I have a Color Crush! How do I make this work?
Are you in love with a specific color and want to incorporate it into the design of your home? Have you been saving colorful kitchen photos or dramatic bath photos as part of your home design wishlist?
There are many ways to add color and drama to your home design, especially if you know how to use color wisely.
Setting the Mood of a Room with Color
First think about your favorite color and identify how it makes you feel. Does it make you feel relaxed, energetic, comforted, or joyful? Then think about where you’d like to use it in your home and if that emotion fits the functionality of the space. For example, if blue make you feel relaxed you may want to consider using in a master suite. If a color makes you feel energetic and joyful, perhaps the kitchen is the perfect place for this color.
The Key to Accenting Color
They key is to accent your color, find what colors make the perfect backdrop and make your color the focal point of the room. Determine what are the key focal points in your room and how can you use your color to emphasize them. Here are some great examples of incorporating personal color choices successfully.
Adding an accent wall is one popular way to add a favorite color to a room. In this room the cabinets create the neutral backdrop for the vibrant green accent wall.
