ATHENS INSPIRED COLOR SCHEME
Since I first came across this living room in Domino years ago, I’ve been smitten with the pale blue and olive green color combo. While looking through other inspiration images, I’ve noticed that it’s a scheme that pops up over and over in my feed.
Although I haven’t had a chance to use it for a personal or client project yet, I hope one day to incorporate the colors into a room of my own. I love how the rich green sort of “uglies” up the room. Alone the blue wouldn’t feel grown-up enough to be used in these sophisticated spaces.
The palette is well represented in this photo of Athen's rooftops, and I have matched the main shades to a similar paint color. It shows how you can easily use one photo to inspire a space. It’s an unexpected and interesting color scheme, and I hope to see it in my future.
