The colors of your walls and throughout your home can make a huge impact on the way your home feels. Do you have a relaxed and laid back home with neutral colors and soft textures? Do you have a home that is filled with exciting bright colors and bold patterns? Do you have a trendy home that makes use of all of the hot shades and themes? Here are a few tips from Luxury Lake Home to help you choose the perfect color scheme for your new luxury home at the Lake of the Ozarks!

First Things First

After you have figured out the style of interior that you would like to pursue in your home and how much you want to spend, it’s time to start choosing colors. You can start by creating a “mood board” of the rooms and homes that you like, which can help you narrow down exactly what speaks to you. You can utilize tools like Pinterest or Houzz to keep all of your favorite designs and styles in one place. Are there certain color palettes that appear over and over? This can be a sure sign of what colors you need to work with in your home!

Find the Largest Pattern

Whether you have a large patterned rug or piece of upholstery, you can take colors from this large beautiful piece and replicate them through your home. When choosing the wall color, you can look to the whites and beiges in the pattern to show you which direction to go.

Dark to Light

If you are looking for a stereotypical way to decorate your space, you can use a “template” that doesn’t inolved a lot of risk. Use darker colors on the floor, medium colors on the walls, and light colors on the ceiling. This style replicates what happens in nature, which is probably why it feels so comforting.

Try the Color Wheel

If you want to get scientific about it, there is a way to use the color wheel to help you create a color scheme for your home. Analogous color schemes are colors that are next to each other on the color wheel like blue and green. They are considered more casual and relaxing colors, and they work great in informal or private spaces.

Black is Back

There are some stylists who suggest that you add a bit of black to every room in your home. Black can clarify the rest of your room’s colors, even just a black lampshade or vase. If you want it to be more dramatic, you can paint your kitchen’s base cabinets in a bold black shade.

Gotta Go With Gray

Gray is still a trendy neutral that is loved by so many. Gray has a bit of a chameleon-like quality, and it can be both warm or cool depending on what colors you are pairing with it.

Making Your House a Home

Whether you’ve just closed on your luxury home, or you have owned it for a few years and it just needs an updated look, 2020 is the year to make your home spectacular. As you wait for spring to bloom, you can make the time pass by redesigning your luxury lake home, and before you know it, it will be here! If you don't own a luxury home at the Lake of the Ozarks, it’s not to late to start your search! Let the team at Luxury Lake Home help you find the home of your dreams in time for an amazing summer vacation.
