it was colonol mustard and professor plum

.....or maybe it was the framed fabric from Donghia, that started the color trend in Emily Walker's 900 sq ft living space.
No matter, this is a great example of how using a consistent palette can bring continuity to a small space.
Using one wall as an accent as well as a great transitional color into the dining room helps create the flow. I love this dining table paired with the painted gray shield back chairs. Painting the chairs this flat gray, and adding the simple pop of color suddenly transforms them into modern art. table: La Merceria wall color: similar to Benjamin Moore's 'Nightfall-CC-38'
The bedroom is a great example of using color and oversized graphic design to create personality and bluff character in a room. Throughout the space, there are both high-end details {such as the Madeline Weinrib carpet } mixed with dumpster dive or Ikea scores, painted yellow or white. Coverlet, sheets, House & Home; throw, Lucca; side tables, drapes, Ikea; lampshades, Eye Spy; bowl, Waterford Wedgwood; carpet, Madeline Weinrib; pillow, The Cross; wall colour, Iron Mountain (2134-30), Benjamin Moore.
The stripe wallpaper creates a column-like element drawing the eye up and over, the wall/ceiling deliniation creating a sense of space in this narrow room. I find it interesting that the art is kept low and propped rather than hung on the yellow anchor piece in the room. Love the lampshade ceiling fixture. Wallpaper, Farrow & Ball; sofa, Bliss Interior Design; art, desk chair, Hollace Cluny; light fixture, Ikea.
great t.v. and open shelving in the galley kitchen. Countertop, Sticks & Stones; white dishes, House & Home; black china, Wedgwood; vase, bird, Quasi Modo; art, Canvas Gallery; TV, Festoon; rug, Madeline Weinrib.
The charming wallpaper creates the perfect backdrop for the Telegramme prints. A tiny powder room is the best place to go all out and add major personality.
Wallpaper, Telio; toiletries, Teatro Verde; art, Telegramme Prints; sconce, Alico; mirror (painted), Ikea; vase, Bungalow.
