Love green and gold? My client does! Thornton Oaks, Charlotte.
The wall color and drapery should look like they belong together. See the green from the wall color in the fabric? It ties in beautifully.
You can put dark colors in small bathrooms. Color won’t make your bathroom and bigger so you might as well make it an amazing color. Look how cozy this small bathroom is? I used a toasty color just on one wall and a creamy beige on the other. Black accents look amazing in this loo.
Taking a color from the bedding is a really good idea to unify the look of a guest bedroom. What came first – the wall color or bedding? You’ll never know!
Having a little fun in this guest room with a light lavender to pick up the purple hues in the art and bedding.
From the bedroom of this home in the Cureton subdivision in Waxhaw, this slivery blue was just what the client wanted! I choose a paint color that incorporates both the silver accessories and the blue in the bedding – together – it’s the perfect color for this master.
This is a home located in The Chimney’s of Marvin/Waxhaw NC. This large home has a very open floor plan. The main color palette as you can see is blue. The beautiful painting over the fireplace was the inspiration piece for the entire home.
This foyer is part of the same home in Marvin. See the colors I chose here? Can you see them again in the inspiration painting? When you have a two story foyer such as this one, it’s imperative that the rest of your color palette coordinates with this because you can see this room from just about all rooms in the lower level.
Located in Mt. Lebanon Pennsylvanian, this very color living room was actually mine! The dilemma here was working with the aqua sofa. I was very limited in the colors that I could use and beige was not an option. So, gold it was! This very warm hue was just what this cozy little living room needed!
Here is another home located in The Chimney’s of Marvin. Another consideration that is important is ethnicity and culture. The homeowner was of Indian decent and wanted very vibrant colors. This gold is just what they wanted!
FYI: Keep in mind that colors that may be beautiful to us can be offensive to certain cultures.
Gray. Very classy and still very popular – as it should be! You can do so much with it. It can be part of a coastal palette, contemporary – just about anything. Undertone are key to choosing the right gray for you.
Purple and lavender are some other colors that are a bit trendy but really cool if you know how to use them. We don’t want a Barney purple room but this soft lavender will help any guest to sleep in no time at all.
Aren’t you glad it’s not a red dining room? That’s one of my peeves that I constantly write about. It’s not that a red dining room is unattractive it’s just so. very. typical. Why hire a Color Specialist if you just want typical color? You can go to the box stores for that
