What do I want my home to feel like?
Ask yourself this:
“Do I want a quiet oasis with soothing color palettes?” This can be achieved by layering multiple patterns in fabrics and soft luscious carpets. The soft surfaces not only absorb irritating noise, but also insulate the interior space. What’s more soothing than kicking off your shoes and wiggling your toes in the soft carpet. Or you can achieve the look of cosmopolitan living in suburbia in subtle but effective ways. Silvery gray and mysterious plum are suggestions of colors that speak to the city lifestyle. Taupe, weimaraner gray, and a variety of browns also work well into the city palette.
Rule #1: There Are No Rules. Colors are more adaptable than you might think and they don’t just disappear after a season. Gradually lighter or darker over time, color can give your room the flexibility you need to express the style you love.
Listen To Your Heart. Don’t be afraid of your favorite color. If it makes your feel good—use it on your floor, the largest area.
