33 Best Color Decorating Ideas House Painting Images
Color decorating ideas can be inspired by two seemingly unrelated colors. Blue and green can be an exciting or natural color palette. Think of the colors of sea glass for mosaic tile for a muted master bath that still uses several colors. Pair it with taupe for an unusual color scheme that will still read more like a neutral.
Decorating with color can still give you sparkle without being garish. Metallic can be part of a color scheme for an easy to put together space that still has an opulent air. Red and yellow are close together on the color wheel and they can work in rooms even if you aren’t doing a French Country theme. You won’t even think of McDonald’s. Instead of yellow try gold for an autumnal accent that feels elegant. Make a focal wall full of ornate gold mirrors that will break up the bold red color palette. If you have smaller rooms try a winter wonderland theme. Create the space with silver or pewter tones and an ice blue paint color. Tone down terra-cotta with ivory and mirrored furniture for a space that is at home in a Southern Mansion. Frame simple botanical prints, you can even create your own post card prints. Use the smaller frames in large groups to create a statement.
Color in decorating can be soothing and interesting at the same time. Yes you can have it all. If you love neutral colors try pattern. You can have a damask bed skirt and paisley wallpaper if it’s all the same taupe to create interest and a sense of liveliness in your space. Neutrals allow you to work with existing carpet, paint and furniture and are pleasing to a wide variety of people. For a true neutral room pickle wood paneling or ceiling beams so they blend in with ivory and taupe touches. Stain the table legs or feet on the furniture as well as the fireplace mantle the same color.
Decorating color schemes may be overwhelming to put together. If you don’t know what to match a color with, just say no to a color palette. Instead use tonal colors for an elegant look that is easy on the eyes. Paint the same color in a different finish to simulate wallpaper stripes. Use three horizontal stripes for an easy paint treatment that gets noticed. Break up the color with deeper or lighter wood tones of the floor and accessories. You can even find wood charger plates for an organic element on the dinner table.
The right home decorating color can reuse what you already have. This is a budget friendly alternative that is good for the environment. If you have a furniture piece that you hate, change up the color. Sure, it will still stand out but at least this time it will stand out for more than just being an eyesore. If you’re going to get rid of the piece anyways you can afford to take more risks. It will still end up at the thrift store anyways, right? You may just not be thrilled with the tone or wood pattern. Bright lime or orange paint can turn that poster bed from the 80’s from a liability to an asset. Keep the rest of the room neutral so the new furniture color can be the star.
