Color is a fun and easy way to bring personal style to any space. Unlike creating a mood with tones, color allows you to break up a space to make bright and bold statements. You can decorate with a pre-designed color palette, choose colors based on your favorite pattern, use color to accent or even just use color for the sake of using color. Basically, you can do anything and everything design-wise with color.
People will say that there is a way to design with color and there is a way not to. They might say that you should use color vertically and start with darker colors and hues on the floor and slowly transition to lighter color and hues the closer you get to the ceiling. They might say start with the front door and entryway s0 that you can color your way through the house to keep the color palette cohesive and consistent. They might tell you to stay away from this color with that color or that color with this color.
Want to know the cold hard truth about designing with color? Do whatever you want.
Pick whatever color(s) you want and start designing. Make as much or as little visual noise as you want! Picture your home as a coloring book, just add the color and complete the picture. Seriously, it’s really not that hard and no color is wrong. The best part about using color is you can always take some of it away. Trying to pair bright orange pillows on a dark blue sofa? Maybe opt out for white or light yellows to compliment. It’s all about playing and experimenting to figure what you like and want.
You might not get it right the first time and that’s okay. It really is part of the fun. The mixing and matching is all part of the game we love to call design. It will help you grow and understand yourself as well as design. And if you absolutely can’t get it right that’s what we have the pros like the Tuvalu Home Design Team for. Give ’em a call if you want a beautifully designed space, we promise you want be disappointed!
Have you enter a space and instantly felt comfortable? Felt at home? Do you ever wonder how a designer does that? Well, to be honest, there’s not just one single way to accomplish that feeling. There are actually many different ways. But let’s narrow down and focus in on one way you can accomplish this feeling in your home. If you haven’t guessed by the title of this post, “Decorate With Natural Tones”, then boy do we have surprise for you!
That’s right! Use natural tones to create a feeling of warm and cozy comfort. Warm tones create a sense of peace and familiarity. They welcome you with open arms and bring joy. Think about golden hour and how the sunset creates a tone of magical light. On the other side, blue tones are regarded as cold and sometimes lifeless. Think sterile, crime show morgue and you can feel how cold and empty the space is. These quick examples show how powerful tones can be in design. They can hit you subconsciously and transform your mood without you even realizing.
Once you realize that the tones throughout your home play a very powerful role, you can use them to decorate. Natural and neutral tones can help create a relaxed feeling and look in the home. It puts you at ease and is easy on the eyes, unlike a bright and colorful home that can bombard your visual sense (no offense to overly colorful homes, we applaud your bold decor). That’s not to say that colors don’t play a role because they can certain play a part in the show. Just apply subtly throughout and use the idea of less is more.
If you want a quick and easy visual reference to what we are talking about, look no further. We’ve grabbed a couple beautifully designed spaces that use natural and neutral tones that evoke the warm sense of welcome. Take a look, catch a feel and let it help transform your design abilities.
