Color abounds in all sorts of ways – from painting your walls or adding excitement to them with dramatic wall covering! Furniture and accessories add a tremendous about of color and texture to any décor; and carpeting along with area rugs can sometimes be your room’s broadest expanse of color. Here are a few color tips to help you on your way!
C – Capture your room with excitement! If your room/s showcase any type of unique architectural feature like a 2 story wall – a fireplace wall – or even if you want to call attention to one wall in a room – nothing will capture that room’s excitement better than color! Wall covering – even artwork – as well as paint can provide any design plan with just the right touch of drama and excitement.
O – Optimize and enlarge your room’s appearance! Most people feel that white walls will help a small space take on a larger appearance. Actually, because white reflects the available light in your room, often times your space may seem a bit smaller due to the shadows reflected. Especially if a small room has little available natural or artificial lighting.
L – Light up your life! There’s no doubt about it! Color sets the mood for every single room design. How often have you entered a room that just seems “right”, and you were immediately filled with a sense of well being.
O- Outstanding brights! Reds are a strong stimulating color. Bright purples are stately and impressive; Greens are calming and restful; Oranges are cheerful and happy; Yellows are sunny and bright. Add some spice to your décor with some fabulous BRIGHTS!
R – Relax & Enjoy! After all is said and done, remember one thing. There is no such thing as a bad color – only bad combinations of color and personal likes and dislikes for certain colors. Color is like seasoning. It brings out the best in every décor!
