Common color palettes for your home

When it comes to choosing color schemes to help liven up your home, your tastes play a great part. However, if you’d like to make a guided decision on how to ensure that you’re home will still look chic even decades later, here are a few tips from the experts.

In no particular order of preference, they are as follows:

  1. Minimalist black and white - Many experts and homeowners admire the simplicity and elegance of the black and white combination. Colors will definitely pop against this stark background. Though it does exude a more masculine appeal, you can soften it by playing up the white more and using black as accents.

 

  1. Auburns:  Is Fall your favorite season? If so, recreate its warm, inviting vibe with the use of fall colors – pumpkin, rust, maple and etc. Painting the walls and decorating with these particular shades will help build a warm, cozy environment perfect for family homes.

 

  1. Hues of blue:  Think winter or a cool, calm lake. Take the soothing hues to build a peaceful, calming abode. White and gray furniture against blue will look simply divine, and will have your home looking effortlessly chic.

 

  1. Evergreen – Bring in the colors of nature to help rejuvenate the spirit. There is something inherent in all human beings which is soothed by a wall of green. Spruce up the green palette with complementing colors such as yellow, pink, and the like.

  1. Stay in Shade- Choose a color that you like and use different shades. You can also stay within the color scheme, but make it more interesting by playing up textures and hues. For example, for a crisp white room, you can create a more pleasing visual by introducing a textured rug or an interesting crystal chandelier.
