Paralyzed by Palettes?

 

Paralyzed by Palettes?

 

Color is easy….sometimes!  Here’s the thing: really, it’s just paint!     Color can transform an environment for a relatively small investment.  The lack of color is boring. While I certainly appreciate a monochrome scheme or a white scale room, the real trick is BALANCE!

A new home is much like the proverbial “Blank Slate”. Walls are plain, floors are bare, but with some planning, the blank slate can soon transform to reflect the charisma and personalities of the home’s inhabitants.

Here’s a couple of never-fail tips you’ll want to remember.

 

1)  Use Benjamin Moore Historic colors.  The color value is never shocking. The Chroma, Value and Hue are balanced.

 

Chroma  is the perceived strength of a surface color, the degree of visual difference from a neutral grey of the same lightness. Chroma is the “colorfulness” of an object relative to the brightness of a white object similarly illuminated.

2) Buy a pint of paint and use it to paint a poster board. Don’t forget to label it with the exact paint number as listed on the can.  Pin the board on the wall you’re expecting to paint to look at it at night and then again in the morning.  Move the painted poster board to adjacent walls.

 

Depending on the light, surroundings, furnishings in the room, etc, the value changes. Better to decide with the investment of a pint of paint and a poster board than to come home once the paint is up to discover you don’t like it!

The kitchen you see here is a project I completed for a NYC apartment. The vibrant colors found in peacock feathers is an example of inspiration for the colors you can use for your project.

The blues in a rug that the homeowners used in an adjacent room, plus the magnificent view of the Hudson right outside their window, boasted the lovely warm teals and blues that I used in the kitchen.

Just about anything that “speaks to you” can be an inspiration for color. A dress that makes you feel special, a favorite piece of art, anything that elicits an emotion when you gaze at it, can be your next color choice for a home decor project.

 

Taking an element of the interior and using it as a spring board for ideas is a trick of the trade! Together, we will find inspiration from the stunning view outside your window, the design in a printed fabric you’re already using, or a peek of color represented in the artwork that will adorn the walls once all is said and done.

Even if you don’t think you’re ready to get started, why not call 973.886.2372 to schedule a free in-home consultation today?

Balance is key! Good design is all about the

balance of scale, color, and texture.

She is very knowledgeable and has great contacts for whatever it is you are looking to do (and at whatever price point). Not only is she good at what
she does, but she is flexible and easy to work with!”

Autumn and the holidays are a great excuse for sprucing up the home! Will you have out of town friends and relatives staying with you? Do you feel ready? Don’t panic! You don’t have time to totally remodel at this point (that will have a spring deadline), but we can certainly freshen things up!

How about a color change in the kitchen? Could the family room use a little attention? How about a new piece of artwork for the guest room or the dining room? Maybe its just a quick makeover? Some new intentionally placed key accent pieces?

Dont “Fall” Behind!

[subscribe2]

Autumn often brings to mind a time of family and friends and entertaining.

When the air gets crisper, do you envision gathering with loved ones around a Thanksgiving table?

If the thought of out of state guests staying in your house over the holidays leads you to the conclusion that it’s time for renovation, then you need to start now. Renovations, even small ones, can take several weeks.  
 Depending on the scale of the alterations, you’ll want to consider the lead times.  Are there contractors involved?  Furniture orders?
I feel privileged to help my clients transform their homes into lovely and warm spaces they can’t wait to come home to.  As a seasoned professional, I will take care of all the pieces of the project, no matter how small the detail, so that it all comes together beautifully.
Let us do the designing and management, so you can work on making your guests feel right at home.

Balance is key! Good design is all about the balance of scale, color, and texture.

 

Let’s get started sooner than later, before you succumb to stress!
