Last week we touched on some colors that you may enjoy in your new Parry Custom home. We will continue where we left off with finding the perfect color for your new custom home in Pittsburgh and to help create an inviting space.
Pink: Pink is a great color for a north facing room because unlike white, pink can add warmth to the room. It is a color that recedes from the sight, so it is good for creating an illusion of false space. Unfortunately pink is often thought of as a color for a girl’s rooms. Try introducing pink as a part of a pattern or alongside dark neutrals can take away the feminine quality of the color.
Lavender: Lavender when blended with other tones of purple creates a plush feeling. It looks great in a bedroom or bathroom and can make the space feel special apart from the rest of your Parry home. Combined with light neutrals, lavender can create an atmosphere of relaxation, sophistication and being a sanctuary. In order to ensure that you use this color successfully in your new home, team it up with different tones and add contrasting textures. Linen, cotton and leather all do a great job. Try adding metallic accessories that add a subtle shimmer to the room of your home. In order to perk up a light neutral scheme, try to incorporate a pattern. For instance, you can go for wallpaper or soft furnishing with graphic or tailored designs that work perfectly and add interest to the room.
Black and brown: These colors will create a subtle atmosphere in the rooms of your home. They are great for adding a dramatic feel to the scheme. Dark neutrals have the capability of making the rooms in your Parry home appear smaller, so it is worth keeping that in mind. It is better to think of these colors as accents colors, rather than using them over large areas in the rooms of your home.
Gray: Gray is the hot color this year. It is an excellent selection to create a more modern living space. Try using gray as a feature wall or for furniture. The color gray is a toned down color, but it still adds a lot of interest.
Hopefully this has helped you gain insight on what colors you will choose for the rooms of your new Parry Custom home to make it inviting and a place you love to spend your time!
