To create a fresh palette start with a foundation of two to three colors. Find inspiration from a great pillow, fun decor piece or fabric swatch and pull out your favorite hues.
Is it time for a room renovation but you’re not sure where to start? Don’t worry, you don’t have to start from scratch, and you don’t have to do everything at once. As long as you have a plan, there’s no reason you can’t move forward in phases – and fresh colors make a great beginning!
To create a fresh palette, choose one or two key colors for your room. Use a pillow, fun décor piece or piece of fabric for inspiration and pull out two or three key colors to be your foundation. Think of the design process in layers — the trick is to coordinate and contrast. If everything — paint, accessories, furniture and flooring — is the same color, the room will feel flat. Crank up the drama by layering colors with accessories that can be easily changed or metallic accents that add brilliance to a color scheme.
Remember, a well-executed color palette can transform any space with great results.
