Decorating Dialogue, Design Tips, Paint Color

Did you know that even a slight change in your color scheme can dramatically affect the look of your space? Yes, we all get tempted at some point to go a little crazy with color so we can really make a statement. We think that the shade we pick has to be loud or dark or daring to make a difference. Well folks, you can change your look without leaving your comfort zone. A well-chosen neutral tone can add warmth and charm to an otherwise stark and cold environment. And don’t forget the addition of artwork and accessories will punctuate the space with even more color and personal style.

Design Tips

Okay, let’s shine some light on this situation! One of the most over-looked steps in pulling together a well designed space is lighting placement. Effective lighting is the single most important factor in the overall look of your space. Without it, your room will look flat, dull and uninteresting. Great lighting comes in 3’s. Remember to include ambient (general) lighting, task lighting (for reading, etc)  and accent lighting for drama.  Ambient lighting usually comes from above in the form of recessed cans, ceiling fans,  single light fixture, etc. Task lights are table or floor lamps that bring the lighting down to your eye level. Accent lights can be wall sconces, spot lights, or up lights that sit on the floor and point towards the ceiling (usually placed behind a plant or piece of furniture).  All of these light sources combine to give your space a sense of  warmth and dimension.

Now that the furniture is in place, you can start layering in all the details. This includes deciding what artwork to bring back, what accessories to use, and what color scheme you will follow for accents such as pillows and throws. If you have wood or tile floors an area rug is highly recommended to anchor the main seating area. This would be placed first along with your main seating area, and your other color choices would be pulled in from the rug. Don’t forget to look for those hidden treasures from around the house as they will give your space that special custom feel that is unique to you and reflects your personality. In this room the fireplace was the most prominent feature and was given special attention.
