Finding the perfect colour scheme for your bedroom or kitchen can be a daunting and challenging task to make – especially if there’s more than one of you to make the decision. It can lead to heated debates, a diminished bank account and a few too many do-overs.
However, that’s not to say that redecorating or changing a few things in the kitchen or bedroom isn’t fun – many people have fond memories (and scars) of renovating a kitchen or trying to fit a dining table through a doorway that’s 4 sizes too small.
A coffee colour palette is an incredibly versatile one, with so many schemes that go together. Whether you want a creamier bedroom with a few deep browns, or a latte brown with some lighter milkier shades, this palette is sure make any room look beautiful. Smaller rooms will benefit from buttery lighter browns, and a statement espresso or mocha brown can look phenomenal in a larger room.
Give Furniture a Frothy Finish
Choosing warm light-brown furniture such as cappuccino colour kitchen cupboard doors or bedroom doors will give the room an amiable and neutral atmosphere – which is perfect for the cold winter months! What’s even better is that coffee coloured furniture is available in many materials, easy to get hold of and go with many other colours – such as greens and reds.
Stick to the Rule of Three
Don’t be afraid to experiment with colours. Experimenting can lead to some awesome findings. However, it’s always advisable to stick to the rule of three. Pick your main hue and then two complementary colours. Your colours should never fight for attention, but enhance everything about the room (unless the contrast is what you want).
So you’ve fallen in love with that deep mocha red or black espresso, but you’re not sure if you can make it work in your bedroom or kitchen. Try out any bold browns with a few accessories, such as tea towels, mugs, cushions and door handles. This way, you can see if you prefer the deep browns as the main colour in your scheme, or the accent colour.
