PROJECT ROYGBIV: THE CUTEST PARK SLOPE TOWNHOUSE

THE CHALLENGE:

Our Color Lovin' client, based in Park Slope, Brooklyn, came to us sad that her newly renovated walls were all quite blank.  She had an impressively creative eye, and the decor selected for her new home had a stylish charm. There was aqua upholstery, brass accents, and her rainbow kitchen tools could turn any frown upside down. But we needed to give the walls life.  The challenge was to make them work with all the existing colors, and not make the 12-ft wide space look narrow.

THE SOLUTION:

  • We were selective about the walls that needed art, because art everywhere can shrink a space.

  • We got a medium-sized photograph of an open sky with a hint of the colorful Coney Island Ferris Wheel. The open sky actually added an airy appeal the space.

  • We added a large-scale circular mirror (with brass accents) to open up the walkway space next to the foyer.

  • We took her impulse-buy West Elm prints and painted the white frames hot pink. Unlimited edition prints turned unique + fun!

  • We added a colorful sculptural piece to the bottom of the stairs for some diversity in media and visual interest
