What Houzz contributors are saying:

The homeowners were in the middle of painting the basement walls and ceiling bright yellow when they got a call from Imbue asking if they could meet. “As we were all standing in the basement being blinded by yellow paint and sunlight, the architects were worried about the use of too much color,” Christi says. “And the fact that most people paint the ceilings white. We weren’t about to do that downstairs, in our jam room, so we changed the main wall to gray.” This subdued the space. “Walking out of the house, one could still blink and see yellow,” she says. “It was Imbue’s intention that the interior be entirely white, while Trent’s intention was that every wall be colored. We met in the middle.”Ceiling paint: Forsythia SW 6907, Sherwin-Williams

Contrast: Opposing elements (such as opposite colors), placed near or next to each other to give a high-contrast effect. Opposite and florescent coloured items make items easily distinguishable in the room
