A Dose of Color

Color is one of my favorite things about design. I feel it’s so important (and fun!) to express yourself through color within your home. In contrast, I find that many people struggle with incorporating color into their homes. I am here to assure you that one should not fear color! Here are some great tips for diving into the wonderful world of color.

Tip #1 – Start small. If you’re anxious about adding color in your home, try starting with the smallest room in the house.

Why? It’s not as big of a commitment and you’ll spend less time and money. I think a powder room is a great place to try out a bold new hue.

Tip #2 – Introduce something that I call “some dirty”. Maybe a beautiful mahogany coffee table or a piece of reclaimed furniture to balance out the colors and ground the room. Photo Source: www.bhg.com

Tip #3 - Adding a hint of black – a lampshade, picture frame or other accent – will clarify and enhance all the other colors in the room. Source: elledecor.com
