in detail: design color plans

July 16, 2009

“There are painters who transform the sun into a yellow spot, but there are others who, thanks to their art and intelligence, transform a yellow spot into the sun.”  – Pablo Picasso

Color is a fantastic way to make a change on the interior and exterior of your house. When you work with hauthaus designers on a project, we  pull together a color plan for your project based on your design concept.

It is important to know what feel you are going for, if you prefer warm tones vs cool tones, what kinds of activities the room will be used for, if you want a calming space or energetic space, etc… It is also very important to take into consideration which type of light is coming into the space… northern and southern lights are very different and can play with how the colors look in the room.

color bathrooms

These bathrooms show two different schemes; One is a cool blue and white color scheme that feels very crisp and clean; while the other is warm red with dark wood that feels energetic and inviting.

 

 

dining room

This dining room has a very welcoming feel. The color on the wall is warm and earthy, which plays with the warm creamy tone on the ceiling. The dark wood tones add another layer to the palette.

Art is another way to bring in a splash or two of color. In this front entry, the paint colors and the floor tile is kept pretty neutral, while the orange and blue in the painting in the art niche speak for themselves.
