The Unexpected Touch Of Color!

That Ceiling!!

One can tell when an experienced designer has had their hands on a space.  Besides that fact that the spaces will be positioned correctly with proper weight and height, there is a bravery when choosing color and fabrics that either a person with amazing taste or a designer knows how to pull off!  It is always the unexpected pop of color that impresses me. You know, that certain color that most wouldn't dream of throwing into a space and somehow, someway it really works! I have found a few great examples of that and would love to know what unexpected color you threw into a room.  Enjoy!

Prussian blue with olive green and a touch of Turquoise!

Lavender and orange pillows!

Green Dot Pillows!

Multi Yellow and Raspberry pillows.

Chartreuse Tiger Chair!

Brown walls with Turquoise and Yellow pillows!

The pillows!!

Lemon and Pale Orange!

A few ways to add the unexpected color to your space, use pillows, poufs or throws!
