Wouldn’t it be wonderful if we could transform every room in our space and still remain on budget? Well designer Vita Anne Burdi, CKBD from DJ’s Home Improvements says you can by using color!
When redecorating, most homeowners look into purchasing a new set of furnishing and accessories to transform the feeling in their space. Purchasing a new set of furnishings is often a more permanent change and not as easily interchangeable as paint color.
By simply changing the color of your space from a cool to a warm tone this will automatically breathe new life into your room and vice versa!
When to use warm, rich colors:
Warm colors are best when you want to make your room feel cozy. Using a rich and bold accent wall will shorten a long or narrow room. In addition, using dark wood furniture such as espresso, mocha and black tones adds visual weight to your furniture pieces and therefore, makes them stand out as focal point in your room. Some designers, when faced with the challenge of working with very high ceilings, use a dark color or heavy treatment to visually lower the ceiling height.
When to use cool colors:
You often see cool and light colors used when a designer is trying to portray a very airy and calm space. Light wood tones or paint colors with little saturation are used to expand a space. This allows the natural sunlight to reflect rather than be absorbed by a darker tone. When a cool-toned paint color is used with white furniture, your eyes are able to pass through the room with ease and not land on a particular piece of furniture or accessory.
When using color as a paint choice or in your furniture selection, think about the natural energy association each color holds. Evaluate if that association agrees or clashes with your room’s mood.
