We picked up a Mexican blanket while in Ensenada and thought it was the perfect piece to design the room around. With dark yellows, greens and burnt oranges we’re going to use it as a rug in our new living room. We picked out bold yellow and dark gray paint but after the paint was on the walls, I started to second guess our decision… The yellow accent wall was really bright, and the gray chair rail turned muddy. But there’s no turning back now—we’re going with it.
(sorry for the terrible cell phone picture…)
I’m determined to pull the room together with pattern and texture. We have original hardwood floors with uneven dark spots that give it lots of character and the rest of the room is bright white. There’s beautiful natural light that streams in all day so with some artwork on the walls and some fabric, the room will soften right up.
The feel we’re going for is natural and neutral with bold yellow accents, graphic and native patterns and modern furniture. The colors below will be perfect for fall/winter, and then we’ll freshen everything up come spring. So, what do you think!?
