Use of Color to Make an Impact
When selecting colors for your home you want to have a color scheme which is carried throughout the whole house. Decide on 2-3 main colors and incorporate various shades of those colors. Always use complimentary colors from the color wheel (usually opposite colors are best or colors next to each other).
Color choices and their representation:
Yellows: Positive, sunshine, (great for accent walls). Use for children’s rooms, office spaces or kitchens.
Greens: Tranquil, healthy, fresh, deep tones convey statue and wealth, pale ones are soothing.
Use in bedrooms, family rooms, living rooms.
White: Pure, contemporary, refined. Dark colors are enlivened when surrounded by white space,
can be refreshing or sterile. Use in contemporary rooms, homes.
Black: Serious, distinctive, bold and classic. Powder rooms, bedrooms(accent wall).
