Nothing is as personal as color. Choosing a color palette is both the most important part and yet the most daunting part for many when it comes to decorating their homes. Read on and get some great tips as we help guide you to create the color palette that best suits your style, personality and lifestyle. Specifically, the living room, dining room and entry way. Choose a color scheme for those areas first, then pull one color from the scheme. For example, take the red sofa and tone it down (say, to burgundy) for an accent in more private spaces such as the den, office or bedroom.

Test out your colors with paint swatches and fabrics. Draw out plans of your rooms and sketch in the colors. If they work on paper, try painting small areas of your walls. You can buy any color paint in a sample size specifically for this reason. When painting sample areas look other rooms and how they connect so that you can create a flow from room to room so that the colors complement each other. An adjoining room may want a non accent or a neutral color, or conversely you can work with contrasting tones as well as long as there is always a semblance of flow.

For example yellow will be used with green or orange, or blue will be used with green or purple. This creates a colorful and often soothing palette. The contrast scheme is more dramatic. Here a triad of contrasting colors are used, such as yellow-orange, green-blue and red-purple. This introduces more color and energy into your home’s palette. Lastly we have the complementary scheme where two opposing colors, such as blue and orange, are used together to create a dramatic, bold and high energy color scheme.

Start by working from a color wheel. There are primary, secondary and tertiary colors. Primary colors are red, blue and yellow. They are pure colors and cannot be created. Secondary colors are orange, green and purple. These colors are formed when equal parts of 2 primary colors are combined. For example equal parts yellow and blue make green. As basic as this is this is where we begin the color selection. Tertiary colors are a mixture, in varying parts of secondary and primary colors to create different hues, as a result the primary and secondary colors become less vivid. White and black are often added to darken and soften these hues.
