Let's talk color!
As a designer, there are two important questions that I ask my clients during the design consultation. The first one is how do you want your room to feel and the second one is what is your color inspiration for the space. Why these two questions you might ask. Well these questions are directly related. For example, if a client wants their space to feel calm and relaxing then we certainly wouldn't paint it red but would opt more for a blue or green. The color you choose will directly effect the overall feeling of the space.
So let's dive a little deeper into the colors and the feeling each one evokes. Take look at the graph below.
Once the client decides on the feeling of the space I present color options that will achieve the desired goal. Then onto the fun part! Developing a color scheme! I really love this step because it's where creativity begins and marks the beginning of the design process. I determine if the client wants a monochromatic, analogous, complementary, triadic, tetradic, or split-complementary scheme. Take a look at the chart below to see how a color scheme is created through the combination of specific colors.
Once the color scheme has been decided it's time to create a floor plan, source furniture/accessories and lastly select a paint color that supports the chosen color scheme. Now that you know a little bit more about the color inspiration for your project let me know below which colors inspire you most and what space you would like to use them in.
