We are going to do a Decoration 101 Episode
Once you have figured out what style of interior you want and how much you want to spend, your next decision is: What colors should you use?
I recommended collecting photos of rooms that you like. And don’t just limit yourself to room shots.
Are there certain color palettes that appear over and over? Is there one color that you find yourself liking the most? That should help you choose an overall palette for your decorating project.
Bear in mind that just because you like a
color doesn’t mean it’s necessarily ideal for your project. “What mood are you
trying to achieve?”. Do you want the place to be bright and cheery, or dark and
cozy? If it’s the former, brown may not be the right color to emphasize in your
interior even if you love it.
Consider your location and the amount of light you have as well. Bright, hot colors work well in warm, sunny climes, where the sun diminishes their intensity. But they may not look as good in grayer northern climates.
Another approach to choosing color is to take the hue from an object you already own — ideally, an investment piece like a work of art or a rug. If you love the item, then you will usually love the same colors reflected elsewhere in the room.
Now that you’ve chosen some colors, where should you use them? If you like to jump on the current trendy color, realize it may become dated quickly, and you’ll have to spend money to change it. If you want your decor to feel current longer, steer clear of fads, or apply those colors in accessories like pillows that you can change out easily.
Once you’ve chosen your color palette, the temptation is to start off by choosing your paint. “Pick the paint color last. “Many people paint a room and have to decorate around it — which is almost impossible. Select fabrics and rugs first, then you can choose a color which works with the room as a whole.”
That’s my advice for Picking Colors for your Room.
