color guide

: : I just went through the entire color guide on domino magazine's website. I'm mainly trying to figure out a color for the bedroom. that seems like the most important color to me. the others I can go bold with, but the bedroom I want to have a calmness to, with maybe some color pops here and there.

I, of course, love this orange, especially paired with the beige. I could see something like this in the living room. maybe with a long stark white shelf running along the top edge of the beige. with frames, prints and paintings on top.
I love this really pale green. almost like celery. paired with the white molding. this might be suitable for the bedroom.
I am completely in love with this kelly green color. and so fresh with the stark white contrast. love it!! you guys see my problem yet? I love too many of these colors, I don't know how I will pick. maybe this for the kitchen or dining room.


I also like these two last greens. they might work for the bedroom.

Pale green? The first one? It's beige sis!

Go for something that soothes you - a place you won't mind waking up to if you feel a bit out of sorts, or a place which won't fight for a specific mood. Put the strong colours in a different room! Your bedroom is the one place you can't avoid going...

Love the site, thanks!

Love the jungle theme of the nursery - I saw a crib set at ElegantLinensPC.com that would match it perfectly. The giraffe is my favorite.

that last green is divine. especially with the red frames filled with the vintage illustrations - it's a nostalgic yet still modern palette.

Thanks for the informations, color is the important thing on designing, with this, we can create or follow the trend. The similar color can make the room be best room design.

As an Aussie not long back from a trip to the Czech Republic, Germany and France. The forest and greens particularly in Czech and southern Germany (even their wehat crops are an amazing variety of greens) gave me a new appreciation of green. The European greens seem to be a bit softer than ours. So have a nice green leather carry case for my Sony camera and a fresh appreciation for European fashion and house colours.

I'd like a splash of the second last green... perhaps just a feature wall. If I ever tired of that perhaps change it to an orange or red.

Never had much luck with green clothes or shirts... "blue and green should never be seen without a colour in between"
