At Miskelly Furniture, we’re always happy to help you redesign your home and redefine your decorating style! Color is one of the easiest ways to do just that — it effortlessly adds character and style to a space. It has the ability to draw us in and shape our mood by warming, refreshing, soothing, or energizing. From the exterior of a home all the way to the dinnerware inside, color makes an impact on us daily.
Begin your color exploration by evaluating the hues throughout your home and let the dreaming begin. Getting started is as easy as one, two, three!
1. Think BIG
While the task at hand may be selecting a color for the walls of your living room or your new sofa, begin by creating a color plan for your entire home. Colors should relate and flow from space to space. If your home feels like a quilt of colors that are unconnected, start with a fresh, clean slate and build from there. You don’t have to paint everything at once, but it helps a lot to have an end product in mind.
2. Find Your Inspiration
Look at your favorite inspirational rooms from other homes or online, and notice the role that color plays in each. Now look at your rooms and visualize how they could be improved with color. Feel free to step outside of your comfort zone and experiment with new hues! Even a simple palette of barely there neutrals can be stunning if it’s well-planned.
Tip: You can even look into your closet for inspiration–your wardrobe can provide excellent insight into your natural color preferences.
3. Model Mother Nature
The natural world provides the ultimate inspiration. Look outside to find color harmonies that are pleasing and balanced. A classic interior color plan includes one main color and one or two accent colors. Start by finding a key fabric you love and look to it for color cues. You don’t have to match the shades exactly, but instead use it for your color inspiration.
