Tucked in the Coronado Historic District of Phoenix, Arizona, this red brick house packs personal touches and loads of inspiration for the DIY-er. Take a step inside Erika Rappleye’s family home to find out the unusual places she brought in color.
Curb Appeal A lemon yellow door and cherry red sitting chairs tie together this simple porch and add interest to a neutral desert landscape.
Kitchen Erika’s bright white kitchen is balanced by dark hardwood floors. Bicycle art split into four canvases from Pottery Barn creates a focal wall in the dining nook. A peek from the living room into the kitchen reveals a brick wall Erika’s handy husband exposed along with French doors painted a sunny shade of yellow.
Living Area Erika’s favorite space in the house? Her living room gallery wall anchored by her bright green piano. Pick up a jar of Annie Sloan chalk paint to get a similar shade of kelly green!
