Something tells me this is just mid-project jitters. You know, that feeling you get as you're working on the project that the room is not right—because it isn't! It's a mess, with paint cans scattered, old bedsheets covering the floor, and all those elements that will complete the room (the important finishing touches) still missing.
Still, what is it about this public space that keeps me reserved and cautious as to color? I haven't been afraid of color in the bedroom or in my office. So, why does it seem so daring to bring it in here? I don't have an answer. I am pushing ahead with color in this room, on a foundation piece even!, and we will see where it ends up. I tell myself it's just paint and it can always be changed. Can bold color on a foundation piece still live in a mostly neutral room? Or will I love this room even more livened up with more colors, in chairs, pillows, draperies, rug? Stay tuned, and we will find out together!
