From the runway to the hallway, colorblocking is making a splash in a big way. It’s stylish, modern and fashion-forward. It’s also a super fun way to play with colors. You can try out some classic color combinations or spruce things up with some unique pairs. It’s bold and can fit a room that needs a more masculine vibe or one that needs a touch of girl power. The “blocks” don’t have to be perfectly geometric or match at all, but there does need to be a fair share of solid patches of color scattered about the room. Let us inspire you with some funky, sleek, unique rooms to create and mimic for yourself.
First things first, select the color scheme. Will you mix and match bold and bright colors? Or will you keep it contemporary and chic with black and white with a dash of red? You can also take the serene route and use colors that mesh well together and have a more contemplative feel, for example, grey and blue hues.
Make sure you have some type of base to work with though and make you color choices pop. Neutral colors like beige, tan and even light grey work well to blend and enhance other colors. If you’re color blocking on the wall, keep the bed neutral so you can create a focal point. Or color block the accessories and furniture of your room and keep your walls a nice and clean for make everything look that much more, “WOW!”
Don’t be scared to get creative either. Paint your own shapes on the wall using your color choices. Masking tape will become your new best friend. Don’t be scared to highlight some art that’s a bit out-of-the-box and boldly colorful. And don’t be afraid to make your bed a vibrant jumble of solid colors.
It’s easy to forget certain details when you’re decorating. Curtains, colors of the side tables and even picture frames don’t get seemed to get thought about a midst the hustle and bustle of the start to finish makeover. If you can find color blocked curtains to help finish off your theme that’s great, but use them to top off the look of the entire room. Use little pieces in your chosen colors to create an enveloping color coded vibe. And to really get that engineered, geometric look … find pieces with those same lines. Square furniture pieces and ottomans. Sharp cut vases and shelving. Pay attention to the shapes throughout the entire space.
