I have to admit, I'm bland. Personally, I love neutrals, grays, whites, creams, taupes and all things calming. It might be because I'm a wife, mom of three teens and a business owner. You think?! Seriously, I like calm colors for my own personal style. But when it comes to my interior design projects, I jump at the chance to integrate colors when a client wants them! I'm not afraid to make a bold statement in a space through color, 'cause let's face it color makes you happy. One of the best ways to pull off color in a space is through paint. In addition to paint, I like to pull in pops of color through art, rugs, pillows, and accessories. It's not hard really, it's simply pulling the right color combinations and styles. Here are a few quick pops of color (pillows), I found just running my errands at a local Target.
Color can be bold or simple, and comes in every style imaginable. I enjoy bringing it into a design in the simple accents like pillows, art, and accessories because I like to have the ability to change things out if the color loses my interest, rather than investing in a bold statement piece like a sofa or table. Don't get me wrong, I do go for the bold pieces for those modern and eclectic clients who want them, but that is more of a rarity than the norm.
There are so many fun color combinations trending these days as well. I of course love Navy with a pop of chartreuse or gray with a pop of purple or orange. There's endless opportunities when it comes to color. Color doesn't bite, so don't be afraid to pop it in your space. When you use color in a stylish-sophisticated and well-designed way, it really give you a finished space that looks designer.
