Begin with a Reference Point
Think of the colors you are naturally drawn to by looking at things like photographs you like, a piece of artwork, the colors in your wardrobe, and what colors you already have in your home. And, look for inspiration everywhere.
If you want to have multiple colors in a room, keep it to no more than three colors. And, if two are bold, make sure the third is neutral to give your eye a break.
Choose your boldest color first, then and then choose the others with the first color in mind.
Be bold in your decision. Paint isn’t permanent!
If you choose a grey, don’t limit yourself — there’s many grey variations that aren’t found directly in a grey palate. In fact, the best grey for you might be in the purple cards.
You can keep your walls neutral and also have a darker color. And remember, neutrals also include black, brown, olive and blue.
If choosing a bold color with a vintage feel, adding grey instead of beige will help make it look more modern.
Pairing warm colors with purple brings out purple’s natural warmth. For a modern look add a grey color to the mix.
If using red, think about the base color. Blue red is industrial, and orange reds are warmer.
Go with your instinct
Color is a very personal choice, so don’t be afraid to go with your instincts. You’ll be happy with the result.
