I love me some Apartment Therapy. Throughout the year, the awesome site hosts contests such as Small Cool and Room for Color. It's time for Room for Color and I thoroughly enjoy seeing all the different ways people use color and combine color in their homes throughout the US and the world. This year, one entry really stands out to me. I'm kind of obsessed with it. It's rustic. It's cozy. It's colorful. It's "Vintage Vibrant." And it belongs to Noa from New York, New York.
Noa didn't overpower the hardwood and exposed brick of the space, but rather played off of it. Keeping the bedding neutral, she amps up color with lots of pillows--gray and red chevron, crushed velvet, satin. The bed itself is made of pallets that make a perfect home for lots of pretty shoes. The antiqued, turquoise chest is what stole my heart from the get go.
A narrow wooden bench adds a rustic touch to this hallway, while the rug lends cheerful, fun color and pattern. Oh, exposed brick--how I adore thee!
Love this. I'm stick on a lookout for a skinny little ladder like this. Noa uses it for necklaces and pumps. I wanna use one for magazines and scarves. ;)
A nice close-up of the creative under-the-bed storage Noa created using the pallets her bed sits on.
