Color Ideas to Inspire Your Next Home Makeover

The colors you choose for your home can really set the tone for the entire design and the finished space, whether you go for a bright jewel-box feel, a sultry, dramatic ambiance, or a light and serene retreat.

When choosing your color scheme, keep the style of your space in mind. Is your home sleek and modern with clean lines, or is it traditional with more ornate features? Modern spaces pair well with specific colors — think pretty pastels, crisp whites, and bolder, vibrant hues. Traditional spaces look great paired with nearly any color! It’s up to you whether you want to make a statement or not. (Take note that around here, we love making statements — especially with color.)

Other shades of green can bring an energetic feel to a space, but a blue-green shade such as teal evokes a sense of calmness and sophistication. Perfect for a home office!
