Family space Colours
Q. I would like to update my household room. Can you suggest a colour scheme? maybe a yellow? must I paint the exact same colour on my wainscotting as on my 8” beams on the ceiling? must my walls be a darker or lighter shade than my wainscotting?
A. A rustic, pale yellow like Pratt & Lambert’s Blonde would be a fantastic starting point for your room. keep your wainscotting a warm white, like Ancestral, likewise from Pratt & Lambert. Beams, trim as well as ceiling must be the exact same warm white, however utilize a flat surface for the ceiling instead of eggshell, which you would utilize for the other surfaces.
Replace your wall sconces with simple, clean-lined fixtures in a wrought iron or dark antiqued bronze finish. set up the sconces up so the light is directed to the ceiling. Visually this will add a lot more height to the space as well as will make the illumination a lot more ambient. ideal now you have two “spotlights” directly directed on any individual who sits on the sofa.
If possible, discolor your armoire the exact same rich, dark surface as your coffee table for a remarkable change. It will immediately update the space as well as will look fantastic against the yellow walls as well as cream trim.
Replace your valance with a warm wood or bamboo roman blind. For a charming look, hang curtain panels in a similar linen colour as your sofa on either side of the blind. set up a wrought iron curtain rod that will mirror the colour of the new sconces.
Replace the print over your sofa with a big dark wood framed mirror. This will make the space much brighter as it will show natural light from the window. If you want to keep the print, believe about replacing the frame with a thicker, dark wood frame that will make it a lot more substantial. A narrow bench topped with pillows or two little square ottomans put under the window would add to the comfort of the space as well as would offer additional seating.
