Your home is your castle. Obviously, you want it to be an impressive sight, somewhere to relax at the end of the day and also well-presented in the case of any surprise guests. One way to ensure this is to have a cohesive colour scheme throughout your home. Colour is a powerful tool when decorating your home after all.

Tying your home together is a major component of interior design. We understand this here at Rockform. So, with that in mind, how do you create a colour palette that makes sense in your home?

Go with the Flow

Some of the rooms in your home will be connected. This is especially the case in the lower part of your house, which is where many of your guests will gain the full impact of your interior design. A colour scheme which accentuates this flowing design – such as in a connected kitchen and dining room – is often a good way to be able to utilise colour to the fullest.

Modern Kitchen
Transitioning the colour through these open spaces can create connections, but it can also help to separate the space more effectively. By having a darker shade of blue in the dining room and a lighter shade in the kitchen you are creating this duality. They are clearly marked as different spaces, yet sharing the same colour clearly connects them in a way that is pleasing to the eye and easy to do. You simply have to look at the colour wheel in order to work out which of these transitions will work best.

Centralise Your Colour

It is also a good idea to have a central space in your home. From this space, which is often the living room, the rest of the home can be adapted to tie back to where you spend the majority of your time. This does not mean that every room in your home must be a different shade of red because your living room is burgundy. Instead, it can be accessories littered throughout the home in similar shades that help this connection.

Interior Design
You also should not be afraid to have vastly differing colour schemes in the upstairs of your home in comparison to your downstairs. A theme may be your only connection, or you may have a Wild West upstairs and a Japanese inspired downstairs. In terms of colour, you should consider them entirely separate entities. Focus on connecting the floor back to a central room, not on creating a thread throughout your entire house.

Connecting Spaces

Tying your home together is often reliant on the connected spaces. The hallways and stairwells that link all of the different corners of your home together. A neutral colour scheme for these connections, often a white or a beige scheme, will make the move between spaces easier. In a way this neutral connection helps to wash away the first room, allowing the effect of the second to take hold naturally rather than come as a shock. Overall, it helps to create a sense of harmony throughout your home.
