LUXBOOK | How To Shop The Look | Color Edition

Easily one of the most deliberated design decisions when it comes to interior design is settling on the color palettes. This week we take look at how color is utilized within three diverse rooms.

A Touch of The Bohemian

 CHELSEA HIGH RISE BY DREW MCGUKIN INTERIORS - Color LUXBOOK Chelsea High Rise by Drew McGukin Interiors

When it comes to choosing a color palette for a home, many people stick to softer, neutral colors. It’s a low-risk choice for space you’ll be living in every day, or potentially intending to resell at a later date. However, there’s no doubt that the risk taken by selecting bolder colors can undoubtedly pay off. In this Chelsea Apartment, Drew McGukin Interiors creates a feature wall enlivened by hits of vibrant yellow. The unique thing about this wall is the way the color is applied in swatches, creating a painterly effect with a definite air of the avant-garde. Shades of beige and tans provide a canvas for the tie-dyed cushions to pop (a fail-safe, low commitment way to bring color into a home). The combination of bursts of color juxtaposed with neutral colors and a sprinkling of natural textures brings just the right amount of bohemian into this inner-city apartment.

The Gradient Effect

When electing to make a focal point of a particular hue, consider including tonal shades for a softer and more sophisticated look. In this guest bedroom, NBB Design utilizes a rich apricot and a softer pastel version to create a chic yet visually assertive space. Furnishings such as the elegant armchair, lighting fixture, and feature artwork amplify a sense of luxury.

Just Add Metallics

While a neutral color palette is undoubtedly a safer option, there’s always the risk of it appearing a little dull. HOM. Interiors steer clear of that potentiality by layering dynamic textures and shapes and with the inclusion of metallics. Metallics are an excellent way to add luxury to a neutral themed space. Taking into account other design principles such as balance and contrast to ensure the room avoids becoming lackluster.
