Meet the Boomershines

When designing the interior of their three-story 1920s Mediterranean-style home in Atlanta, designers Cinda and Mark Boomershine experimented with color, one room at a time. In their dining room Cinda and Mark opted for high-energy hues such as robin's-egg blue, teal and Caribbean blue.

Beige + Black + White

Beige has long been a favorite for builders and homeowners alike for its ability to warm up a space. To add more flair to the color, Cinda paired it with black and white. Although the room is mainly neutral, the contrast between the neutrals adds graphic impact and energy.

Seafoam + Camel + Chocolate

Chocolate brown and baby blue have been a classic pairing for decades. Originally made popular in the '50s, Cinda and Mark decided to put their own spin on the palette by pairing chocolate brown and seafoam green with camel. Camel's neutral appeal strikes the perfect balance between the dark brown and languid green.

Olive Green + Charcoal + Celadon

You may not think of using green and dark gray together but this sunny corner is proof that the pairing works. The window casing in Cinda and Mark's breakfast nook is painted a dark shade of charcoal, while the ceiling is a punchy shade of celadon. A custom cream banquette brightens up the corner while adding a cozy spot for enjoying a morning cup of coffee.
