craft room redo: color scheme
The new craft room is currently painted a beigey pink (not by me). A repainting is definately in order. I've always been a little color challenged so I few years ago I bought this book:
I spent today flipping through the pages and picking out some different color combination possibilities for room accents.
I'll still be using my three black bookcases for supplies storage and one wall will pretty much be dominated by black. I think I will paint the walls an off-white to maximize the light in the room.
I may paint the room "nook" or the inside of the closet a different color.
Color Combination No. 1: Light blue and red is one of my favorite color combinations. However, I am already using this combination in my guest bedroom. I do really like this robin's egg blue color.
Color Combination No. 2: Here's the same blue with orange. This color combination feels a little more hip to me (or is orange already "over"?) It also reminds me of my sister's college alma mater colors.
Color Combination No. 3: Pink! I never use pink in my house, but I am loving this pink and gold combination.
Color Combination No. 4: More orange, but it feels more subdued and earthy when paired with the green.
Color Combination No. 5: Red is my favorite color, so I almost have to include it in my craft room. I like it with this lime green, but is it too Christmasy?
How do you choose colors?
