Blue is the #hue to have in your home. Smoky blue, navy, coastal, gray-blue, sky blue, you hue (that’s not a color, I was just seeing if you were paying attention). Use blue in just about any room of the home. If you use it in the foyer, keep it really light and soft. Want it for the bathroom? Go coastal. Bedroom? Smokey slate blues are the best. Navy is great for accents features in a home.
Green is ok, just stray away from pea green or greens that contain too much yellow. Beach glass green is still HUGE and if you like Emerald, use it sparingly. Try a green in the bedroom to promote relaxation.
Be careful of beige. It’s not as innocent at you think. Choose a beige that is a little too pink and you now have the dreaded pinky-begie aka “band-aid” color on your wall. I’m finding that many of my clients just want beige out of their home and are replacing it with light gray. It’s a really pretty look especially for your foyer.
Purple is a sexy color for the bedroom. I’ve written about this so many time and its’ for a reason! Purple, and I’m not talking about Disney purple but a soft muted hue that both men and women will like. It’s a really great comprise when it comes to choosing a color for the Master bedroom.
Warm grays look great in the kitchen because it matches most grout colors. Now here is another subject that I just spoke about so many times. Kitchens really don’t have that much wall space because of all the cabinets and appliances so I like to choose a quite color that will coordinate with your backslash. Choosing a color that matches your grout is a great ideas since most backsplashes are designed using beige tile with an off white or cream grout or gray-cream tiles that have a grayish grout.
You can put dark colors in a small bathroom. Just because the room is small doesn’t mean you have to put a light color in there. Make the space interesting and choose color, not colorless. I was recently published in STIR Magazine talking about this very subject.
