simply color: alissa and ryan

Today’s colors are pulled from the house of Alissa and Ryan of Horne (and our Behind the Bar column). This couple has beautiful taste! In their living room, the lavender and vintage blues mixed with the warm red and orange tones produce a soft and inviting palette. In the dining room, the brighter, more vibrant pops of color are exciting, and nicely contrasted against the dark chairs and cabinets. Not to mention the gorgeous artwork displayed in both rooms. —Lauren
