If you happened to have missed it on Wednesday, I shared a new feature on the blog called “Room Revamp of the Month”. This month, I am updating my master bedroom and today I’m trying to make a decision on the new color palette for this space. You can also click on the image to follow the link to more information about a paint color or the designer of the space.
I can find something that resonates with me in every design style and see the possibilities with almost any fabulous paint color. When it comes to choosing colors, the only thing that really works for me is to focus more on what my head is asking me and a little less on what my heart is telling me. The funny thing is, when I think about paint colors in a more practical day-to-day and ask myself a few questions, I can element about 2/3rds of the choices.
I don’t want to make a wrong decision and be stuck with a bad color in my little cocoon. In my kitchen, living room and entry way, it will be harder for me to determine what I’m looking for but in my cocoon/bedroom, it’s easy, I want to feel elegantly calm.
Narrowing down that color palette is a lot easier for me when I look back through my favorite images that I have pinned on Pinterest and through magazine pages that I have saved over the years. Sometimes we don’t realize that the images that we have pinned or saved over the years can be our greatest resource in determining what we are drawn too and what we like.
You may not realize it but most interior designer’s are happy to simply help you through the process of choosing a color palette for a space. There are so many resources online for finding interior designers but my two favorite places are Decor Pad and Houzz.
