The Importance of a Good Colour Palette

Calgary Home Decor Colour Palette

Choosing a Colour Palette for your Bedroom Furniture, Accessories, and Home Decor

Colour plays an important role in interior decorating: the choice of colour for backdrops and accents plays a large role in setting the atmosphere of a room, as well as emphasizing certain aspects of decor while minimizing others. Along with home decor, backdrop and accent colours can completely transform a room without altering pre-existing architecture or square-footage.

In terms of the mood that colour can evoke, bright or warm colours can provide an energetic setting, while muted or cool hues are more calming. An interior decor expert can help you choose the right hue: there are both warm and cool variants of many colours (for example, a blue based red is cooler than a hot fire-engine red, or a warm yellow-tinged green has more warmth than a green closer to blue). When it comes to paint, finishes (which come in a variety of mattes and sheens) can also affect the way the colour looks on the walls or furniture.

Many sleep experts suggest that for a good night’s sleep, a room should be free of distraction and clutter. Similarly, the decor style of a bedroom should create a feeling of relaxation so that a person can have a restful sleep and wake up energized.

The Backdrop Colour

When choosing a colour for the walls and major furniture pieces, it is always a good idea to pick a neutral colour. Neutral colours are a staple in modern decor and do not require updating every time a decor trend comes and goes. Furthermore, they match a wide variety of hues, which allows you to change your decor accessories seasonally, when the mood strikes, or when you find a decor trend that you love. For example, in bedrooms specifically, the bed is usually one of the most prominent features. If your walls, bed frames, and main furniture pieces are high-quality and easy to pair with any shade, it’s a simple matter to change the look of the room with a items such as new bed frame, duvet, blanket or throw cushions. Neutrals have a second benefit in bedrooms: a large variety of whites, greys, creams, and mocha hues can be tremendously relaxing and calming.

However, if you don’t like neutrals, other colours that work well for bedrooms are blues, greens, purples, and lighter pastel shades of pink and yellow.

When selecting exactly what shade you will need, it is important to take into account the size of the room, as well as the type of home lighting that you use. This doesn’t mean that you can’t paint a small room a deep ocean blue, but if you wish to do so it would be a good idea to talk to an interior decor expert about other ways to open up the space, such as mirrors and carefully placed decor.

The Accent Colour

A classic colour combination in modern decor is the use of neutral backdrops with pops of colour. If you wish to create your bedroom along these lines, it’s a great way to work in brighter colours that you love, such as vivid reds, yellows, oranges, or brighter shades of blues, purples, and greens, without creating an overwhelming look. To create a harmonious look with a palette of bright or contrasting colours, it can be a good idea to look to nature for inspiration. For example, strawberry-red and bright green, or the many warm colours of a sunset.

With a palette narrowed down, it becomes easier to choose which furniture and modern home decor would best suit your room.
