Decorating Your House With Bold Color
When trying to add a bold color to your home interiors don’t go overboard and make your guests run from the room! Bold color doesn’t have to be over the top in fact a saturation of color for your accent wall, could be all of the bold appeal you need. Here are several tips to use bold color to decorate your house. There are many different looks or tones a color can create. For example, some colors are very soft; think pastels, colors that are mixed with tons of white paint to get a lighter, softer color. Some colors are dark, rich jewel tones and others are bright, juvenile primary colors. Basically, you want to pick one look for your entire house. Not that you can’t have different, unique colors in every room, but pastel pink in one room, primary red in the next and deep, dark purple in another won’t flow well. The idea behind using color well is it should flow in your house, not be a patchwork of opposite looks. If you love color and are going for bold color throughout your home, pick one look.
It could be all light pastel colors or all jewel tones, which are rich, saturated colors that often resemble actual gems, in look and name, like emerald green, sapphire blue or ruby red. Second, for those not quite as adventurous with bold color, you don’t have to paint an entire room. Bring in one boldly colored accessory, fabric or rug. It’s often an easier way to incorporate bold color without going over the top or without making a costly mistake. Another way to add a dash of bold color is to try it in a small room.
