More Color Inspiration from Amanda Nisbet ~ Living Rooms

I'm not quite done with Amanda's color inspirations yet.
This post is centered around the many different colorful
living rooms that she has designed.

I especially loved the colour palette she used for (Oprah at
Home editor) Jill Seelig's living room. Creams and black with
a very bright coral colour. It's brilliant.

The colour palette is carried into her study. I
really love the combination of her shiny coffee
table for a touch of glam. I also really favour
custom built-in shelves around a sofa just like the
one above. The small sconces are a really nice
touch as well.

Isn't this living room so much fun? One wouldn't
normally imagine that this many colours would look
so good but she really managed to pull it together
to look fantastic. It's a very cheerful living space.

This is the ultimate green and pink colour combination.
It looks so beautiful - but with maximum drama. I love it!

Blue for a bachelor? No problem. The shade
of blue she chose to lacquer the walls with has
just the right amount of life to it to bring vivre
to an otherwise dark room.

This is Amanda Nisbet's own living room. She
obviously has an affinity for colour. Jewel tones
are always so brilliant and vivid.

Green, gray and gold...not a common combination.
The green on the walls is so fresh that it brings a
unique energy to the room.

Amanda is versatile designer and also designs more neutral
and relaxing rooms such as this living room above. The colors
that she used above are more subtle but still noticable.

The green coffee table is an
unexpected but nice splash of color.

What I thought was interesting about this room was
actually the adjoining room. Did you notice the opening
to the brilliant green room in the far left hand corner?

Patterns are very fun when paired with solids.

I don't usually like yellows but this yellow gold hue
really has me sold. It totally brightens up the room
and energizes it.

I love how this well appointed living room opens up to
a beautiful study in the back. The striped banquette
gives the room a bit of edge.

And here's that lovely study with an ultra
comfy sofa with nailheads. I love furniture that
has nailhead detailing on it.

This blue sofa is super long! The artwork really goes with it.

I hope you've all enjoyed Amanda Nisbet's living rooms
as much as I have. Hope it has given you more colour
