In colour, Interior design, Re-decorating

When balanced strategically throughout your home, colours help tie various elements and craft a cohesive interior theme. Transform your living space into a harmonious and inviting environment by following these steps:

Contemporary interior colour scheme with soft furnishings and earthy elements

Tying in your home’s interior design with neutral colours and accents

Consider Your Fixed Elements

Fixed elements in your home refer to architectural features or built-in fixtures such as trim, flooring, cabinets, and countertops. Their colour undertones can be integrated into your chosen colour scheme for a cohesive look. This provides a consistent colour flow throughout your spaces.

Connect Through Your Base Colour

The base colour can be a neutral or any hue that dominates and holds your colour scheme together. Pick only one to effectively tie all elements and highlight connections among spaces, especially in an open floor plan. Also, use your base colour in varying shades and tones for a more inviting look.

Apply The 60-30-10 Rule

Use 60% of the dominant colour on walls and main furniture pieces to set a visual anchor for coordinating your spaces. Complement it with a secondary colour at 30% on smaller furnishings to provide variety while maintaining harmony. The 10% accent colour can be applied through accessories for pops of personality and visual interest.

Include A Unifying Piece

To tie colours together in your home even more seamlessly, incorporate a unifying element throughout the space. It could be a rug, artwork, or throw pillow set that features at least two colours in your palette. Adding that piece helps emphasise your colour scheme and create a cohesive look.

Factors such as lighting can affect the appearance of colours when combined with other elements in a room. That said, you should test the colours in your space before committing to them. I can help you choose a cohesive palette for your home. Let’s get started by booking a consultation with me today.
