Home Office Project: Finding Inspiration in Color

This is the third post in the series.  See the first two: Getting Started and Defining Spaces and Purpose

Using the idea of creating a color palette, inspired by Susan's Color Corner Series, turned this nervous novice into a confident color coordinator.  My mind was in a purple and green mode after seeing one of Susan's color palettes - Lavender and Green Inspire but I knew I wanted brighter colors, similar to my favorite space of hers - the Polka Dot Room.

Armed with my color scheme in mind, my first step in the process started somewhat unexpectedly with a clearance rack find in the office supply store.  I found some great magazine files in chartreuse and black and some additional pieces in a royal purple.  The plan was set.

From there I hunted for the perfect paint color - something light with grey and purple undertones - City Retreat.  Furniture was tough, but after months of searching, I finally found my perfect black and white pieces and the Marimekko fabric for the window clinched the design.     

The finished product is coming soon.
