Color Palette: Grown-up Primary Colors

The Room of the Week is titled “Happy Ranch” on the Pencil & Paper Development Company website, and happy it absolutely is, largely because of the bright color palette.  The primary red, blue and yellow colors are bold and saturated, and would look very immature, if they weren’t surrounded by plenty of white and warm brown tones.  Plus, the primary colors are used only in small doses on accent pieces.

I hope you enjoyed this bright room this week…have a great long weekend!
