Using a color story to decorate your entire home, can help you plan your entire space and reduce the need to buy items that will not eventually match your style. Here are some simple tips that will help you choose a color story for your entire home.
Choose colors that are comfortable – Start off by looking at your closet and what colors make you feel the most comfortable. If you are someone who wears a lot of black, white and grey, you should consider a minimalistic color palette. On the other hand, if you prefer prints and pastels, you should look at adding pastels and accessories to color your space.
Create a mood board – Once you’ve identified what colors you prefer, consider creating a mood board with interiors that match your color choices. Consider different textures, art, and rooms when collecting your ideas. A mood board will also help give you direction when shopping for furniture, art, and fabrics.
Mix neutrals and fun pops of color – Neutrals are a great way to mix bright colors into a space, without making a space too overpowering. Look at mixing colors like black, white and gray with a bright green accent or consider colors like beige, brown and burnt orange.
Focus on paint and permanent pieces first – Start off by planning out the color of your walls and then consider the main pieces in each room. Look at neutral shades for these areas and add color with your lighting, rugs, and other accessories.
