When I started with Robin Bond Interiors, one of the first projects I was assigned was a paint plan! This entailed selecting the paint colors and placement throughout the client’s entire home. This was very exciting to me!
I love color! The fact that a particular color can provoke human behaviors and cause certain emotional reactions is fascinating to me! This project was one were color came into play in every space. Our client wanted Hacienda inspired color schemes – “NO neutrals”!…Music to my ears.
These clients were a very cute, young couple living in a beautiful Southwestern styled home with a terracotta roof and stucco facade. The wife had done a fabulous job at establishing an eclectic interior aesthetic by decorating with bold colors and exotic finds from all over the world. Her only task left to tackle were the neutral, “boring” walls.
That’s where I came in!
Each space was defined by a bold pairing of colors.
Upon entry of the home, you were greeted with a shade of rose on the foyer walls and barrel ceiling. Passing through into the living, the tone was shifted to a golden yellow allowing the boldly colored decor to pop! In the adjacent open kitchen, blue was applied to the ceiling with the toffee orange on the walls to compliment. The master suite turned into a serine space with the calming shade of misty blue and ceiling accent of a deep teal. This particular pairing of colors allowed the rustic wooden features throughout the suite to be highlighted as a main feature.
HERE’S A TIP WHEN SELECTING PAINT COLORS:
Pull inspiration from your favorite pieces throughout the house!
Design the life you love!
