In Living Color

Posted By Rebecca-NY | Jun 29, 2013 | 2 Comments | Category: Uncategorized

It’s often a tough decision whether or not to bring in some bold color in your living space but lately, I’ve noticed that clients are getting more and more daring.  It’s refreshing to see the smile on their faces when the end result is bright and beautiful and not exactly what they imagined, but better!  Out with the old and in with the bold.  Below are a few rooms that grabbed my attention as I wandered around seeking inspiration for some upcoming projects.  I hope they inspire you to make a statement with color.

It doesn’t take more than one color to add life and originality to your room so take a risk and brighten up your space!
