While I don’t think we’ll be seeing the end of white rooms and “light and airy” decorating schemes anytime soon, I do think that colored walls and more “lush” and layered interiors are showing up with more regularity. And I love it! Choosing color for your walls can help anchor a room, add depth and complexity and offer a backdrop to layer on fabrics and accessories.
Emily Clark recently painted the living room in her new home a soft blue, Benjamin Moore’s Palace Pearl. She’s inspired me to start flipping through the paint deck, too!
Jeffrey Billhuber injected this family farmhouse with loads of color. This gorgeous bedroom is painted Benjamin Moore’s Colony Green.
This blue bungalow dining room by Lauren Leiss packs so much layered style in a small space.
This family room, created by Southern Living’s Anne Turner Carroll, uses Farrow and Ball’s Dix Blue.
Benjamin Moore’s appropriately named Seawood looks lush and sophisticated when lacquered.
Chris and Julia created their own custom dark green for their library. The rich color, nearly black, lends a cozy, intimate feel.
Afraid of “too much” color? Bright white wainscoting can help break up a bold color and keep it looking fresh and crisp.
A deep pumpkin looks fresh and modern rather than dated when paired with bright artwork and a light rug.
Have you embraced color in your home? I’m definitely leaning toward blue in my open family room…
