Newest Project – Citrus Contemporary
I was called in on my newest project because my client had done what a lot of homeowners do, she over-beiged. Beige walls, beige couch, beige blinds, beige rug. Now she hates the space.
I understand why people do this. Beige is the perfect color between white (that can sometimes feel barren and un-lived in, depending on how it’s used) and real color that can be so scary. Not to detract from beige…when used correctly, it can be quite beautiful – I actually really do like the color. However, in this case (as is often the case), it’s too much, and it turned her space into a boring, bland, sea of beige :-(.
Since some of the major pieces are beige and have to stay, I’m going to work with it, but I’ll freshen it up with an injection of citrus – yellows and poppies (her favorite colors) and a bit of white.
