One thing clients always ask me is how to create flow throughout their home? They seem to think that furniture, style, colours and wood tone needs to match and I am here to tell you no it does not! This would be boring! Some of the most beautiful home have a blend of wood tones, style, furniture and colours.
One of the easiest ways to create flow throughout your home it to pick a colour pallet and then repeat it throughout in different shades. I like to start with neutral of light walls and then use artwork, accessories like lamps, bowls and books as well as pillows, rugs, throws and window coverings to add colour and create interest with textures, fabrics and patterns.
I came across a beautiful home on one of my favourite blogs House of Turquoise. Erin featured a home from Welden Field and Rowe Custom Homes and it is the perfect example of how to create flow throughout a home.
This home is so beautifully decorated with a colour pallet of creams, peach and soft shades of blues and greens.
From the moment you walk in you can see all the colours. Soft cream walls with blues and greens in the artwork, accessories and pillows.
As you can see when you walk into the living/family room the colours are repeated in the walls, accent pillows, accessories and ottoman.
The curtains draw your eyes outside to all the beautiful shades of green. I am a huge fan of medium colour flooring as it grounds the rooms and will never go out of style.
As you can see down the hallway on the right the blues are repeated in the bedrooms.
Next your eyes move to the open kitchen and eating nook.
I love the custom roman shades that match with the pillows and the runner. Some may find this too matchy matchy but it works well here because the pattern and colours are soft and grounded by a cream background.
I am loving that backsplash tile!
Next your eyes get drawn into the formal dining room where the blues and greens are repeated.
The bolder wall colours look great with the wainscotting so it’s not too much colour and is repeated in the custom drapes. The best way to get a designer looks is to choose the fabrics first then the paint colour. Gorgeous and so well coordinated.
Did you notice all the different wood tones? This dining room is a perfect example of how to mix and match wood tones and use area carpets to pull a room together.
