A bright new season is right around the corner. Are you ready to freshen up the look of your home? You can start by choosing the right colors. First, think about the type of ambiance you want your room to portray. Color can create so many different moods in a space. Greens can be soothing, yellows are energetic, reds are passionate and blues produce a calming effect.
Let’s take a look at the color wheel for some inspiration…
Colors that are side by side such as yellow and green create an analogous palette that is not only colorful, but also has a calm and relaxing feel.
Complementary colors are found opposite each other on the color wheel. Simple but dynamic, color combinations like blue and orange will add energy and drama to any room.
Monochromatic palettes use several shades or tints of a single color to create a tone on tone combination for more subtle palettes.
Contrasting colors such as light yellow-green and a dark vibrant pink create an exciting palette of balanced colors with vivid contrast.
There are an infinite number of color options available on the market today. Who knew that one color could have so many varying shades. For many, narrowing down a color palette to just the right hues can be a challenge. Here are some of my designer tips to help develop your eye for color and select the best colors for your home.
Finally, color has the power to transform any room. Choose a color you love. It may not be currently on trend but if it resonates with you it will always be the right choice. I hope I inspired you to select some new colors this season and create a fresh new space in your home. Thanks for reading!
