Although it can seem daunting, color is actually a good thing to embrace and add to a space. At Window Treats here in Monmouth Beach, we’ve helped numerous customers with ideas for color and how to think about it. Read on for more!
How to Think About Color
Color sets a powerful tone for a room, and when you have guests, they’ll notice, even if they don’t realize it. Personal preference usually impacts color choice; however, how you use the color is just as important. See below for some tips on how to use color in a space.
Bold Can Be Beautiful
If you want to get out there boldly, think of one surface area (a primary focal point like a standout wall, your kitchen backsplash, or the window fashions), and use that color for it. Use complementary colors throughout the room, such as in furniture, décor, and (again) window fashions—custom drapes from the Hunter Douglas Design Studio™ can help you land on just the right color.
Saturate with Color
For intensity, saturate your space with color to create a lasting impression. Be sure to choose your color carefully and always keep it balanced with hints of neutrals.
Neutral Shades Doesn’t Equal Boring.
Speaking of neutrals, keep in mind that neutral color palettes are timeless and classic. Plus they bring a certain serenity to the space. Window fashions like Duette® Cellular Shades are offered in numerous neutral colors to enhance a room.
See Texture as a Color
Stone, wood, slate, and woven materials bring dimension to a space and can complement your color palette or even enhance it. You can add these textures in décor or through furnishings like end tables. You can even find window treatments that add texture. Provenance® Woven Wood Shades are created from reeds, woods, bamboo, and grasses and come in over 80 material and color options.
You can build an entire color scene around a piece of furniture or art. Use custom upholstery to plus-up an old sofa or use your window fashions as the focal point—with the Fabric by the Yard™ program from Hunter Douglas, many window treatment fabrics are available for purchase separately, so you can create throw pillows, valences, or other finishing touches that will perfectly match your window.
