Interior Color Styling 2014

In interior design as in art, a hue rarely exists in isolation. A home’s walls and doors do not constitute finality. A beautiful home is designed and constructed with an intentional interior flow. And so it follows that there is an art in developing a color palette that sequences color from one room to another. The process begins at the entry and continues either through corridors that form the arteries of a home or expands into a single grand and open living space. Creating a seamless transition from one room to the next requires careful selection of colors.

In order to maintain a cohesive interior design scheme, rooms that radiate from common areas – whether off a hallway or from a centralized space - should be considered part of the same design/color plan.

This doesn’t mean that rooms must have the same colors or different shades of one. Colors can change from room to room provided that there is something in each space that relates to each and every room in the home. In addition to color choice, this can also be achieved with furnishings, textiles, and accessories. It can also be accomplished by using accent colors that creatively relate to one another.

For example, this entry foyer is painted a dark gray laced with a good deal of brown. A lighter shade continues into the living room. Around the corner, the kitchen is painted a medium metallic gray while the guest room paint is textured to look and feel like luxurious gray suede.

Black accents in the living room - rug, coromandel screen, and accessories - reappear in the master bedroom whose walls are a sorbet yellow while the furnishings are shades of ivory (of the brown family) which brings us full circle.
