Elegance and Nostalgia

"'Mixing and contrasting colors to achieve a deeper, tertiary color palette has been a passion of mine for years.' [Joan] always tries to pull at least a thread of dominant hues from one room to another to provide overall continuity, while retaining the seperate identities of adjacent rooms. In the Painter residence, the deep coral walls of the more casual keeping room are echoed in a softer shade in the dressier dining room nearby."
