How to select color for your room

When we intend to pick the appropriate color for our living dining or even kid’s room, it seems to be challenging to select the best shade for all of us as well as in most of the instances, we are unable to distinguish from where we have to begin. How to maintain the color balance with different segments of the room including movable accessories.


 With this one, I would like to bring out few tips and suggestion based on my idea. We recognize that shade generates the mood that makes an impact in our mind. It includes a specific language and sentiment. Upbeat shades are assured to enhance one's ambiance!


 First, take a brief while curate your color palette. Gather magazine pages, flyers, postcards almost anything with a color combination that scheming you. Get hold of home-related products that grab your eye, for example, fabric material and wallpaper swatches, coloring chips, or even non-home objects which produced by nature. Additionally, you can consider snapshots of kinds of stuff that motivate you. Prepare and then add to your inspiration board as a part of your process. Make a little effort to pick your own color by using certain items such as Caledon green flower vase, a piece of clothes in burnt sienna, cutting of grasses and more. It may be better than paint chips.


Then determine your mood. Figure out exactly what mood you are looking for the room to represent. Different shades, hues, and saturations will generate a certain spirit to your guests. For example, in the case of green is your base of choice, a gentle shade will produce a stress less and fashionable sensation whereas a sea foam shade will deliver the room a relaxed, cottage feels. A dark olive green will permeate a vintage, reserved look; equally, a strikingly attractive apple green that would be sure to wow your guest.


In next, you need to take into consideration regarding the lighten up. To transform a well-being color into one that works well on the wall surface. Take into account regarding the light reflectance value (LRV) of that color you have selected for your room. The higher LRV, produce more illumination that will bounce around the room, accordingly, in the case of lower LRV, the color will soak up light, which will make the room sound moody. It is well known that dark color will certainly make the room smaller therefore, people are typically staying away from the dark color in a small room, but the real fact, it creates the room darker not smaller. To avoid the cave-like feeling, just use the mercury glass and mirror lamp. The room will be appearing fine.

When you are going to sprinkle around the room with three or two colors, try to distribute by maintaining a ratio such as 70/30 or 70/20/10. 70% will go with the lightest color, 20% lighter and rest of 10% will be in bold color. In the case of two colors, it would be 70 for lightest and 30 for a lighter color. To avoid monotony, use various shades of a single color in a large room; consequently, you can still add a bit of texture to produce an appeal.

Fresh flowers are an awesome technique to insert color to any room without a lengthier commitment. Additionally, they help celebrate the season.


Everybody thinks of wall space once they think of color. However, applying color in accessories–art, pillows, rugs–makes a fantastic impact without going insane on the walls. Let me share a suggestion of color balancing between the wall and home accessories. Make an effort to select a theme color of your room. If red is your motif color, follow this image. You can consider photograph or painting on your wall in crimson color to have such type of balance along with other accessories of the room and pull out the luminosity in light background color for room accent. This one my framed photograph named “End of the day”.


In the case of light blue, place a painting or photograph based on blue color. This one my digital painting hanging on the wall, available in framed print on FAA. In the blue, try to use a few touches of white in home accessories that bring a pleasant peacefulness. White brightens whatever it’s with but sometimes it may be insensitive. So, try to use off white instead. It would still look brighter with any such type of color.


Additionally, I’ll provide you a downloadable e-book for free concerning how to hang a painting on your wall. You will have an excellent suggestion of my friend, the owner of Xanadu gallery named Jason; as well as, look at my suggestion regarding how to measure your wall by following the link of art collector's page. 

Neutral colors generate peace, additionally, it reconciles to another color. They even help to get along with bold colors and patterns. Add a colored or attractive shade to a lamp to cheer up a room. It’s a quick change that produces a great impact.
