March 11, 2019

You are a color away from living in the best apartment in Little Rock. Here are some tips on finding this color. .



Rooms need to match but not match match.

You want the theme in your home to flow from room to room, you don’t want each room to match exactly. This is a great time to pull out your color wheel. You’ve chosen a blue for your kitchen. A blue two shades away from this blue is perfect for the next room over. It will compliment the kitchen, but give you a whole new color to work with.

What is the largest or most important room in your house? That room should have the starter-scheme. Every other room can take one color, choose it’s compliment two shades darker or lighter, and build its color scheme on that.

First, you need to decide what color the largest/most important room in your house will be.

Get color inspiration from your own style.

Choose paint colors based on the home decor you plan on using in your apartment. Paint color is easy to adjust. Home decor is often expensive or one-of-a-kind.

When you walk in your apartment, what is the largest pattern? Is it the rug? The tapestry? Armchair? Whichever piece of decor stands out largest to you should be the basis of your color scheme.

Starting from scratch? Many apartment owners are moving in with little to no furniture. No worries! You have so much fun ahead of you. Get color inspiration from your closet. Which items of clothing do you love to wear? What colors do you see the most?

Test the color.

If you are confident in your color choices and ready to hit the walls with a roller, go for it! If you’d like some more thought, you should do some testing.

Now that you have narrowed down your color contestants, you need to know what they look like in real life. Use testers on your wall to see how they look throughout the day — you’d be surprised how much the natural light in a room can change color. Paint something flat you can carry around, like a canvas. Take it around to your furniture to make sure the color compliments.

As always. Have fun!
