As serious interior design junkies, we find ourselves reading every piece of advice we can get our hands on. There are so many tips and tricks out there it can all get a little bit overwhelming. Before you go and paint the cabinets in your kitchen or revamp your furniture (BTW - we are reupholstering some chairs in collaboration with Bunglo soon), remember one simple rule: choose a base color palette for your home.
It sounds so simple, right? Well, it is simple yet so crucial. It will make everything so much easier when it comes to decorating your space. It gives you a game plan so if you are out shopping and something catches your eye, you know if it will work in your space before bringing it home.
Choosing your color palette is simple: you should select one base color (preferably a neutral) and 2-3 other accent colors. The easiest way to do this is to stand in your space and choose colors that you enjoy looking at. You also want to select colors that fit in with the space you have. Think about the fixtures in your home that are difficult to change, like the kitchen countertops or floor color, and try to work with the colors you see in there or colors within the same family.
For the accent colors, dont be afraid get playful! It is always fun to add a pop of color in any room of the house and color is always a great way to express your personality.
