3 SIMPLE COLOUR SCHEMES FOR YOUR ROOM – Feeling like your room just isn’t packing the decorating punch? Kind of bland, sort of okay but could be better?
Maybe your room’s colour scheme just isn’t working for you anymore.
Rather than throwing out everything and starting from scratch you could add new life to your room just by creating a colour plan and working diligently to be consistent.
And we’re not talking about just painting the walls.
This is about creating a colour palette that you love and then using those colours primarily throughout your space. Wall colour, furniture, accessories and artwork.
This will create a flow that makes the room look harmonious and pulled together. We’ve created 3 simple colour schemes for your room.
3 SIMPLE COLOUR SCHEMES YOU CAN CREATE
1/ UPDATED BEACH
This look is a fresher twist on the beachy look we’ve been seeing for a while. Instead of lighter blues and barely-there cream this look has a bit more punch. Deepen the blue and go for a sandy colour instead of cream.
This colour palette really gets modern when you add a bit of green. You can add more than one shade of green for an even more finished look. And don’t forget the white. It adds a crispness to it all.
2/ ROYAL LIVING
This colour palette is timeless. Just like a navy blazer, white blouse and gold earrings. If you love it just like that, leave it. If you want to make it a bit more contemporary add a hot colour like fuschia, orange, yellow or red.
Be careful not to go overboard with the hot colour or you’ll change it and end up with a more dated version of this look.
3/ PROUD PEACOCK
If you’re one of those people that hates all the gray walls and blush accessories that are so popular right now, this one might be your pick.
Orange pairs beautifully with peacock blue. It can be masculine and serious if you want to add caramel and black.
If you love the combo but want to keep it a bit lighter, play around the with the shades of these 2 colours. Add in coral, peach, light blue and turquoise. This will maintain the look but be a softer version.
So what’s next? Time to create an inspiration board that you can use as a visual reminder of where you’re going with the room plan.
