ice cream mural

This wall mural of the Van Leeuwen ice cream truck can be found in the company's Greenpoint ice cream shop. I love the whimsical modern style of the mural. The truck, balloons, and party garland are simply outlined in black, so your eye immediately goes to the splashes of coral and turquoise in the balloons.

The truck, balloons, and party garland in the mural at Van Leeuwen's Greenpoint ice cream shop are simply outlined in black, so your eye immediately goes to the splashes of coral and turquoise in the balloons. The colors are intense in the middle and fade out, like an ombre effect, and remind me of watercolors. Color tipsIf you're looking to decorate a room with this color palette, keep in mind that coral red is a bold color choice. Think about bringing in a splash of coral reds and pinks through accessories or one stand-out piece (like a headboard.) Play around with various hues of this color palette. An intense coral red pops against a pale turquoise. A deep turquoise looks pretty against a pale coral pink.Here are a few favorite finds inspired by these watercolory splashes of painted color.
