At Rugs A Million, we believe that your home should be a reflection of your unique style and personality. If you're a lover of color, whether bold or subtle, we say celebrate it with passion in your home decor.
Much like putting together a stylish outfit, the colors in your home should tell a story and have a purpose. They don't need to match perfectly, but creating connections among your color choices can bring harmony to your space.
Start by establishing a neutral base with your major furniture pieces, like sofas and chairs. This provides a versatile canvas for you to introduce color through decor items that reflect the seasons or current design trends.
When selecting your neutral base color, consider how it complements your hero pieces and accommodates various color schemes that may come and go with changing trends. However, if you're passionate about a statement couch or vibrant furniture piece, don't hesitate to go for it, keeping in mind that it may be a long-term commitment.
At Rugs A Million, we believe that your color palette should make you happy. Your home is a reflection of your personal taste, so it's essential to choose colors that resonate with you and make you feel comfortable day by day.
So, where do you start when creating a color theme for your home? Begin with a hero piece in your room, such as a stunning rug or a piece of artwork. Let the colors in this hero piece inspire your overall color scheme or complement it. If your major items don't align with your color scheme, they may feel disconnected and disrupt the balance of the space.
Consider your surroundings when choosing your interior color scheme. If you have a view of the ocean, lush greenery, rolling hills, or a vibrant cityscape, incorporate the colors from these views into your interior to create a seamless connection between the inside and outside.
Here's an example to illustrate how we bring colors together:
Imagine a neutral living room with timber floors, a beige couch, matching armchairs, and wooden coffee and side tables—a blank canvas for endless color possibilities. Whether you opt for a combination of green, orange, and yellow or a more daring mix of pink, blue, and red, the key to a successful color scheme lies in color repetition.
No matter how bold or subtle your chosen colors are, repeat them throughout the room at least three times, whether as solid blocks of color or featured in patterned furnishings. This repetition ties the elements together seamlessly.
To bring the colors from your artwork or inspiration piece into your space, use cushions, throws, lampshades, ornaments, ottomans, vases, and floral arrangements that feature the same key colors. Ensure your original sofa and armchairs join in the color journey to maintain cohesion.
While mixing different fabrics and textures can add excitement to your decor, be mindful of overloading on patterns. Mixing patterns with solid colors can create a stunning effect, but too many conflicting patterns can lead to visual chaos.
At Rugs A Million, we encourage you to have fun and let your creativity shine. Don't be afraid to step outside the lines and experiment with colors, patterns, and textures to create a vibrant and inviting living space that truly reflects your personality.
