One of the most exciting things about purchasing a new home is making it your own. You may be eagerly thinking of a color scheme for your window treatments and walls. Picking a trendy hue may be tempting, but you don’t want to regret it when it goes out of style later. Instead, choose a color scheme that reflects your unique personality. Here’s what your chosen color scheme may say about you.
If you’re looking to cover walls in cool blues, you’re likely a peaceful sort who enjoys tranquility. Those who gravitate to the color blue are generally laid back and prefer being home to a night out on the town. Pick this color if you want home to be your personal oasis.
Love the great outdoors? You might if you’re seeking to color the walls in green hues. Spring might be your favorite season, but one thing’s for sure – you’d rather be gardening or reading a book in the sun than anywhere else. Choose a calming sage to set the mood and put others at ease when they walk in your door.
If yellows, oranges, or cheerful reds catch your eye, you likely have the personality for entertaining. Energetic and positive, warm shades instantly light up a room, making it seem more intimate. Try a peach color in a sitting room or kitchen to bring the fun all year long.
Royal purples, rich sapphires, emerald greens, and ruby reds – if you gravitate toward these tones, you probably enjoy the finer things in life. And like the celebrities who flaunt these tones on Oscar night, you’re likely charismatic, creative, and outgoing. Concentrated, rich hues like jewel tones disguise flaws and bring depth to architectural humdrum.
If you love dark greys, browns, or off-whites, you’re dignified and sophisticated without being showy. People who choose neutrals for their walls have refined tastes, and crave order in their lives. You view home as your sanctuary – a place to escape from the rigors of the day. You also crave control, and need to hold the reigns in most situations. Accenting your home is important to you, so having a neutral base lets your accessories shine.
For a look that never goes out of style, opt for a classic grey.
Your home should be a reflection of who you are. Choose your hues wisely, but most of all – have fun!
