Do not afraid of color, bold statements with color, rich hues. Do not tend to work a lot with muted or tertiary colors, crisp white, crisp black. Crisp vibrant color as an overall statement. At first glance the homes entryway looks like a riot of color, realize actually working with a tight palette. A lot of white, first of all, and then a mix of blue and orange.
Usually gather in these spaces at night, a time when a deep color, such as claret or aubergine, illuminated by candlelight, draws you and your guests to the table. Powder rooms are another, which should be treated as little jewels and departures from the rest. It you think of the way we describe certain emotions, seeing red, feeling blue, green with envy, there is no denying that color and mood are inextricably linked.
You should also consider the placement of textures as you go about designing your room. Putting a smooth texture directly next to a rough one while make the rough object stand out more and seem weightier than if you space them apart. Use distance to determine how subtle of a visual weight you would like to achieve. We have said it before and we will say it again, contrast is essential when essential when it comes to design because it keeps things balanced and also provides visual interest.
Think blue and white is the equivalent of black and white, it is just not as fierce. It is more welcoming to most people. Working within a streamlined color palette not only helps the rooms themselves feel cohesive, but it also helps with the transitions between rooms. When you are in the middle of the foyer and you are able to see all the other rooms throughout, you have the same family of colors repeated but in different ways in each space.
