This months design inspiration is coming from my own palette inspiration, as I work this summer to spruce up my studio space. For me, it all started with a pink sofa! I found a cute pink sofa and it became the perfect anchor for my client sitting area. I knew I wanted white walls because of the beautiful natural light I get through my windows, but I also felt I needed to bring in a touch of modern and bold, to balance out the pink. That’s when I decided on the ever so classic black & white stripe, paired with gold accents. This color combination draws in the eye, and feels both contemporary and classic.
Though the pink couch was the main inspiration, I ended up keeping it as my accent color. The space contains more black, white and gold, with pops of pink. By keeping the pop of pink in the accent pieces, and making the black, white, and gold the main color scheme, I feel I’m keeping the space fairly gender neutral by not being too feminine or masculine. This way all of my clientele feels cozy and welcome in my space. The gold metallic accent pieces give just a touch more of the modern and upscale feel I was looking for. Check back next month to see how it all comes together!
I also think this palette makes a beautiful teen/tween bedroom space! The perfect combination to carry you through your junior high and high school days!
