Color Palette for Home Theater

By |2018-12-19T10:19:42+00:00September 24th, 2016|Accent Colors, Case Studies, Home Theaters, Living and Family Rooms, Neutral Palette|

I was called to create a color palette for a home theater and basement that was part of a renovation in a large home. There would be several rooms in the basement, the home theater and entertainment center, a play room, office, exercise room, and large multi-purpose hallway. The client had chosen the floor tiles for the various spaces and the rest was open for suggestion. The tiles were a neutral taupe color. Although we wanted to stick to that neutral color we also wanted to introduce a little pizazz to liven things up. [...]

Long Distance Color Consulting (Part I)

A client called me to help choose colors for a house they were building in the Adirondacks. It was too far to travel and we decided to do what I call, "long distance color consulting". That is we chose colors not on the actual site. It's a challenge because colors change in different lighting and all the things the client chose like tiles, bathroom fixtures, kitchen cabinets, etc. were things I would see only in pictures. She did have a few actual samples of tile for me to see which was very [...]

A Color Palette For A New House (Part II)

By |2018-12-21T09:40:00+00:00January 26th, 2014|Case Studies, Hallways, Light Colors|

In the last blog (Part I) of choosing a color palette for a new house I showed all the colors we used and how the palette was made up of soft and neutral colors that worked together and created a nice harmony. I also talked about the kitchen, living room, dining area, and hall that were all open to each other. We, therefore, chose colors that flowed from room to room in a soft gold color. The entrance hall in the front of the house, the staircase to the upstairs, and the [...]

A Very Versatile Color

I recently was called by a client who wanted to paint her entrance hall, stairway, and upper hall. It was a center hall Colonial house that didn't get much natural light. On either side at the entrance were the living and dining rooms. It had been painted years before in an off white yellowish color that was not very inviting and looked blah. The living room had a subtle wallpaper on the walls in a pale pale green color. The dining room was a deep gold color. The carpeting on the stairs [...]

Moving to a New House, Choosing Colors

A client called needing help choosing colors for a house they were moving into. They were doing some renovation and keeping some furniture from a previous home but basically we had a clean slate to work with. The client wanted a neutral palette. The house was a side hall Colonial with large rooms and a nice flow from one to the other. Once we chose a color we would use it throughout the space with subtle changes here and there. The upstairs bedrooms, however, would have different colors suited to the needs [...]

Hall, Living Room, Dining Room

The three areas were open to one another and we felt that the dining room should be the focal point. The client did lots of entertaining in this room and was going to be getting new furniture. She was excited to try something a little different in that room. But first we needed to choose a color for the entrance hall and living room. Those were the areas with the majority of wall space. The client wanted a warm inviting color. We chose Benjamin Moore 1122 Cocoa Sand […]
