A bookshelf can look cluttered. If you don’t need to access its contents on a regular basis, hang a large piece of art from the shelves, as shown in the next space designed by John Dransfield and Geoffrey Ross. Not only is this technique a great way to maximize limited wall space, it stylishly hides the shelf’s contents. In fact, try placing paperwork or other unsightly items behind the canvas!
Lemon Sorbet is not for every room or every setting warns Donna Frasca, Color Specialist in Charlotte, North Carolina. “You won’t see it much here in primary living spaces here in the South, with the open floor pans and direct sun exposure. But I certainly would use it as an accent color to lighten or brighten up a nursery, bathroom or children’s room.” Above the pale yellow lends itself beautifully with the pale blues in this coastal, nautical home.
As for the different color combinations that include gray, purple is always a good choice. Red, blue, brown or yellow are also nice options to take into consideration. And since gray is nothing but black and white combined, you can also use it with the classical black and white and maybe with some subtle touches of red. Even though gray is a color with character, it’s still considered a neutral so a complementary tone is always welcomed. To avoid a dull interior, you can try playing with textures and patterns.
