Monday Color: Lemon and Aqua

Today's Monday Color combination draws its inspiration from the summer sun blazing in clear blue skies, which we've been fortunate to see a lot of this season. It is also the palette I'm using in an Upper West Side family room set against clean white walls with abundant light wood tones, so a family of five can revel in that that fresh and carefree summer feeling all year long.
