Color Inspiration with Chairish

kraft&mint color inspiration with Chairish

This is my dream “Pink” room inspired by Chairish’s amazing selection of vintage furniture. Who is Chairish? Chairish is the online marketplace for design lovers to buy and sell pre-loved furniture. The lovely people at Chairish shared with me a gorgeous infographic, depicting beautiful furniture with bold colors and the moods resulting when using certain palettes. Please take a look below at a few stunning color combos!

I was inspired by the “Peacock and Green” color palette above. We have a few light green walls around the house and changing one for an emerald-green wall would be fun!

Finally, I had to put together a room including my favorite color “mint”, teal and added a pop of color with yellow. What do you think? Which palette do you like the best? I would love to hear from you and your comments always make my day!
