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:
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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
- 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.
