The Power of Color in Home Décor

home decorUnderstanding the power of color to alter a room’s ambience is an important part of making savvy home décor choices. Whether it’s the shade of the paint on the walls or the hue of the throw pillows on the sofa, color determines a room’s predominant mood and overall feel.

Bathroom Colors
In bathrooms, we see a lot of neutral fixtures and materials – porcelain commodes, stone tiles, clear glass shower enclosures, and so on. Color most often comes into play on the walls or in accessories.

Today’s trends favor making the master bathroom calm, peaceful, and refreshing, so restful shades of blue, green, and lavender paint are often utilized to create a soothing atmosphere. Simple white towels harmonize with the spa-inspired look, so any additional splashes of color will likely come from wall hangings or small accents like a soap dispenser.

In powder rooms and guest bathrooms, though, home decorators feel more at ease with putting the power of color to work through bold décor choices. These include:

  • •    Colorful wallpaper with eye-catching designs.
  • •    Vibrant paint colors.
  • •    Walls, ceiling, and trim painted the same bright hue.
  • •    Glamorous wall hangings – ornately framed mirrors, fancy wall sconces, large pieces of art

Living Room Tones
You can also use your understanding of the power of color to select living room décor that promotes your goals for the room’s purpose. Do you want it to be a technology-free zone for family conversations and games? A space where you can entertain friends? A quiet retreat where you can watch movies with your spouse?

Colors like yellow, orange, and red can visually energize a room. To ensure that your living room remains a space where you can unwind, you may wish to include these lively hues via accents such as throws, cushions, and vases.

When it comes to larger surfaces like walls and rugs, many homeowners are incorporating grey into their designs. This color adds sophistication and can bring a dated room up to speed with 2016 trends. Best of all, grey works with virtually any theme or color scheme, so there’s no need to totally change the space.

Highlighting Your Color Choices

However you choose to make the power of color work in your home décor, glass fixtures are great for highlighting your design. Clear or frosted glass shelves add to the sophistication of newly painted grey walls. A wall mirror replicates your living room’s brightest features. A frameless shower door keeps your fancy shower tile in view.
