TUTORIAL TUESDAYS Creating Winning Color Combinationc

Colors can set a mood, attract attention, or make a statement. You can use color to energize, or to calm a space. Colors affect us in numerous ways, and being able to use them harmoniously can help you create great results! To get results you will always be happy with, just refer to the color wheel. This is the most basic tool for creating color combinations.

Another good way to find fun color combinations is Pinterest, just type in Color Combination in the search bar, and you will have color coming out your ears. 

At the very least, it will give you some inspiration to go create your own combination. 

To apply combinations to your home I would start small. A couple pillows, artwork, table centerpiece. Don't go out and buy all new furniture (unless you really want to). But if your like me, you'll change your mind eventually, and then your stuck with that pea green couch (that was once so cute). I keep the bare bones in my house neutral and classic, then accessorize with fun colors and patterns. Get creative! You can take fabric, attach it to the back of a basic bookcase, and it becomes a whole new piece. It breathes life into any room. Have fun with it! And remember to show me what you come up with.
