You know I love color – and I especially love color when it makes a bit impact on a room! In a showhome, like the Hamptons Showhouse I did a couple of years ago, creating a room gives designers like me a unique chance to really push the creative envelope. And it’s a great opportunity to grab attention with bold design, like I did here!
I knew that I wanted to use a fabulous coral-and-green palette in this room, which would be a fun twist on “beachy” colors. But I also wanted to take it up a notch. So I used a coral-peach wall covering that gave the room a soft glow, and added a big punch through wide painted stripes across the ceiling. The citrusy color I used on the ceiling is Sherwin-Williams Emberglow, a great deep coral that complemented the peach tones.
The corals and greens work well together because they are complementary colors – which means they are on opposite ends of the color wheel. And those bold stripes took a good design into a big WOW of a room!
What do you think of this fun color? And would you paint stripes on a ceiling like this? Let me know in the comments section below!
