Interior Decorating with Color

Color in Interior DecoratingColor is a powerful tool in interior decorating. Choosing the right colors for your rooms is mostly based on your personal preferences. How you use that color, however, is just as important. Offering interior decorating services to the Cleveland area, the design professionals at Timan Custom Window Treatments can help you make your favorite colors work beautifully in any room. Here are some ideas to get you started:

Go bold. Bright colors and bold patterns are very popular right now. If you want to use a bright and bold color or pattern, choose it for one main surface area, as a primary focal point in your room. Accent this main color with complementary colors on your window treatments and furniture.

Make a neutral statement. Neutral colors add warmth and softness to a room. The spectrum of warm neutrals ranges from linen and ivory tones to the richest sable and chocolate shades.

Compromise with color. If you’re not quite ready for bold and bright, but you don’t want to go neutral either, consider “pseudo-neutrals” such as blue-gray or earthy olive tones. Gray is also a great way to add brightness to a room without going too bold. From silvery tints to deep smoky shades, gray colors and patterns can create a beautiful decor.

Use color in fabric pieces. Custom made drapery, pillows, and window toppers can lead you to a primary color scheme or be focal points in and of themselves. Striped drapes, checkerboard valances, or bright art panels can direct the eye to your room’s favorite features.

Consider a color’s saturation. Another aspect of color in interior design is saturation, or intensity. An intense color scheme can make a lasting impression. Choose highly saturated color carefully, and be sure to keep it balanced.

Use textures of color. Natural woven wood patterns for window treatments, for example, add both color and texture to your windows. Other natural elements can also bring the calmness of nature to your rooms, such as textures replicating shells, sand, plants, and crystal.

Accessorize. For great visual interest, build subtle color scheme around a standout piece of furniture or art. Custom upholstery can change a drab piece of furniture into a focal point of a room.
