Charming and colorful home decors by Graciela Rutkowski

It’s very easy to get carried away when mixing styles, textures and colors. You need to have a very keen eye in order to use just the right amount of color or to combine different types of patterns and textures without creating an overwhelming mix. These homes are a great example of perfect balance. The interior design was a creation of Graciela Rutkowski and has a look that’s both casual and glamorous.

The color palette is not very large but there are different tones and shades and they are combined in unexpected ways. The colors seem to be used in pairs and the two most noticeable ones are turquoise and ochre. They can be considered complementary colors and they match beautifully. The bedroom is surprisingly colorful and yet it’s also very soothing and calm. The turquoise curtains and the lamp match the walls and the headboard is an accent feature. The combination of turquoise and white is very fresh.

The sitting area and the dining room are mostly ochre with yellow and brown insertions. There’s also a variant with light green and turquoise elements. The living areas tend to be a little more neutral in terms of color. They mostly rely on pattern and texture. The bathroom is not neglected either. It’s simple but eye-catching, featuring patterned walls, a sculptural mirror and a very cohesive décor.
