To Contest Page & All Entries Name: Jamie Location: Dallas, Texas Type: Rented two bedroom townhome Why I use color:"My newly rented town home was replete with white walls, little character and a difficult layout. The living/dining area is rather long and narrow, which gives it a tunnel-like effect. I knew color was key in getting the distribution correct in the space. A bold, beautiful, blue paint color paired with repetitive art on the long wall unifies the room and creates drama. Opposite, over the white, cast cement fireplace, a twelve-inch blue stripe was painted giving the space an added architectural element and interest. My daughter’s (inherited from my parents) mid-century modern fuchsia sofa and chairs were the right size, scale and especially the color for the space. Pinks are my favorite colors as they energize the room yet it remains remarkable sophisticated."
