Learn how to create a beautiful space by using color in your home to draw attention to the areas and things you love. Read on to see how the same painting can transform several unique rooms and create different atmospheres.
Here in a neutral room, this brightly colored painting (Come Splash in the Fountain) comes to life. The colors take on a jewel like quality against the neutral grey.
Also, you don’t need to have items that match the colors in the painting exactly to have a great result. Because the red in the pillow is an orange-y red it works beautifully with the more subdued red-orange of the building in the painting.
Neutrals are great for creating a feel for a room and not being overwhelming. Greys, creams, whites, and browns are the most common neutrals, but a trip down the paint aisle at home depot will tell you that the world of neutrals is way more than just four colors.
Let’s look at some more, just for fun.
And let’s stay with the same painting.
Here is a beige room, the blues take a different feel – more relaxed and calm. They are complimenting the blues in the couch already in the room.
In this white room, the art really draws the eye, creating a contemporary, clean look.
In another white room, the green in the painting ties in with the greens in the room – the other main color in the room’s design. In this setting, the painting contributes to a relaxing vibe, with the blues and oranges creating some energy in the room.
