The Obama Administration announced yesterday that it’s ditching the color-coded terror alert system that was put in place after Sept. 11. Instead it’s going to a two-tiered system that’s supposed to be more concise and (probably) scarier than stoplight colors ever hoped to be.
Which made me wonder…what will happen to those poor colors, now that they’re out of a job?
How about sending them to Designers’ Portfolio, where they’ll be in good company? Herewith, our favorite red/gold/yellow/blue/green rooms:
Okay, so the room’s not red, but don’t you just love those little stools? Design by Greta Goss
I’ve always loved this Candice Olson basement because it just doesn’t look like a basement. And the gold couch? Warm and inviting. That retired gold terror color would fit right in!
There’s no sweeter color for a kitchen than sunny yellow—but Alia Meyer puts a disco spin on it in this contemporary kitchen packed with quartz and glittery chandeliers.
I must be feeling traditional today…or maybe I just haven’t caught up on my sleep after the all-night party that is the Alt Summit. Whatever. The cloud-of-a-bed in this Sue Adams bedroom makes me want to crawl in and take a nap. And maybe paint my own bedroom that soothing shade of blue.
Okay, now I’m awake! Can you imagine getting ready for work in this apple-green bathroom? You wouldn’t even need your espresso. Design by Celia Berliner
