Colors are the easiest way to give a space some personality, but
what vibe are you wanting to give off? From relaxing to energizing,
certain colors exude different moods that could either help or hurt
your decorating style.
Quick tip: To keep your worn furniture and décor
looking sharp, the
Ultra Mark wood stain marker will replace color on painted and
wood surfaces just like writing with a marker. With hundreds of
shades, you'll be able to refresh your area easily, even as your
design style changes.
Reds are fun because the combinations are endless. The deeper
the shade of red, the more drama you can add to your space by
pairing it with blacks and magentas. The brighter the hue, the more
passion and confidence your home décor will give off. Watch how
much red you use though- too much can easily be overwhelming and
prevent you from relaxing.
When you think of orange, you might find yourself thinking of
sunsets and freshly squeezed orange juice. Looking for warmth?
Think of the colors of fall. Looking for energy? Think tangerine.
Sometimes people pick an orange hue over a red out of fear of being
too bold. Personally, we're totally here for that swap!
One of the more difficult colors to work with is yellow, but if
you match it correctly you'll create a warm space your family will
want to spend time in. Wood furniture and accent furnishings pair
nicely with warmer yellows. Pair a citron yellow with blacks and
greys for a modern twist.
Similar to blues (see below), earthy greens can provide spaces
with comfort and relaxation. Emerald green gives off the vibe of
royalty and class. Lime and citrus greens promote excitement, which
would make for a great accent color in the kitchen.
Blue tones can be calming and provide an otherwise neutral space
with a touch of color without going overboard. Because of the
soothing effect this color provides, we recommend playing with the
different shades and textures of blue in your family room and
Light pinks and nudes seem to pair naturally and give your rooms
a sense of femininity. Softer pinks can easily be paired with blues
and greens for a subtle accent to the space. Taupe and blush paired
with mixed metal tones can easily give a room dimension.
