Show your feathers



This office makes me think of a male bird showing his colors and strutting his stuff for a female bird.

Don't ask me why I think that, my mind works in weird ways.

Wouldn't have thought that... but Hey, it works!

Anyone who paints their millwork turquoise is clearly bold!

I couldn't agree with you more on the male bird thing. I think it means you're creative!!! :)

And the room's amazing by the way!!

I hear ya...lovin' the color combo and if you came to my home you would totally understand why! Although my orange is a tad brighter, my green a little more yellow and my brown is black....well that just seems like it is nothing like the color combo you just showed, ha it's close enough!

Michelle @ Ten June said...

I agree! Love the bold turquoise color!

Very harmonious and earthy colors i like it. Stylish, comfy everything is dreamy, I do hope every office has this cozy feeling. Love the way your imagination works.

I'm a fan of intense colors like these. But they can be overpowering at times. The designer did the right thing by using the rich brown leather colors to ground the room.

The shades are amazing.....with the peacock teal, great photo find, have not seen it before.

This colour scheme is almost a direct match from a booklet Benjamin Moore put out for their colours of 2011! No kidding! I am using these shades for my bedroom redesign.

Totally appropriate! It looks like Martha Stewart's Plumage--which I just painted on a credenza. Gorgeous!
