START SMALL

If you want to freshen up your space but are nervous about making big changes, start by tackling color in just one room. The best and most impactful ways are by adding pillows, art, and fresh flowers. Check back on this post as I will be blogging about my favorite online shops for pillows!

 

HOW TO PICK A COLOR

What colors do you like to wear? What colors dominate your wardrobe? What was your favorite nostalgic childhood memory and were you surrounded by a certain color? Was it a red dining room or being outside in a garden surrounded by pink and green flowers? After choosing one or two colors that you love, work with different hues within the same color family.

BE COHESIVE

If you are building or remodeling, make sure you lay out all of your materials and paint selections on the table to make sure the colors are cohesive throughout the house. 

 

SAY NO TO CREAM AND GRAY

When pairing color with neutrals, stick with vibrant neutrals like pure black and pure white.

START WITH AN OBJECT

If you are not inspired by color but you are inspired by a vibrant object or piece of artwork use that as your inspiration and pull two to three complementary colors to work with in the room.
