Living In A World Of Color
Color Evokes Emotion! Start by asking, “how do I want to feel in this space?” Perhaps Bold, Calm, Playful, Sultry. Think about how you will live in the space and how the color story will set the mood.
When starting with a clean slate, I start with paint – eco-friendly paint. To create harmony throughout your home you can choose to design a tonal color palette with various depths – think ombre. You can also achieve flow using a palette that is complimentary but is bold and bright paired with neutrals for balance and cohesion.
To provide a healthy, sustainable home environment choose non-toxic paints otherwise known as zero-VOCs. There are many options on the market to select from, personally one of my favorites is the Aura line from Benjamin Moore. It’s offered in both interior and exterior with various finish options.
Color Combinations I Love…
Benjamin Moore – Electric Orange with Benjamin Moore – Bittersweet Chocolate
Benjamin Moore – Ivory Tower with Benjamin Moore – Smoke
Benjamin Moore – Montpelier with Benjamin Moore – Proposal
All from the Aura line which is People, Pet & Plant Friendly!
From there that’s where further design development folds in with furnishings, fixtures, art, and accessories creating a beautiful home that fits your sensibilities and sustainable style.
