More than any other decor choices, color can enhance your mood in a given space. Want to know what colors would work for you in your space? Here are some suggestions:
Feel the Drama - Want to make your guests feel like they stepping into formal and dramatic space? Then deep, rich gem tones are the way to go. Pick a neutral that will ground the space and make the colors pop. Dress up the space with sparkly or shiny accents. After all, any beautiful evening gown would be adorned with some gorgeous jewelry! *emerald green, sapphire blue, ruby red velvet are just a few colors to try.
Perk it Up - Maybe happy and full of energy is how you want your space to flow. You want bright, cheery complimentary colors for this mood! Again a subdued neutral color for the furniture in the space, with a few pieces of vibrant solid hues to perk it up. Using a colorful rug to tie all the colors together and simple wood pieces will help keep all the colors from feeling chaotic. *vivid violet, bright sky blue, grass green, orange and yellow are all nice cheery colors
Calm it Down - You need a space for a retreat. You want to feel calm and serene in the space. Think muted chalk-like colors. Color is still important, but just as light and airy as can be. A white ceiling with the same muted undertone will also make the space feel calm. The neutral in this space--in the furniture and accessories should continue to keep the space quiet and peaceful. *pale blue, green, pink and gray all have a calming effect.
Your Space - What mood do you want to have in your kitchen, dining room, living room and bedroom? Determine that then go with the colors that invoke that feeling in YOU. Not everyone will feel the exact same way with color, but, you live there, so be sure it's what you love first!
