Nature offers a bounty of inspiring color combinations for home décor
May 16 2011
The colors in nature can provide a host of options for home decorating, whether they come from the greens and browns of a forest or the blues and sand tones from the seashore.
Colors from nature allow homeowners many options in decorating.
Homeowners should consider all the colors they encounter on a daily basis that have a connection to the outdoors. The ocean can be blue, green or turquoise, while mountains and cliffs are often different shades of gray. Desert colors range from oranges and reds to russet browns.
Coupled with their personal preferences, homeowners who consider nature when making their color selections can come up with combinations which make them feel comfortable.
"When all else fails, look to nature," advises Freshome.com "Color is a powerful tool that can be used to inspire emotions, create space illusions or simply set the mood and atmosphere for any particular room."
Once a nature-inspired color scheme is chosen, it can be refined by adding complementary colors and fabrics for soft furnishings such as window treatments. Roman shades in a wide range of fabrics coordinate well with any décor. Depending on the fabric chosen, they may add a textural quality that is an ideal companion to natural colors.
