simply color: karly depew

Navy, yellow, blue and tan is one of my favorite color combinations. When paired with rich brown floors and furniture, the colors really pop. These modern rooms in Karly Depew’s home showcase how the perfect color combination can make simple room decor come to life. — Lauren

    That is a really nice shade of yellow paint. It looks nice and cheery in the sunlight and more relaxed in the shadey corners of the room.
