Choosing a Color Scheme for Your Home

Color can give your home warmth, personality, create emotion and energy, it can be soothing, restful, powerful as well as being romantic, delicate and fragile.  Paint can give you all of these things for the least amount of money.

With the economy where it is today, we are all self conscious about the amount of dollars we are spending to improve our homes and living spaces.

One thing that you should remember when choosing a color is to choose a color that you like and can live with.  There is no reason to choose a color just because it happens to be popular at the time.  You and your family are the only ones living in these spaces and the colors should bring out your personality and reflect your taste.

Color Schemes

When I help a client with a color scheme, I always ask them if they are keeping the furniture they have or are they going to be replacing what they have.  If you are keeping existing pieces with patterned fabrics, we pull samples from that color palate.

It is a lot easier to choose paint color to match a certain fabric than the other way around. When the colors are chosen prior to the furniture or fabrics, your paint color may be off.  And what a difference the wrong color can make, even if it is just a minor shade off.

Dark vs. Light Wall Color

A lot of folks are afraid of dark colors thinking it is going to make the room look smaller.  If the room is really small to begin with, such as a small powder bath, it really doesn’t matter; if it is a very small space, why not make it dramatic?

By painting one wall with a darker accent color, it will push the wall back making the room look larger.  This is also a good idea for creating a focal point in a particular space.

Just remember you are the one living there, so enjoy it.
