In Living Color

To color or not to color? Are you brave enough to live in these colorful interiors?
Knowing how different colors relate to each other is definitely a skill. We turn to some of our favorite designers and DIYers for bold inspiration.
Choose your Anchor Color
Amanda Louise from Amanda Louise Interiors picked a complimentary color to coordinate with her client's blue velvet sofa. "First, we found that luxurious tufted sofa to anchor the room but it was high time for some bold personality -- enter the ‘Split Pea’ cabinets." says Amanda.
Her cabinets are accented with another touch of color that comes from the Mccoy Brass hardware in Amazonite.

Practice Color Blocking
Barrie Benson from BBID used a palette of bold moody colors to create a very 1960's color blocking look. Try using blocks of color like Barrie did to make bold style statements by combining relatively large areas of two to three solid colors. We love the little pop of Benson Hardware accented on her Highland House Credenza.

Show off your Vibrant Personality
Designer Ashley DeLapp  created a home that felt perfectly unique for her client. "From the pink lacquered ceiling in the dining room, to the jade green butler's pantry cabinetry, the result is a vibrant home with bold pops of color and loads of personality." says DeLapp. The Benson backplates paired with the Horne Knobs in Dalmation Jasper adds a finishing touch!

Add a Pop
Interior Designer firm Fylnn Designs Nola took a neutral powder room and injected a pop of color by painting this vanity a deep blue. The vanity blends well with its monochromatic backdrop by adding the Harrison Moonstone Hardware as an accent.

Create a Custom Color
Designer Laura Archibald worked with her client to create their perfect color. She lacquered this daring study in a custom color they created with Fine Paints of Europe. She used pops of our Amazonite Benson Hardware to coordinate with the lush velvet chairs.

Use Color as the Focal Point
Ariel from PMQ for Two wanted an easy update to her powder room. She chose a fun bold paint color to distract from the tile! "While I can’t do anything about the tragic brown tiles in our master bathroom – for the moment – I can paint the vanity and add new hardware to spruce up the space. I used Addison Week’s Jones Backplate with Benson Pull in brass on the door fronts, and the Benson pulls in brass on the drawers and cupboard door." Says Ariel.
