Sometimes a single great pice of furniture or home accent can capture a homeowner’s imagination, thus inspiring the color theme or palette for an entire room, or ten the whole house. Spacio furniture store’s designers share that how what you love, maybe a single chair, favorite rug, favorite fabric, flower vase or a painting can beautifully determine the harmonious hues surrounding it.
In this living room below, the sofa’s silk pillows determined the soothing palette. The walls were painted by the home maker with a soft mint green, while the the pops of pastels appear in the window panels, ottomans and the accent chair.
Have you ever wondered how your billiard table can make a difference to the billiards room? The classic burgundy of a pool table’s felt has been the source of this billiard room (pic below). Fiery reds appear in the grasscloth wall covering, club chairs and the geometric folding screen. The round mirror above the mantel (fire place) takes its “cue” form the billiard balls.
The colorful and luxurious floral fabric on the accent chairs inspired with the theme of this home (pic below). The co-ordinated cushions sitting on the sofa echoes the floral fabric’s soaring note. Infact, the whole designing of this room started with the fabric. The weave of the fabric is fancy, but the coloration makes this a fun filled living room.
This is a beautiful example how the accents and the fabric color sets the pace of design inspiration. The proud owner of those blue & white china decorations with a matching and coordinated fabric on the chairs and a stark rug is the most strong element visible in this room. “The design of this house really evolved around a classic look,” says product designer Navin Kanodia.
The strongest hues from the homeowner’s art collection has been pulled to punctuate the living space in bright corals and tangerines (pic below).
The mellow golds and browns from the Parisian chairs continue into the dining room. Window panels are a cooler shade of cream to balance out the rich Fabricut fabric on the chairs.
For a less obvious neutral palette, Designer Navin Kanodia suggests the use of a “dry beach” concept. Propelled by the water, sand, driftwood on the beaches, the sailboats with their canvas sails, the use of this color palette will surely give a calm look to a living room.
