Kaleidoscope of Color

March to the beat of your own drum. A wilder color palette of oranges, blues and greens lets you play with creating a space that’s a lively rainbow. You can choose a single shade to set the tone for your room, while coordinating decor ties in the rest of the palette. If you feel like making more of a statement, try painting a retro-inspired accent wall using all the colors together.

Opposites Attract

Why blend in when you can stand out? Contrasting colors were a dominant theme in ‘70s rooms, making an unexpected palette of green and purple the perfect way to create a space that speaks for itself. Find balance between the two by choosing one shade to be your primary color, while the other becomes a secondary choice for accents and accessories.
