Tips for Creating Harmony With Color

Posted on Thursday, March 28, 2024

Wondering how to create a sense of harmony in your new Balmoral home? We have two words for you, “repeating color.” Choosing a color scheme that repeats throughout your home can create a harmonious look that ties your home together while still allowing each room to have its own unique flair. Here are some tips for connecting with color.

Consider Your Preferences

Start by thinking about colors you naturally gravitate toward. Do you prefer warm tones like reds, oranges and yellows, or cooler tones like blues, greens and purples? Don’t just think in terms of paint. Carpet, countertops, tile and cabinets should all nod to your preferred color scheme.

Analyze Your Space

Take note of the elements in your home, such as furniture, flooring and architectural features. Choose a color that complements these elements rather than clashes with them.

Set the Mood

Different colors evoke different moods. For example, blues and greens are calming, while yellows and oranges are energizing. Consider the atmosphere you want to create in each room.

It Should Flow

Select a main color that will be the primary focus throughout your home. This doesn’t mean every room has to be the exact same color, but there should be a consistent thread tying them together.

Time for Accents

Once you have your main color, you can incorporate accent colors to add visual interest. These could be complementary or contrasting shades that appear in smaller doses throughout your home.

Don’t Commit Until You Test

Before committing to a color scheme, test paint samples or fabric swatches in different rooms and lighting conditions to see how they look throughout the day.

Start in Neutral

If you’re unsure where to start, consider using a neutral color as your base and then adding pops of color through accessories like pillows, rugs, and artwork.

You Be You

Ultimately, your home should reflect your personality and style. Don’t be afraid to choose colors that you love, even if they’re unconventional.
