I've recently stumbled across the work of Steven Gambrel and I was blown away!  Take note how almost every room uses different intensities and shades of the same hue.  An entire room in one color??? He makes it work! He balances the rooms by using one of the softer shades on walls and the darker tones for the furniture, rugs and curtains. He also suggests painting molding or paneling in a lighter tint. “It allows edges of the room to come forward and the center of the wall to recede, giving the space more dimension.”

Turquoise is my favorite color!  I love the use of different textures and materials in the room1

effortlessly chic!
