Here we are on a rule-breaking Tuesday. Today's 'Why This Room Caught My Eye' post has gone astray. But it is not all that wrong. It is a colour story today. But let me tell you the background.
I was really looking for an inspiring room last night, and I was literally roaming the web like for hours. But I couldn't find what I was looking for. I had a too precise idea in my head. I am currently in the middle of a redesigning project of my living room and I am thinking a lot about colour schemes, textures, placement and so forth. Recently, I painted my walls - white and two shades of grey - and in about a week I am expecting my brand new sofa (right now I am sitting on my floor well 'poufed' on a pile of cushions). The sofa itself is in an anthracite hue and even though it is high summer here, I am thinking of a rather autumnal colour palette for my room: I want to work with greys, dusky blues and a fresh injection of yellow. And that's how we get to the above shown lady, the foxy Ursula Andress. I was totally drawn to this picture because it perfectly depicts the colour palette I have in mind (yes, yes, Ursula was a hottie, too). Now I only need to work on a good execution of it.
What do you think of this colour palette? Have you seen good examples with these colours? If so, please share them with me. I am in need of serious inspiration!
Happy Tuesday my dear friends!
