Color can set the tone of a room very powerfully. Although the choice of color is certainly personal preference, how you use it is just as important. At Blinds & Designs serving Marin County, our professionals understand how color can impact a home and can help you determine what sorts of colors would be best for your room. Read on for a few tips to get your creativity rolling!
Bright and Bold
If you want to make your room really pop, bright and bold color. Your room might call for just one area of that color to be the focal point—for example, the kitchen backsplash or one wall of color. You can highlight the color with complementary hues in your window treatments or accents such as throw pillows or artwork.
Neutral Can Really Enhance a Room
Although many people automatically think of neutral colors as boring, they can, in fact, offer timeless elegance. The spectrum of warm neutrals ranges from linen and ivory tones to the richest sable and chocolate shades.
If bold and bright seems a bit much but you want something a little more than just a neutral, consider something in between, such as blue-gray or earthy olive tones. Or choose gray to add brightness to a room without going too bold.
If you’re still stuck trying to decide which color is right for you, find inspiration. If you’ve got a favorite accessory such as a plant pot or vase, that could be the base of the color you ultimately choose. Or look to each year’s trending colors—the Pantone Color Institute offers a new Color of the Year, which you’ll see in anything from clothing to automobiles. If you don’t like this year’s color, look to colors of the past to see if one grabs you, or you can wait until Pantone releases its pick for next year.
