Paint colors are often considered the simplest choice in decoration and interior design while this decision is one of the most important steps in the decoration.
Color is a reflection of your personality. To get a color that sticks to your skin, you need to know what you like, but most of all, which palette is best for you. You must then know how to integrate it into your decor according to the light, architectural elements, coatings, etc. Now with painters and decorators london you can find the best choices.
Gather images of decors where the paint color appeals to you. But don’t limit yourself to decoration! Choose images of all kinds (fashion, art, posters, etc.) that inspire you. Wallpapers and fabrics can also be a good starting point for a decorative primer.
If you hire a designer, this step will allow him to quickly understand your tastes and decorative aspirations.
Develop a palette
It is from these inspirations that we can begin to develop a palette of paint colors for our home. If you are starting from scratch, you can take any direction, but if you are like most of my clients, and already have colorful furniture and upholstery, you will have to take this into account.
- The coloring of this dining room was made from the fabrics on the chairs, and the eggplant countertops in the kitchen. On an immaculate white background, we added an apple green on a small area, which we arranged with colored curtain sections. In the living room, which is right next door, we used touches of eggplant on the walls to make a connection with the fabric of the chairs and the colors that we find in the kitchen. Note: a very dark paint color coexists wonderfully with very light shades.
- As the elements in place (fixtures and coverings) of this basement bathroom were very neutral, we could go almost anywhere for the colors. This fashion photo inspired us for coloring. We wanted to bring optimism to this bathroom, which at first seemed very ordinary. The colors have been toned down to avoid the overly striking effect of the paint color. In decoration, if we use saturated (vibrant) or dark colors, we must do so with restraint. We chose the darker blue, and we washed the green to avoid the two colors fighting against each other.
A work of art can very well be the basis of a palette of paint colors for his house. The coloring of this dining room is perfectly homogeneous. We carefully chose different versions of blue and turquoise in the fabrics, objects, and color on the walls.
