Fall Color Trends For Your Home

Thursday, November 7th, 2019

The weather outside is cooler, but the inside of your home doesn’t have to be! The latest fall design and color trends are all about earthy tones and bright colors – similar to that of the 80’s or 90’s. These colors can be fun to play around with and will look great in any home! 

Blush and Camel

Nude tones like camel give off a luxurious feel wherever it is put. Blush tones also have a luxurious look, but can soften a space as well. These two colors can be used as accent colors in a room, and goes well with earthy tones like green or grey.

Woods

While wood is not a color, it still brings in natural tones to a home, and there are many stain colors to choose from. The rustic look of wood also creates a feeling of relaxation. An easy way to incorporate this into your home is with your flooring. Hardwood floors instantly add character and warmth to any room, and go with any color.

Red and Yellows

Bright reds bring in the feeling of power and confidence to a space, while yellow brings energy and joy. Since these colors are so intense, it is best to limit them to about 10% of your home’s palette. This can be through simple items such as artwork, fruits in a bowl, statement pillows, etc. 

Plum and Navy

These bold colors can be the perfect pop of color for your home. These dark hues can work well contrasting nudes, blushes, or wood floors. If you’re really interested in incorporating these colors in your home, you can always paint your door or moldings to match.

Fall 2019 is all about warming up your home with deep shades, and incorporating pops of color. Wondering where to start? Your floors are the best place!

Coordinate Cabinetry and Hardwood Flooring

Sunday, May 6th, 2018

You might be considering remodeling your home or are just looking for some ideas. Here are some ways you can coordinate cabinetry with hardwood floors!

Use matching wood and stain

You can always match your cabinetry with your hardwood floors by using the same species, style and stain. In the example below, you can see that other than the appliances, the cabinetry matches the hardwood floors perfectly:

Slightly contrast the cabinetry wood/stain with the hardwood floors

The contrast between the cabinets and hardwood floor can be minor. As you can see in the picture below, the cabinetry is only slightly darker compared to the hardwood floors, but it’s not a big difference and still compliments each other nicely.

You can always opt for a more dramatic difference and either have light colored hardwood floors and dark cabinets, or vice versa, like in the image below.  In this particular photo the cabinetry really pops and stands out!
