Moving in to a new home or renovating your current one? Either way, you’ll need a good paint job—and matching interiors.
Truth is, the color palette you choose for your home will determine how livable it will be in the next couple of years. Well, sort of. Your home may be decked with state of the art appliances and must-have furniture and fixtures but it will still end up giving you the humdrum feels if the colors are dull and drab, or totally contradicting to your personality.
So, splash some color on those blank white primer walls and match it with complementary accent pieces. Use these color combinations inspired by everyday things and scenes as a springboard for your brand new or renovated home!
1. Life’s A Beach
Where to begin with this exceptionally well-loved color scheme? If you live in a home that’s surrounded by natural lighting, this easy breezy everyday-summer feel is a great option. You can relax your mind and escape the stress of everyday life at your very own beach inspired home. A custom-made futon for your sleeping area will work well with this theme, and roman curtains will give your windows a much needed shade (and accent) from the sometimes harsh weather conditions.
If you’re the type of person who applies the Japanese art of minimalism in your everyday life, this monochrome color combo is for you. You can leave your walls white and accentuate your home with furnishings and fixtures in varying hues of black and gray. Glass coffee tables and wall-mounted metal shelves blend well with this concept.
A welcome retreat especially for those living in the middle of a buzzed up urban jungle. This color theme evokes the feeling of serenity and tranquility and fosters a sense of peace and quiet. Place a few pieces of greenery in different areas of your home, such as windows and balcony, and complete the Zen feel with custom made wooden or bamboo furnishings.
Inspired by a sunset scene that is as calming as the Zen palette but intended for people who are not too fond of natural lighting. This is the combination of choice for those who love drapery and mood lighting. Chandeliers, designer lamps and alike go well with accentuating the stillness and quietude radiated by this color scheme.
5. Morning After Rain
If you’re the type of person who loves the tranquil outdoors and nature, here is the perfect color palette for you. Inspired by how a garden would look like the morning after a night’s drizzle, this combination exudes a light and refreshing vibe. For your bathroom, you can go all out on dark green tiles and match it with mint green toilet ceramics and accessories.
Achieve a garden feel inside your home with this color palette. This soft pink, warm green and mellow yellow combination elicits the light and airy feeling of calmness one feels when walking in a garden full of flowers in bloom. Ideal for the bedroom–with a whimsy canopy bed to complete the overall look.
7. Frostings And Fillings
Yes, you can select a color combination that’s based on food. This palette is an easy one to pull off because shades of blue and pink just go together naturally. You can choose to leave your walls white and put all the pink, blue and beige accents on your furnishings. This particular color splash will be perfect for any type of kitchen.
