Creating Balance: Natural Pops of Color
Building a custom home is all about choices. Instead of settling for a pre-packaged set of finishes, a custom home client has a passion for creating something uniquely their own. Each decision reflects a specific lifestyle. Every furnishing expresses a distinct taste. Savvy observers of rising home trends, we know our clients bring a lot of knowledge to the table! However, it remains our job to stay educated and informed on all things design.
One element of design we feel most strongly about? Color. Often misused and abused (we’ve all seen those homes, right?), when approached with thoughtfulness color can transform any space. In the hands of a skilled designer, color is a secret weapon – it brings places to life! Color influences how we process environments and helps shape our moods. Warm tones make us feel welcomed or stimulated, while cool hues promote relaxation and serenity.
Picking a room’s color scheme may come naturally since it often flows from your home’s overall style. However, we find that people often miss the boat on color’s most useful attribute: providing balance. Bright, bold, and playful pops of color are the icing on the cake – the finishing touch that brings a room together! We can’t help thinking that the experts at Pantone were on the same wavelength when they picked their 2017 color of the year. Their lively shade, greenery, brings a rejuvenating burst of nature indoors!
Our designers often use plants to complete the look of our client’s spaces. They’re the perfect accent to add color, texture, and variety to any interior. Well-placed floral and botanical arrangements especially help to break up more neutral homes. Their striking colors draw your eye and guide it through the room.
