Unexpected Color Combinations

{red and chocolate brown via}

I’m always looking for ways to add unexpected pops of color into our apartment. Yesterday, Anel and I painted a huge slab of wood in glossy bright yellow paint to create a new shelf/counter in our tiny Manhattan kitchen. We had some leftover paint so I asked him to paint my closet door the same color. Let’s hope I don’t hate it- I’ll know in about 8 hours when I get home from work tonight! Photos of the whole project to come soon. Here are some other unexpected color combinations found in funky interiors.
