People assume choosing a home’s colour palette only involves picking paint for the wall; however, it’s a decision that affects every design element in your home. The bathroom tiles, bedroom flooring and even the kitchen appliances and cupboards should all be considerations when determining the final colour scheme in a new custom home.
In a recent custom home, we created a light and airy colour palette that guided all of our design decisions.
|Using the same material in different areas of the home is one way to ensure colour is harmonious. For this client, we used marble in the kitchen, bathroom and living area which tied all the spaces together.
|Choosing the paint colour can complement different textiles and materials used throughout the home. For this client, we chose a neutral grey tone with white trim that allowed for more vibrant accessories to stand out.
|Accent colours can also help with a cohesive design. In the kitchen, stainless steel appliances match the fireplace insert and even finishes such as light fixtures and faucets are steel—creating a sleek look throughout.
|Flooring is extremely important for a unified colour palette. For this build, the same flooring was used in all the living spaces.
|Don’t Forget About the Exterior
A smart design will ensure exterior colours, finishes and even landscaping complement the indoor colour palette. You always want to ensure design continuity between the indoors and outdoors.
