PAINT | Use Unexpected Color

BRIDGET BEARI COLOR RULE #1:  USE UNEXPECTED COLOR ACCENTS

Yes!  A dose of the unexpected always keeps things interesting.

Why not start with an unexpected color at hello – on your front door?  Here’s a door with a wow color that works.  The gray trim on the serious brick are a beautiful backdrop for this fresh apple green.

Susan Jamieson, of Bridget Beari Designs, followed her own color rule beautifully in the 2012 Richmond Symphony Designer House in Richmond, Virginia.  We still have clients that remember “Pickle”, the green that she boldly painted on her signature Bridget Beari Design bookcases, in an otherwise light and neutral space.

Often when we think of using paint to create an accent color, we think of a painted accent wall – ho-hum.  How about painting a piece of furniture to add the element of surprise – like this!

If you are a tad color phobic when it come to picking a wall color – using accent color in your upholstery, throw pillows, rugs and accessories is the perfect way to keep your walls calm and your space interesting without taking a big color plunge with paint.

Wow, the architecture in this room is just insanely gorgeous  – it’s interesting how even deep moody colors call for contrast and a color surprise – like the lavender velvet sofa’s and the graphic red artwork.
