Color Connection: Herne Hill in London

June 4, 2012

On display in this Victorian house in Herne Hill in London: clashing (but complementary) color schemes.

We like the way pea green is juxtaposed with aubergine walls in the living room and a dusty purple headboard sits against gray-green walls in the bedroom. Photos via Light Locations.
