What's Your Color Quota?
In each of these three homes the amount of colors used would easily have some running for the door. While others would revel in the vibrant combinations. I personally do not live with this much color, but have saved each of these fabulous images in my favorites!
There are elements and combinations that make each one work beautifully, even if this is not your taste. However, there is a very specific component in these spaces that typically is the main attraction of any any room. Some of you may have detected it right away, and perhaps for many the joy of taking in all the colors, it may have taken a more secondary role.
Traditional Home-April 2008
Interior designer: Betty Murdock
The colors in this home were inspired by this family's love of the circus!
Better Homes&Gardens-October 2006
Interior design: Kendall Wilkinson
A love of yellow was the starting point for this color scheme.
Southern Living-March 2003
Interior designers: Anita Montgomery&Robert Rentz
A favorite children's book, Zin! Zin! Zin! A Violin, was the inspiration for this cheerful home. Including the black demilune foyer table painted with images from the book!
Are you still wondering? It is the presence of classic architectural details. Color is actually a great and compatible compliment. It may seem counter intuitive, but the addition of bold and vibrant colors make these features and details stand out. So if you really crave color, take a cue from these rooms and embrace it!
