Yesterday I went to the aquarium with my children and lovely mother-in-law. It was beautiful to watch how excited my daughter was at ever new site and even my seven-month-old son was transfixed. I too was inspired.
My mind is always working at how to relate my daily experiences to interior design and today the question that came to mind was, “what does an aquarium themed room look like?” As soon as the word “theme” crossed my mind I shuttered. To me, themes are for kids rooms, and even then I don’t like them.
So I changed my question to, “what does an aquarium schemed room look like.” And by scheme, I mean colour scheme. Immediately the colours teal and coral came to mind (a direct complementary colour scheme: blue-green and red-orange). Ah, much better than gluing sand to a wall (trauma from my childhood). From subtle to bold, these rooms are beautiful:
Here are some gorgeous accessories I found to go with the colour scheme.
With images of lovely coral and teal flitting through my mind it was easy to pick my outfit for my dinner and dancing date with the hubby last night. They say that your dress is a reflection of your decor taste. I guess its true.
