The rhododendrons may have finished putting on their spectacular show for the season, but that doesn't mean we can't take this color inspiration forward.  This color palette would be beautiful in a bedroom or sunroom, or even a relaxing, botanically inspired living room.

How can you apply a scheme like this?

Here's one approach: The palest green can be applied to walls, with the other tones of this color, as well as the pale pink,  showing up in some of the larger pieces in your room, like rugs and sofas. All of the color can appear in your decor items like cushions, throws, and decorative pieces - but reserve the bold pink for smaller pops of color applied around the space with a bit of balance.

But if you fell like going a bit bigger, consider the bold pink for a feature such as your window dressing. They don't have to be a solid pink (but I wouldn't shake my head at you for that), but you could bring it in as part of the the main pattern in the fabric and really make your windows a show stopper in the room.

As always, if you'd like some help, we have virtual and in-person color consultations that will set you up with two color palettes, along with lots of advice and tips on how to apply it, what paint sheen to choose, and more.
