Let’s face it. Philadelphia can be drab at times. Gray skies. Gray buildings. You want a gritty backdrop for a psychological thriller? Set it in Philly. So if you’re longing for a change of pace, a colorful home may be just the remedy.
Designer Malene Barnett took this approach when creating her Brooklyn abode. With a motto of “the more, the better” when it comes to color, she uses it everywhere — from the front door to the books on her coffee table. The tropical palette also reflects her Caribbean heritage. Step inside, and you’re transported to a brighter, happier place with walls the color of sea glass.
Whether an accent or inundation, try some color. It’s the perfect antidote to gray days.
