So, if you are planning to paint bedrooms, bathrooms, vanities or cabinets in a colour (instead of a neutral), the BM VIP or SW PREMIER collections include 50 tried and true paint colours. Choosing the right colour is just so much easier (especially when you are trying to sell a colour to your client) because you can see it properly vs. a tiny paint sample.
And, if in fact, we are going to split hairs here on trending paint colours, I’ll remind you that beige is back, as I’ve been saying for a couple of years now. This means that within a few short years, all the stark white walls we’re seeing will also feel DATED and colour (including mid-tone beiges) will be all the rage.
Tired of guessing or trying to rely on your colour memory? Now you can take my system of Understanding Undertones® with you. The new colour wheel is a complete reference key of perfect, accurate examples of all 9 undertones in a portable format you can take anywhere. And, here are the best green grey paint colours in Benjamin Moore and Sherwin-Williams
I’m telling you that your client’s colour requests are about to become MUCH more complicated than, “paint it all white!” For example, how do you interpret their request for a “warm neutral”, a “dark white”, or an “earthier charcoal”? These are the kinds of requests we are seeing daily in my eDesign department.
We completely overhauled his home office, adding custom built-in cabinetry and wall moldings. Then we painted everything a deep blue gray (Sherwin-Williams Grays Harbor) that echoes the blue in the dining room draperies. My goal was to balance the cool tones of the walls by adding rich cognacs, browns, and brass. New furniture, window treatments, art, and décor brought the space to life.
Ever notice how those designer rooms you save on Instagram seem to be more than a sum of their parts? Maybe you try imitating the look, so you paint your walls the same colour and get a pretty new area rug to freshen up your room.Yet, when you step back and look at your newly decorated room, it doesn’t quite have the same elevated feel? Has this ever happened to you?Designers know that DETAILS are everything.
I love this solution if you really want pattern and colour in your kitchen, but you don’t want to commit to a trendy tile.Sometimes kitchens are functional but less than interesting spaces. A good wipeable wallpaper in a charming pattern can really wake up a space without too much commitment. There are gobs of lovely peel and stick papers out there in every imaginable colour and motif.
Here’s a neutral vs. saturated colour tip: An easy way to know if the colour you’re looking at is a neutral rather than a saturated one is if you find yourself twisting your head to determine what colour it is. It’s easy to look at periwinkle and see it’s blue with a slight violet undertone, or at an apple green and see it’s green with a yellow undertone.
When decorating with white walls, the goal shouldn’t be complete desaturation. No need to eliminate anything warm, yellow or orange. Don’t judge your wall colour if you haven’t decorated. In fact, the first thing I would add to this kitchen is some warm wood tones, especially ones that are gold, beige, or orange and brown. Then, I would add a pretty accent colour. Find a pattern you love and choose an accent colour to decorate with.
Here’s a tip to help you identify when to use these pale neutrals: The mid-tone undertones of neutrals are much easier to see than the lightest ones. When you need to identify which undertone is in the furnishings and finishes, start with the mid-tone boards until you are confident you’ve got the undertone right.Then just pull out the complex cream or greige colour board in that same undertone, and you will have found the related beautiful colour to give your walls a soft white look.
Warm wood accents were used throughout to repeat the wood finish of the millwork. Like this antique dresser that just needed to be oiled. I added a new set of black hardware to properly repeat the iron bed finish and bring it to life.Remember, wood that has a strong colour in it needs to be considered as part of your colour palette. And, it needs to be repeated throughout the room.
The problem when you are looking at a space with nothing in it is that your eye isn’t satisfied. In a blank, unstyled room you are only going to notice the stark relationship between two slightly different neutrals. Those competing neutrals are the only thing you see. But, you can easily create some serious magic with decorating and details. Suddenly, your eye has more interesting things to focus on in the room. And that means you are longer cranky that your neutrals aren’t spot on.
