Flaneur recognizes how special color is – we’ve spent endless hours discovering the various shades, saturations and tones to create colorful bedding. Knowing that for the past decade, Nordic minimalism and white monochromatic design have left people wondering what the best way is to add color into their homes. Your home should be as warm and vibrant as possible, so we have culled together some top tips from designers on just how to add color into your home.  

Color is wonderful and powerful. It can be soothing and relaxing or energetic and adventurous. It can be anything that you like. For instance, as Interior Designer Miles Redd told us, “Colors and its limitless possibilities are an endlessly satisfying past time.”

So – it’s time to pick a color. Any color.

If you’ve got lots of colors and patterns in the space – fret not. Above all, just choose colors that you like from the pattern and let it accent the room.

Designer Mark McCauley – author of “Color Your Home Beautiful” – has a 3/3 vertical rule in decorating any room that is based on nature. In short, start from dark at the bottom (ground) to light at the top (ceiling).

Blue and green: (in general) are relaxing and restful, making these colors ideal for a bedroom. Designer Brian Paquette suggests using green and natural tones, such as Myrtle (Baghdad) as it brings greenery indoors.

Colors to Try

Get inspired by your wardrobe. Designer Kendall Wilkinson suggests that people tend to buy clothes in colors they like to wear and look good in.

Colors to Try

Try silvers and grays. Gray has recently been on-trend – Miles Redd suggests mixing it up with silver, that pairs with light blue as they can be “flattering and chic.”

Colors to Try

Contrast warm and cool – designer Brian Ditmar suggests that neutrals will pair beautifully with cool gray and warm honey-colors. Bonus tip – know the difference between warm and cool. For instance, warm colors – reds and yellows – can make a room feel cozy or high-energy. However, cool colors – blues and greens – create a sense of calmness and go well together.

Colors to Try

a beautiful bedroom in purple - wall, door, nightstand, headboard, and bedding.

Try monochromatic in your favorite color that isn’t white. You can often balance the color through the contrast of the ceiling and floor.

Colors to Try

Stay true to yourself and decorate in your own aesthetic. As a result, colors that make you feel happy and are drawn to, will be appreciated by others. Even if it isn’t their own style. This shows that any color can work as long as it represents you.  

Go historical. If you study color schemes from the past – such as French Rococo or Victorian – you can build on tried and true color schemes. Shop our Color Houses for influence.
