I love the feeling of this interior from Elle Decor and the banana leaves which add fabulous drama to the room. Plus there are 3 different shades of yellow here!
The only thing that’s missing is colour on the walls. So if you go through the process of what to choose. . .
1) They can’t be a clean yellow to match the furniture because it would not work with the rugs and the drapes.
2) Can’t be the colour of the drapes because then it would fight with the clean yellow of the chairs.
3) The yellow beige of the carpets would not be fabulous with either the chairs or the drapes.
So I would paint the walls BM Rich Cream, not muddy, not too clean–the perfect backdrop for this happy and bright interior.
Need help choosing the right neutral or colour? My How to Choose Paint Colours: It’s all in the Undertones ebook takes the hundreds of choices down to 9 neutral undertones along with list of all my other go-to best grays, broken down into 3 undertones, green, blue and purple. The beige undertones of pink, yellow, green, gold, orange and taupe along with the best greens and blues.
My bonus book of colours is worth the price of the ebook alone but you will also get my system of understanding undertones so you can stop making mistakes when sourcing tile, carpet, countertops, etc.
