Color sets the tone of a room in an instant. Whether you choose a bold color or something neutral, color sends a powerful message. While choosing colors is greatly influenced by your personal preference, how you use color matters just as much as the color you choose. Offering window coverings and interior decorating services to the Buckhead and Atlanta areas, the design professionals at Georgia Blinds & Interiors can help you make your favorite colors work beautifully in any room. Here are some ideas to get you started:
Meet in the middle. If you’re not quite ready for bold and bright, but you don’t want to go neutral either, consider “pseudo-neutrals” such as blue-gray or earthy olive tones. Gray is also a great way to add brightness to a room without going too bold. From silvery tints to deep smoky shades, gray colors and patterns can create a beautiful decor.
Color and texture work together. Natural woven wood patterns for window treatments, for example, add both color and texture to your windows. Other natural elements can also bring the calmness of nature to your rooms, such as textures replicating shells, sand, plants, and crystal.
Get inspired by fabric. Custom made drapery, pillows, and window toppers can lead you to a primary color scheme or be focal points in and of themselves. Striped drapes, checkerboard valances, or bright art panels can direct the eye to your room’s favorite features.
Accessorize. For great visual interest, build subtle color scheme around a standout piece of furniture or art. To keep costs down, shop thrift stores for unique pieces of art. Custom upholstery can change a drab piece of furniture into a focal point of a room.
Look at color saturation. Another aspect of color in interior design is saturation, or intensity. An intense color scheme can make a lasting impression. Choose highly saturated color carefully, and be sure to keep it balanced.
