Colors To Dye For

Everyone knows what tie dying is. We’ve seen it on t-shirts in the malls, on friends, television shows and I bet most moms and dads have them.

The dilemma is if we are using tie dye shirts as a color inspiration for a room, what color do we paint our walls? Do we use a neutral and just use the tie dye colors as accents here and there or do we go for it and put these bold and crazy colors on the wall?

There is no right or wrong answer. It depends on who you are. If you are a teenager, chances are those walls will be black with splatter of these vibrant colors all over the place.

An adult? I can see a neutral wall with one of these colors as an accent. Perhaps on the wall where the headboard is. Another option is to incorporate the cold colors in your bedding, drapery or just in colorful accessories.

The answer? Color blocking. You can add blocks of color to a neutral wall such as the one below. Color can be in the form of squares, stripes, rectangles – any shape at all!

This blocking technique is the extreme but it’s still an option if you want the wild colors of tie dye. There are times when I will use a block of color in a kids room. I usually put it in place of the headboard and only just beyond the with of the bed. It’s really a great way to make a mom happy with a neutral wall color and the kid gets the splash of a wow color.
