A Color Chart: For Use Before You Decorate
As an interior designer, there are many tips I give my clients to aid them in making decisions of all kinds about the planning 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 seeing 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 for 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. Color 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 choices.
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 to 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 or 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.
