Hi! This is Jenna again, so glad to be here!
Today I thought I'd share a little inspiration board with you.
I was contacted by a client who had painted her whole great room area a soft blue, and then kind of regretted it because it seemed cold & stark. The thought of asking her husband to "repaint" pretty much killed her, so we totally worked with it!
I put together this board for her, when you have such a cool color all over your walls you need to bring in a lot of pattern, to keep things grounded. Also, it helps to add different saturations of the main color to give depth.
Another great tip is to add a lot of texture. Think knit rug, linen pillows, embroidered pillows, textured light fixtures, wood lamps. All of those textures will help a room feel put together & warm even if the color is in the cool spectrum.
