeing for the loveseat in the dining room…
What do you think of the color palette? Are you drawn to dark colors? A lighter and airier palette? A mix of both? Do you have a “when in doubt, choose (dark/light/white/black/wood)” mantra?
