Colorful Living

































(all images have been collected over a long period of time from various sources, biggest of them being Google, If any photo belongs to you, let me know and I'll give you the credit deserved)

I am a great minimalist when it comes to my clothes and to my home. But lately I have been thinking about color, especially for a home.
I have been honestly looking through what seems to be thousands of photos of interior looking to find the perfect balance color(s) in one room, and when it looks too overdone.
I thought you all could help me with this. Which photos in your opinion, to your taste, have too much color? And which photos are just right?

  5. I would say that the bottom picture has too much colour, especially for such a bright pink. In my bedroom I have all of the walls white and then one wall of a deep plum. When only one wall is accenting the room it keeps it fresh and you don't get bored of it too easily. Great photos.

  9. i love colour in the home! its definitely harder to incorporate than in your closet b/c you can't switch it up as often, but it definitely makes such a big impact!

  15. These images are stunning. Love your ideas. The third image shows a very nice balance of colors. Even if you don't like the styling of the room itself, the percentages of color pops would work in any scheme whether contemporary or traditional. I would say that 30% of bold color is a good ratio for rooms.I am following via gfc and fb!

  23. I personally love photo's 4, 5, and 9. I love minimalism but I can never make it work with all the kids. I tend to keep saturated colors like this in my living areas and sleeping areas more muted and restful. xoxo
