Our 3 top home design and color tips:
If all else fails, choose a neutral color
- One can rarely ever go wrong when choosing a neutral toned paint for their home exterior or interior. Neutral tones can range anywhere from white, beige, green, blue and grey. The key to making the color work for your space is to pay attention to the undertones in the colors. For example, a grey color can have a “cool” or a “warm” undertone which will impact the way that you see the color. A cool grey will look more blue or violet and a warm grey will look more brown or beige.
Pops of color
- If you watch HGTV or any design show, you will notice that most designers will use a theme in their styling. A great theme would be to choose a bright and bold paint color, and accent with pieces of furniture or decor like pillows, throws and rugs. Bold color trends for 2020 include navy blue such as Sherwin Williams “Naval,” deep purple such as Benjamin Moore’s “Pinch of Spice”, and dark grey such as Sherwin Williams “Peppercorn.”
Use the Golden Ratio
- You might be thinking, What is this? I’m here to tell you the secret of all the professional designers, which is called the Golden Ratio.The Golden Ratio is a mathematical sequence that has been found to occur over and over again in nature. This ratio – 1:1.61, to be exact – has been found to account for everything from the proportions of the human body, to the formation of musical sequences, and architectural formulas dating back to the ancient Greeks and Romans. Though it has diverse applications, most people believe that the use of this ratio makes things appear more aesthetically pleasing to others. The majority of interior designers are taught to use it in their designs and you should too. For furniture placement, keep a ratio of 2:3 in mind (if you don’t feel like taking out your tape measure). This will keep the space evenly balanced and not too crowded. When choosing paint colors, keep in mind the ratio of choosing a main color for 60% of the space, a secondary color for 30% and a bold accent color for 10%.
