Lemme start off by saying I love your personality and your style. I’ve been watching your interior decor videos for a while now. I got married this year and we are moving into our new apartment soon. It is a one bedroom apartment with open kitchen and living room. I really wanted some help choosing the right colors for our bedroom and living room. I want to mix and match some colors as you do in videos. Should I go for a light or dark color ? what combination would you suggest for a chic looking room? Also, should the bedroom and living room look similar? I do not want it to be overly colorful. I like a classic , elegant looking room. Please help me with the colors and give me some home decor shopping tips.
First of all, congrats on your wedding and new place! That is all so exciting!!
I think when you’re trying to decide what color or colors you want your space to be, there are a few things to consider: what colors are already present in the furniture or decor you have? Are you able to paint the walls? What kind of a mood are you trying to convey with the room?
While all of these factor in to your final decision, I can give you some insight about light rooms vs. dark ones!
When we designed Andrea’s bedroom for OMG We’re Coming Over, the color scheme was all whites, creams, and metallics. This brought a lot of lightness and calm into the space, while still giving it glamour and sophistication. It let the room be customizable, in case Andrea wanted to bring accent colors in.
On the other hand, when we designed Katie and Tom’s living room, we chose to have an accent wall, and some ceiling-to-floor curtains, in a deep green. This brought drama and depth to the room, and definitely anchored bolder choices in graphic art and dark colored furniture and decor.
