Colorful Accents Create Extraordinary Spaces
(BPT) - When looking to transform your home, elements such as doors, ceilings and trim are perfect places to add color. These architectural details can create a wow factor with well-placed splashes of color.
"An unexpected pop of color adds interest to a space, helping an otherwise ordinary room become warm and welcoming, or modern and luxurious," says David Bromstad, HGTV star and celebrity interior designer. "Doors, ceilings and trim are my favorite places to introduce bold accents. And if you start with a coordinated palette, it's easy to find an accent color you love."
Bromstad offers the following tips for using color to accent your space.
Welcome guests with statement doors. Refreshing your home, inside or out, can be as easy as a brightly colored door that welcomes visitors. Boost curb appeal by inviting guests into your home with a bold orange or red front door. Inside the home, captivate guests with indulgent, exotic hues on doors.
Rethink the white ceiling. To make a space feel expansive, or for an unexpected touch of luxury, consider a colorful ceiling. A sky-blue porch ceiling draws from nature and helps your outside space to shine. Inside, for an elegant dining room, opt for rich hues such as black or deep gray.
Frame your space in neutrals. White trim offers depth and sophistication to your home. To give your interior a twist of modern luxury, opt for white trim with a hint of gray or taupe. Outside, consider white trim with a touch of blue or green.
"You don't need to paint an entire room or exterior to transform the aesthetic of your home. Refreshing a space, inside or out, can be easily accomplished if you start with unique accents and architectural elements," says Bromstad.
