new d*s guest blogger: lauren willhite of color collective!

by Grace Bonney

Hi! I'm Lauren Willhite from the Color Collective blog. Grace kindly asked me to be a guest blogger here on Design Sponge, and I couldn't be more thrilled!

If you already follow Color Collective, then you know that I collect images from designers, photographers, and artists that inspire me, and create color palettes from those images. This week I will be focusing on interiors, and I have a little theme prepared for each day. As an added bonus for you lovely Design Sponge readers, I have matched the colors with Pantone numbers. I hope you enjoy!

I thought it would be appropriate to start off with pops of color…

Isn't this yellow kitchen amazing? I just love the shade of yellow with the white tiles. The details in the photograph are perfect: that mint green tin, the red tea kettle, the metallic storage tins. Yes, this kitchen would be a joy to cook in.

Room color doesn't always have to be about the walls. White walls with pops of color in the furniture and décor can be quite delightful! The turquoise couch and light green shelf make a great color combo. The Dining area in the right image is just my style with the simple and modern furniture, and brilliant color in the artwork.
