color head-to-head

I saw these two rooms on Design*Sponge today and I absolutely swooned over them. As soon as I saw the picture on the left I was like, "THAT'S how I wanna design my home!" then I saw the picture on the right and said "THAT! is how I need to design my HOME!" arg. dilemma.

What would you choose? Like colors to make a cohesive, rich and deep color palette? Or would you choose colors to compliment each other for a quirky, fun, but lived in feel? I love them both because they both have unique statements and personalities. The outside porch looks inviting like you just NEED to cuddle in all those blankets and read a book with a cup of milky tea. The living room looks like lots of Scrabble is played there, impromptu dance parties are had and love is present. Seriously. Love is totes there. So hard to choose!!

Well the good thing is... this is the same house! Whoever this is? Please make room. I'm coming to live with you. Obvi.

What's your preference? Analogous? Complimentary? Do you just enjoy saying the word "tertiary" like I do (often)? or do you take it to a neutral level and work within those limits? There's so much you can do! I can't wait to own my own home... be too daunted to do anything and eventually run to IKEA for help. YAAY! Thank God for Design*Sponge.


  1. I kinda dig analogous. But there are certain times where complimentary just works (I.E. bright white room with pops of color...) I like it all! AHH!

  2. Hmmm. I think I'm leaning towards analogous. The room on the right (as much as I love it) is a little too much color for my taste. BUT I do wish the room on the left had some yellow accents or something. So, I guess my ideal decor would be analogous with a pop of complimentary color? haha


  3. I think I prefer a little of both? maybe leaning more toward complimentary, though. and i tend to gravitate toward anything blue, green, or mustard.
