After seeing countless gray and white rooms in magazines and around the blogosphere this year, artist Elizabeth Chapin’s colorful house in Austin really woke me up. You can tell that a bold and creative person lives here, and that she treats her rooms like an extension of her art.
Elizabeth Chapin’s Colorful House
She lives here with her husband Nathaniel and two children.
When was the last time you saw an orange and pink kitchen?
She describes her style to Apartment Therapy as “Ramshackle granny farmhouse goes to the beach with Kelly Wearstler.”
My daughter Lily loved this house, but she really flipped when she saw this pink bedroom with the canopy bed and the big doll house.
Could you handle this much color in your house? I couldn’t, but I think Chapin’s sense of creative fun is inspiring. I could use a little more of that spirit of adventure in my decorating.
