simply color: bladon connor

by Lauren

This week’s color palette is pulled from the home of talented furniture designer Bladon Connor. Bladon’s 400-square-foot space in Chicago is a creative fusion of his own work and the collections he has accrued. The aqua wall is a pleasant mix with red, yellow and gray accents and leaves the room feeling fresh and contemporary. — Lauren
