As I sit down to write my ideas on interior design, I was thinking about what it is that I have to convince clients into these days. And the easy answer is working with color. I have 90% of my clients say that want timeless. They don’t want to be changing their decor all the time. What I find funny about this is that most people do change their decor regularly. It may not be a large renovation but I think many of us like to shop, dream, and feel a change in our home. It may just be changing out pillows, or it may be repainting a room, but we welcome change.
I love color so it’s easy for me to use it. I think it can give instant drama. I often create a neutral backdrop and then add in pops of color here are there. My own house has white walls, white cabinets, a white chair and sofa. However, if you see my home, you wouldn’t think of it as lacking color. I have colorful art, pillows, lamps and wallpaper.
Here are a few of my favorite examples of using color successfully. The images I am sharing have some of the most positive feedback of the ones we share on Instagram. If you love these images too, but are scared to do it yourself, call me!
Wallpaper is one my favorite mediums. It makes a space dramatic, unique and custom. And it’s not as hard to change out as you think.
Paint is easy to do to bring in color. Mix it with some fun fabrics for a really vibrant color combination.
Choose a bold fabric and use it sparingly, or use it everywhere 🙂 Here, I did just parts of a chair for a large impact.
Have fun with color, it can add personality and fun to your space. Be sure and subscribe to our blog and share with your friends. And finally, don’t forget to follow us on Instagram @nobledesigns for daily inspiration.
