Reupholster your headboard!

Whether you DIY or pay a professional, this is an easy update with a big impact! Use a patterned fabric as a focal point in the room or use a solid color that will add class and sophistication to your space. The choice is yours!

Adorn your wall

Sometimes all it takes is a piece of artwork or a new accessory to really transform a room. Mirrors are a great way to bounce light around the room, and there are so many options that can add a glamorous vibe to your space. A gallery wall or a large piece of artwork are also great options for adorning walls.

Add an accent wall

While painting one wall in a room is a popular choice, adding a more architectural accent has a certain unexpected extravagance. Plank walls are very popular right now and are easy to DIY. Other options are wainscoting or molding in a contrasting color to the walls. Even a mural would create a unique accent to a blank wall. The options are endless!

Update with an Area Rug

Area rugs are a great way to make a big update without updating the actual flooring. Swap them out seasonally or find the perfect year round area rug. Whether you are constantly updating or in for the long haul, area rugs are a great way to make a not so permanent change with a big impact.

Update your bedding

Whether you’re indulging in a higher thread count, changing up your color scheme or finally adding a canopy to your four-poster, switching up your bedding has the potential to instantly transform the whole room. You spend roughly a third of your life in bed, might as well love it, right?

Double up!

Maybe you’re revamping your guest room, or maybe you have a recently empty nest. As the purpose of your room evolves, so can the bed arrangement. While some people may opt for a bigger bed, doubling up is a great way to prepare for future guests. Perhaps there are grandchildren in your future? Or maybe just some in-laws who like to visit for longer periods of time. More beds mean more options.

Do something crazy!

Bored with the same old look and feel? Looking for something new and exciting? Think out of the box. Display your hobbies in an interesting way, add a unique piece of furniture or an interesting light fixture. One crazy piece can make a brilliant focal point in a minimalist white bedroom. Let your creativity shine!

Choosing the Perfect Accent Color

March 18th, 2015

It’s easy to choose one color for a room. But what if you want a little more depth? Choosing colors that work well together without overwhelming a room is sometimes a much harder process. But before you give up completely and paint everything back to white, here are a few suggestions.

colorwheelBack to Basics: First let’s start with the Color Wheel

Primary colors: Yellow, red and blue.

Secondary colors: Green, orange and purple.

Analogous: Colors that are neighbors on the spectrum, such as green and yellow, or red and purple.

Complementary: Colors that oppose each other on the spectrum, such as green and red, or yellow and purple.

 

primary2 primary

Primary

Blue and Yellow Yellow is the lightest and brightest hue on the color wheel. Since it’s naturally warm, the most classic pairing is a cool blue. Blue is the least intense color choice possible. Whether you pick muted pastel shades like the bedroom above, or pair a bright sunshine yellow and a deep navy, balancing a warm yellow with a darker, cooler helps keep the room from feeling too loud or busy.

Primary Trio Blending the three primary colors together is a timeless tradition found across history. Starting with blue walls, add a few hits of red (a couple pieces of furniture work great) and finish with yellow spot colors for a dynamic trio of color.

 

secondary

Secondary

Green and Purple This dark eggplant room is brightened up considerably by a splash of lime green accent wall. The bold violet hue is anchored by green which is a naturally flexible color (like a flower grounded by a stem) so the room feels full of color without overwhelming you with contrast.

 

complementary complimentary2

Complementary

The secret to using a complementary color-scheme successfully is to let the primary hue dominate, in a muted shade, while accenting with small doses of the secondary color. This helps keep your room lively without looking too crazy. The light blue dominating the room above with splashes of bright orange is the perfect example. Likewise, the pale yellow walls of the second room, paired with the warm tones of natural wood, create a warm neutral environment. The purple shelving creates interest without diminishing the tranquility of the space.
