Last week I took you on a tour of my colorful home, which showcased white furniture against highly saturated wall colors. But what if I switched things up a bit? What if I kept the high-contrast color scheme that I love so much but simply inverted the palette? What kind of results would I get? What if I changed the white furniture to black and replaced the highly saturated wall colors with less saturated hues?
Oh, yes, we’re going there, and it’s coming up next in my Inverting the Palette series. Stay tuned, you won’t want to miss this.
I’m going to start the tour in the dining room because that’s where my inspiration pieces (the four colorful pots I posted about yesterday) took up residence. I’ll show you some photos and then give you a rundown on where I purchased various items and, of course, provide the name of the fabulous paint.
For this decorating project I chose a high-contrast color scheme. I love the combination of highly saturated walls offset with white furniture.
With the exception of the pots on the center of the table, I purchased everything in this room at Pottery Barn (Garrison glass cabinet, dining table, Carolina adult chairs, seagrass placemats, aluminum pots of grass, and dishware). The glass cabinet is filled with a collection of Pottery Barn Colorful Serve pottery. I couldn’t resist the fabulous colors and awesome serving pieces in that collection. I painted the walls Blue Lapis and the ceiling Windmill Wings–both colors by Benjamin Moore Paints.
Coming up next–a lime green living room. Check back tomorrow to continue the tour.
