As an interior designer, there are many tips I give my clients
to aid them in making decisions of all kinds about the
of their homes. I really enjoy walking with people through all
of the various decisions that need to be made. I find that one
of the hardest decisions that people have to make about their
homes is color. Obviously, choosing the right colors for both
the inside and the outside of a home can be an overwhelming
serious of decisions because you do not want to go wrong. I
suggest using a color chart to make the decisions easier.
A color chart is a great thing because it aids people in
colors they like and in being able to distinguish between
certain shades from other shades. For example, if a person is
sure that they want to decorate a particular room or part of
their home in blue but they are not sure what shade of blue is
best, a blue color chart can come in quite handy for choosing
the best shade. A color chart can also be a great tool when
people are trying to find colors that complement each other
rooms or areas of their home.
I am a firm believer that color is one of the most vital
aspects of a home, both on the inside and on the outside.
gives identity and character to homes, and therefore I believe
that it is important that people take their color decisions
seriously. So I always give my clients a variety of color
charts and ask them to take a few days to ponder their
I love helping people find the perfect color combinations that
reflect who they are and help them to accomplish the perfect
atmospheres for their home.
So if you are about to buy or build a home or to re-decorate
your current home, then I suggest you get to a paint shop and
grab some color charts for you to study. Take the time to make
decisions about colors before you move forward with other
decisions about your home. You will be glad that you decided
use a color chart as a tool. It will make all of your choices
much easier. Get the help of an interior designer if you can
talk with friends with a creative eye. Get some opinions from
others, but ultimately you be the one to decide about the
colors you will choose.
