While reading in the October issue of Lonny Magazine about Kristen Cunningham and Scott Jarrell's loft (which EVERYONE should check out here), I was really inspired by the colour palette of everything they have curated in their space. Blacks, whites, browns, and Kristen even mentioned they have painted most of their doors in dark olive.
Dark olive naturally lends itself to a vintage, military and industrial vibe that brings automatic cool to anywhere you can find it.
I present the following:
I think that leaning more towards "dark" than "olive" is key as well - a pale olive bordering on avocado just brings the wrong kind of vintage feel (more hippy, trippy, and bad 70's which just isn't the look).
So, we welcome dark olive (also delightfully referred to as olive drab) to our extremely low-variety yet incredibly high-taste arsenal of acceptable colours along with black, white, brown, and brass.
What do you think of olive this? Terrible. -__-
