At Perfect Fit Window Fashions serving Naples, Florida, many of our customers express trepidation about adding color to their space. Typically, they’re concerned about “not doing it right.” But we’ve got some suggestions for ways to think about color that might make it more manageable. Or at least less daunting. Read on to learn more!
Thinking About Color
Nothing sets the tone of a room more powerfully than color. While choosing colors is greatly influenced by your personal preference, how you use color matters just as much. Here are some ways to think about it:
- Don’t be afraid to go bold. Put a bright and/or bold color or pattern on one main surface area, like a primary focal point in the space, such as a standout wall or your kitchen backsplash. Use complementary colors throughout the room, such as in furniture, décor, and window fashions—custom drapes from the Hunter Douglas Design Studio™ can help you land on just the right color.
- Saturation plays. If you really like to go intense, you can truly saturate your space with color to create a lasting impression in your room. Be sure to choose your highly saturated color carefully and always keep it balanced.
- Neutral doesn’t have to mean boring. Neutral color palettes are timeless and classic. Plus they bring a certain serenity to the space. You can choose from warm neutrals like ivory tones or go with rich chocolate hues. Window fashions like Duette® Cellular Shades are offered in numerous neutral colors to enhance a room.
- Think of texture like a color. Wood, stone, slate, and woven materials bring depth to a room and can complement a color palette or enhance it. You can add these textures in décor, through furnishings like end tables, and with your window treatments. Provenance® Woven Wood Shades are created from woods, reeds, grasses, and bamboo and are available in over 80 material and color options.
- Create compromise. Want more color than traditional neutrals but less pop than bold hues? Think about “pseudo neutrals” like blue-gray or olive tones. Silver tints, smoky hues, and gray bases and patterns can create a beautiful aesthetic.
- Don’t forget the accessories. You can build an entire color scene around a piece of furniture or art. Use custom upholstery to plus-up an old sofa or use your window fashions as the focal point—with the Fabric by the Yard™ program from Hunter Douglas, many window treatment fabrics are available for purchase separately, so you can create throw pillows, valences, or other finishing touches that will perfectly match your window.
