Did you know that the paint colors you choose for your new home in Frisco, TX say a lot about your personality? Most people have a preference for certain colors – whether it’s yellows, blues or browns. But not everyone in the same household may agree on a color scheme. Here is a rundown on the meaning behind your favorite colors, and tips for creating looks that will please everyone in your family.
Sunshine Shades – If you’re a fan of warm colors like yellow, orange, (and close cousins peach and pink), you probably have a cheerful, friendly personality that matches the feeling these shades add to any room. Some people find these shades too bright, however, so you can cool things down by mixing in some cool blue gray or green furnishings. Another option is to use a less saturated yellow or orange shade.
Cool Hues – Studies have shown that people tend to associate pale to medium blues, lavenders and greens with the sea, sky or open fields – elements we typically perceive as being calm and soothing. If these cool shades are appealing, it’s probably because you want to create a peaceful oasis in your new Frisco, TX home. Sometimes these watery shades can create a chily feeling in a room. To counteract that, balance these colors with hints of yellow, orange or brown in your furniture and accessories.
All that Glitters – Jewel tones such as ruby, emerald, sapphire, amethyst and topaz instantly lend a glamorous feel to any room. People who choose these colors typically thrive on stimulation, and are outgoing and creative. These concentrated shades excel at minimizing flaws, will create intimacy in a large space, and play up coziness in a small area. Jewel tones can overwhelm a room, though, so it’s a good idea to pair them with neutrals or colors that have a similar intensity.
Back to Basics – Neutral shades, such as gray, brown, beige and ivory project a feeling of permanence and a crisp, classic look. Fans of these colors are usually even-keeled and practical. You may also understand a trade secret that earth-toned walls allow you to use more colors in your furnishings and accessories. But if you’re reluctant to add a pop of color to your neutral base, you can still make the room more interesting by paring light and dark neutral tones and plenty of texture.
