Newly remodeled a home needs POP of color!

asullivan009December 21, 2012
We recently remodeled our home... I mean COMPLETELY remodeled it and are starting from scratch. Everything has a lighter beige/with a hint of grey color and the kitchen cabinets are a darker wood stain.
It all looks gorgeous but it needs a pop of color! Red? Green? Orange? Blue?! How do we decide?!!

Great looking kitchen. Can't tell if there are any backsplash but here is an example with green-ish subway tiles.

You could also use a white subway tile with green glass mosaic accents.

Love the green tiles. Take that into consideration when you [lan the living room area. It looks like the colors for the living area will come primarily f rom the furniture and accessories. I was going to suggest orange because of the color of your cabinets and it would be lovely too.

I do like that green! We have a beige backsplash going in after the holidays.. Had no say in the color because these were free! Yay! But definitely will consider green. I've suggested orange and the hubby turns it down unfortunately.
Thanks for sharing that picture. It helps.

With the beige carpet/walls... How about teal? An accent chair in the accent color (teal or whatever) would be a nice pop for your space. Then accessories and art to complement. You could bring teal into the kitchen with a stove top tea pot..hand towels or teal fruit bowl for the table or counter.

Personally, I think the teal would be lovely! I am doing a remodel presently. My bathroom colors will be similar to your kitchen tile (alabaster porcelain tile) with mosaic trim with black in it. For accent colors, I will bring in some teal and possibly some plum. Your colors are so neutral you can use just about anything. Very nice!

You got furniture?

On option is to stay monochromatic but add contrast with darkness and chroma and texture.

(You could pick a colour out of the fireplace.)

This time, plan EVERYTHING before you spend ANYTHING. In other words, use a mood board.

Whatever color you choose, you'll probably find throw pillows or wall art that incorporates orange with it. A picture of a landscape at sunset will include orange that is not likely to offend your husband. Just don't point it out to him.

(My first thought was 'ditch the husband, keep the orange'. Good thing I didn't actually say that, right?)
