NOT YOUR AVERAGE SEA FOAM

Most people cringe at the thought of sea foam, but after seeing this space, I guarantee you'll find room in your heart to love it. Even if just a little...

When paired with crisp whites and punchy blues it feels fresh, current, and cutting edge.
The modern silhouettes and acrylic accents help drive home that feeling of relevancy. I also adore the unexpected moments of pink. Did you see the underside of that lamp shade?Brilliant!
I'm not usually one to betray my beloved neutrals in favor of color, but something's gotten into me and I find myself appreciating (and embracing) spaces like this more and more these days. (If you don't believe me, just wait till you see my home tour in the upcoming Issue of Rue Magazine!)
So long as it's grounded in white and devoid of crazy pattern, I think I could start living with more color!

Such a great color, I love when people design with bright colors that usually look intimidating.

you are so right - i'll bet this space is especially beautiful when they open up all of those windows and really let the light in. that color is probably magical at certain times of day....

and i have no doubt that your home is going to be divine! ox

Lovvve it. Kind of crazy, but oh so awesome. I painted my bedroom this colour back in high school and I loved living in it. So cheerful and it always made me smile each morning.
