BH&G 1961 - Pink & Gray Living Room
BH&G 1961 - Pink & Gray Living Room
Here is pink and gray that is a bit on the more sophisticated side - darker, with the cream colored accents and floor to lighten it up a bit. Notice that the pink is carried on in the other room - using the same color scheme throughout your entire house lends a feeling of cohesiveness and flow. Pink is a rather daring choice, but if you love it, I say go for it!
1929 Armstrong Linoleum - Turquoise Living Room
1929 Armstrong Linoleum - Turquoise Living Room
This room is different from many of the Armstrong linoleum ads. The turquoise is such a departure from the more common neutrals. And that punch of red orange is just too cool. It's a little foofy like Grandma gone amok with the furniture (and the toile wallpaper), but the scheme is really nice. I like it though. Looks comfy.
