Using Color Opposite to Tame a Colorful Interior Design

Who says that you have to settle on a few colors in a room – why not go all out and create a design that showcases all of your favorite bold colors, like this one that I created on Project Decor…..

 

The key to making a multi-colored interior design work is the usage of color opposites to help tame the colors and focus the design scheme. Select your favorite color from all of the colors in the design and pair it with the color that is opposite of it on the color wheel. In this instance, I selected blue and tangerine, although red and green (used in a way that doesn’t evoke the Holidays) would have also achieved the same goal. Using a duo of color opposites will enable those colors to lead the design and keep the other colors as the supporting cast of a colorful production.

Jackson’s 1st Year Adventures Party

Jackson’s mom and dad wanted a fun way to celebrate their son’s first birthday and highlight all of the places he’s lived in and traveled to during his first year. This baby has been on the go – he started life in Alaska and just a few months ago moved to the DC area. So his mom and I came up with a fun way to show his adventures in both his invitation and his party decor.

For the invitation and birthday announcement – we decided on a birthday passport that captured all of Jackson’s travels and first year activities.

For the party we kept the travel and adventure theme going in the decor. The black lines on the map show the ground that the family has covered during his first year.

The food bar featured food from the four destination spots that his parents want him to visit in the near future – Fiji, Scotland, Italy, and Switzerland. Jackson’s globe cake was created by his mom and was presented in a spinning bowl – totally adorable :)

Traditional Fall Palette Redefined

Or – you could stay in the traditional fall color scheme but punch it up a bit by adding a bright cranberry or an unexpected hint of apple green as in this palette.

It Might be Getting Colder Outside….

But that doesn’t mean it has to be dark and dreary inside! Why not use a colorful accessory or two in one of these hues to perk up a space? Just looking at these colors makes me smile :-)

Halloween May Be Over….

But the colors of the holiday remain. Browns, black, and all shades of orange will always be popular in interiors for the season – even after all of the tricks and treats :-)

Beautiful DIY Lighting Solutions for Fall

Who says you can’t create beautiful lighting as a DIY project? This lighting solution featured on Martha Stewert.com was created with the use of hurricane lamps – autumn toned tissue paper – and frameless candles. For a DIY project – I would say this one is pretty amazing! It can be used as accent lighting for interiors, mood lighting for an outdoor space, or even as a centerpiece for a Fall tablescape. What are your thoughts on this DIY lighting project?
