Create a Color Story

In the most thoughtfully designed homes, each room should feel connected to the next. Think of how color will flow and transition throughout the space. Having continuity prevents a house from feeling too much like a rainbow, with every corner a different hue. Some areas are conducive to full-on color, while others call for a more understated moment to strike the right balance. Spreading around color and contrast allows the eye to enjoy bold punctuation on the walls in one room, then on the floor in the next, and maybe even on the ceiling or inside of a closet in another. Suddenly, the color story makes sense.
