Creating a Mood with Color and Pattern
So my daughters and I were talking about the color red (my daughter Kylee has red pants which I would totally wear if I could pull them off) and it reminded me of one of my recent favorite pictures, the entry featured above via Country Living
This room just makes my heart happy.
I love the calm dignified gray walls and white woodwork combined with the surprise riotous pop of color and pattern.
I guess I love a room that feels alive and fun but is grounded by a more serious foundation. I have leaned toward that contrast in my dining room already with my gray walls, boldly patterned curtains and colorful stained glass.
So, yeah. I think wild mood swings must suit me.
Not sure what that says about me.
On a related note, here is a post I wrote for My Colortopia about creating a mood with paint colors.
