Interior Design - Must See Interior Design Paint Colours

I was challenged to create a vignette that would work with two different paint colours – the best part was that I had to spin a wheel filled with different colour options to see which ones I’d get to work with! I landed on Aristocrat Peach, and Ruskin Room Green by Sherwin Williams. I love both green and peach so it was a lot of fun! The vignette I created could work in almost any space. It could be a nook in a living room, a den or a great addition to a bedroom, it could even be awesome in an entryway. The setup doesn’t take up much space, and the console can act as a desk. I love The mix of antique warm wood, with crisp modern white pieces and the fun pop of pink from the chair. The painting adds the perfect amount of edge.
One of my fav products from this vignette is the Ikea VITTSJÖ etagere / bookcase. Its been around for a while but the white colour is new and it’s a super fresh piece for only $99!
