Augusta Home Builder Shares Tips for Adding a Bold Pop of Color
Are you looking for design ideas for your new home in Augusta? If you’ve spent time in home décor stores, browsing home décor magazines or searching on Pinterest, you’ve probably noticed that one of the key design trends for 2014 is the use of bold colors. From adding a few accent pillows to a dramatic accent wall, there are an abundance of ways to incorporate this trend into your home. Here are a few ideas on how to implement the trend in your home without having to change up your entire design scheme:
- Accent: Pantone’s Color of the Year for 2014 is Radiant Orchid, a bright, cheerful shade of purple. The perfect way to add this color into your home is through accessories or accent pieces. For instance, a simple bar stool in orchid as the accent color in a home office makes a unique statement. Other accessories, such as rugs and throws, in varying shades of orchid will liven up a room, especially when paired with other bright colors, such as teal, turquoise and even light yellows. Other coordinating color options include olive and deeper hunter greens. The color also livens up neutrals, like beige, gray and taupe.
- Black Walls: As dramatic as it sounds, painting one wall in your kitchen midnight black creates a dark, moody space that can be the perfect backdrop to the metallic accessories that are popular right now. Bedrooms are another place where a black wall can work well. To balance the dark wall, add white curtains to allow the maximum amount of light in the room or add a glossy, white, floor-to-ceiling armoire that reflects light.
- Splash of Blue: If you’ve decided to add a black wall in a room in your home, adding blue accessories can help to lighten the mood. Choosing rugs or throw pillows in rich, saturated colors like navy and indigo or vibrant shades in peacock blue and cobalt can add a fun pop of color.
- Dark Drapes: Another option to add a dramatic touch to your home is to use black, dark brown or navy draperies in a dining room. When selected to match the color palette of a dining table, you will make a bold but unified statement.
