Sounds like a crazy prom outfit but it's not...it's a super fun color scheme! My sister is moving to NYC soon and is renting a studio (or as she likes to say, "buying a building") and has asked me to help her! In a realistic design situation, you have to work with a client's existing pieces and in this case, my sister has a seafoam green sofa, our starting point. I've advised her that we're going to play it up with some navy and coral accents--it's going to be wild. Here are some great examples of these two colors working together.
|This is one of my favorite rooms--by Ashley Whittaker. It's bright and soft at the same time. Also, the lighting is so gorgeous!|
|The soft seafoam green with the pop of the drapery is really fun and actually quite calming. From HERE.|
|Tobi Fairley uses a neutral as the base and a pretty seafoam green tailored drapery treatment and accents it with a coral throw pillow and geometric upholstered ottoman.|
|Who can resist a macaron? We had macarons at our wedding as the favor. YUM|
As you can see, these are a happy combination. They make the room bright and fun and sunny and I don't think you really need anything else in a small studio. We are thinking about a patterned navy rug, the seafoam green sofa, seagrass woven bar stools, and some coral accents in the throw pillows. I can't wait to show you how it looks when she moves!
