It’s all too easy to get overwhelmed by the thought of how to incorporate color into your home. Done right it can be the making of an inspirational, bright, and vibrant, haven that will pop at every turn and keep you continually excited. But done badly it can look like a mish mashed muddle of half formed ideas and create a disjointed and oppressive overall feel.
Because of this, many people find it tempting to play it safe and err on the side of caution by simply sticking to neutral tones throughout their home. But where’s the fun in that? Here’s how to create a colorful home.
The first step to creating a colorful home is to get inspired. Get your creative juices flowing by looking at your favorite interior design magazines, drawing on your most liked home decor blogs, and checking out how friends or family use color in their homes. But don’t stop there, if you see a color or shade you like then take a snap of it whether you’re on the subway or in a restaurant. This inspiration will serve as the basis of your home design.
Create Your Palettes
Once you’ve got your imagination flowing it’s time to gather all of that inspiration into one place. How you do that is entirely up to you, whether it’s a scrapbook, by creating boards on Pinterest, or even spreading everything out on a dining table. This stage will help you visualize how your colors can work together allowing you to create various exciting palettes. Now you can narrow down which palettes will work best in which room.
Consider Neutral Walls
One great way to really make your colors pop is to juxtapose them against neutral walls. So if you’re planning on introducing some bright colors through furniture, fittings, or accessories, then consider painting your walls in white, magnolia, or some other subtle neutral tones. It can be an effective way to make the colors you use stand out even more.
Add Some Canvas Art
Canvas art is probably the simplest and cheapest way to add some color to your home. Here at Artzee Designs we've got an incredible range of stunning pieces that will suit any and every style of decor. Whether you’re going for a modern or classic look, peping up your kid’s room, or simply trying to introduce some tones and textures, canvas art is a cost effective and easy way to do this.
Ultimately home decor is about your personal preferences, so above all it’s important to create a colorful home that you love. Forget about fads and trends and what other people suggest goes together, if you like it and think it works together then don’t be afraid to let loose. Some good tips though are to look at colors that work together in nature, to combine primary colors, and to opt for a different theme in each space.
