Did you ever realized that the paint you purchased doesn’t really go with the furniture? Did you find that the rustic furniture you purchased at a the department store wasn’t appropriate for the room? Did you use a wrong combination of color for the room?
Mixing colors for some people is an challenging thing. But it is no more than just a splash of paint for others. When picking colors for the room, start with the furniture you already have and then decide the mood you would like to present. The mood of colors and the furniture will help determine the compatibility of the colors. Matching the wall color with the furniture color is safe and modern. Choosing some contrasting or complementary colors is more adventurous and whimsical. Experiment with an inspiration board before committing.
Decide the main color scheme from the color that occupies most of the furniture. For matching or contrast, you can use that color. Once the color scheme is identified you can move the former furniture from different rooms to test it out, or shop for your new accessories such as throws and pillows.
The consideration for the color is that they must be attractive to the eye. A good rule of thumb is that if it can be found in nature, it will be attractive. The theory behind this is that Mother nature has already gotten humans used to the beauty found all around us. All we have to do is borrow from her.
The floor colors can be used to coordinate the furniture with the walls, of course with some imagination. The perceived color scheme can be added to the carpet, tiles, and wood. You can see how the color scheme will influence the furniture that sit on them also how they influence the adjacent walls.
Careful planning and nature’s color palette are all that’s needed to make furniture look great against your walls.
