Interior Decorating Ideas : How to Choose a Color Scheme for a Room


Hi, I’m Ann Myrick and today I’m going to
show you how to chose a color scheme. What you first want to do is whatever room you’re
picking your color scheme in, is there anything that’s going to go in that room? If there
is then you need to pick a color scheme according to whatever you have in that room. Lets say
you already have an oriental rug that is going to go in a room. So as you start thinking
of your color scheme you want to take into consideration the colors that are in that
oriental rug. If you don’t, if you’re wide open and you don’t have anything, you’re starting
from scratch then you can really. Ways to get there, to know what you want to do would
be to just think about colors that you love, that make you feel good. You might want to
go and look at magazines and just look at a lot of different colors from magazines.
One thing you want to keep in mind is once you look at a color you always want to bring
it home and put the colors in the room. This is, I’m just showing you an example of kind
of a yellow-green swatch. And I’ve been kind of working with this. But what happens with
certain colors is when it comes into house and it works off the windows, and the lighting,
and the furniture that’s in the room, a lot of times the colors will change. Colors will
change depending on the way the light bounces off of it. So you always want to, whatever
you start thinking you’re going to do, you always want to bring the colors, pick out
the colors in swatches, put them on your wall and leave them on for about twenty-four to
forty-eight hours just to see what the color does. Because sometimes the color, you’ll
bring it in and it won’t work at all. You’ll think you’re picking out a yellow but you’re
picking out a green So you just want to watch that. Also with color schemes I will always
say don’t overdo the color scheme. I have been in so many houses where they pick a color
scheme and the candles, everything is in that color scheme and that’s not what you want
to do with a color scheme. You want to use two or three colors but then you also want
to interject some colors that would be an element of surprise, so your eye isn’t getting
stale. This is Ann Myrick and that is how you pick out a color scheme.
