Go Bold or Go Home
The accent wall has become a popular staple for those who want to have a trendy, chic look and feel to their homes. It is a great way to use ra vibrant color that you love, and also a creative way to showcase some of your favorite décor. Accenting a wall has even been known to highlight the architectural features of your home. Taking the accent wall idea one step further has lead to even more stunning results. We call it the accent room, and we think that it’s the next big trend in home décor.
Décor with Personality
People often select neutral colors when decorating, to “play it safe” or to create a look that most believe will not go out of style. While neutral colors make great paint choices, nothing makes a statement quite like a bright, bold color can. Selecting furniture and accessories in similar shades has been known to pull an entire room together. This pairing can become the focal point of a space and create a unique, yet polished, look and feel. If you’re thinking about “going bold,” below are some tips to help you select that perfect shade.
Tips before committing to a bold color:
- Dark colors recede. When a room is painted a dark to medium color, the color will actually make the room look larger.
- When in doubt about a color, don’t limit yourself to small color chips or swatches. Paint big sheets of cardboard and prop them up in the room. This can give you a better idea of what it’s going to look like.
- Allow yourself the freedom to experiment. It may take several paint tests and swatches to land upon the perfect shade for your space.
- Different colors have been known to evoke different emotions and create distinct feelings in a space. Check out Feng Shui color rules to see what mood and feel your favorite color is said to inspire!
