If you are struggling with choosing a color scheme, we are here to help. Picking a color scheme that works and flows well can be difficult. But with our top eight tips, we hope to make it a little easier on you!
Tips for Choosing Your Home’s Color Scheme:
Tip #1: Locational Inspiration.
Imagine your happy place. A place that you feel relaxed and comfortable. Maybe it is the beach or even the mountains. Wherever your happy place may be, get inspired by its color scheme. When you add these specific colors to your home, it will help evoke this peaceful, positive environment for you and your family.
Tip #2: Fabric Inspiration.
The fabric prints in your home can be an incredible source of design inspiration. Take one of your favorite fabrics and utilize the colors used in it. The colors can then serve as your room’s color scheme.
Tip #3: The Influencer.
Get inspired by your favorite color. Begin with your favorite color and work from there. The color will serve as the “influencer” in the rest of your color scheme because everything will be built around it.
Tip #4: Add Value.
Once you have decided on your color scheme, you can use different values from each of the colors. You will be able to have the same color that varies in light and darkness throughout the space. But by using different values, it will help the color scheme feel diverse while tying everything together.
Tip #5: The Range.
You want you larger furniture pieces to be of a medium value and have your accent pieces in light and dark values. This will help create a balance in the entire room; nothing will be too dark or too light. For your walls, we recommend using a medium value. This way your wall decor can be lighter or darker than the walls.
Tip #6: What is in a Name.
Don’t be easily swayed by the paint color’s name. By avoiding the name, you can focus all of your attention on the actual color instead of its name.
Tip #7: Neutralized.
Neutral colors are perfect for pairing with your more exotic colors. You want to always include at least one neutral color into your color scheme. The neutral will help balance out the harshness of the more intense colors.
Tip #8: Last, But Not Least.
Painting your room should always be the last step, but that does not that it is the least important. Once you have decided on your room’s color scheme, you want to paint the walls within the set colors. Neutrals tend to make the best wall colors, but that does not mean you can still add color. If you desire to have blue walls, try and find a neutralized-tone of blue.
