Color RulesWhether it’s outdoors or indoors, it’s important to pick the colors that best suit their surroundings as well as helping to create the kind of environment you’re hoping to achieve. Here are a few tips on which colors to pick for the kind of style and personality you want to portray: Earthy greens, browns, and grays are on trend for contemporary traditionalists; by that, we mean people who like to keep pace with modern ideas while also maintaining the aesthetic of the world around them. These colors are style orientated and are more suited to the homeowner who is going for style and glamour before coziness. The Urban Jungle is a big trend this year, and these colors are perfect for this style. These botanical and earthy colors are perfectly suited to both indoor and outdoor furnishings, so pick up some decorative throw pillows for anything from your patio chair to your living room rocking chair. The more quirky, creative types should check out monochrome blues, reds, and greens. These colors grab your attention and create a more energetic environment. While not as suitable for outdoor settings, these colors make indoor settings feel warm and inviting. However, if you do want to take these colors outside, be sure to match them with vibrant styles and bright colors.

The energy in these warmer colors is more suited to artistic types and matches well with vibrant paintings or kitsch décor. If you like to keep your home looking funky but, at the same time, tidy and well put together, then this kind of style is for you. Cushions in these colors would be more suited to lighter backgrounds, being surrounded by lighter colors will make your pillows pop. Light blues, pinks, and yellows are perfect for people who just want a comfortable space to relax and unwind. These paler colors offer more of a subtle pop and are not quite as distracting as the vibrancy in their darker versions. These lighter colors are also perfect for outdoor settings, as they don’t get mixed up in their surroundings, and their simple tones easily blend into outdoor furnishings. These paler colors are a safe bet for those who want to maintain a safe middle ground between the funky creative and the serious chic. Last, if you’re the kind of person who just wants somewhere to go home to and lift your feet up, maybe some paler, more simple colors would be better suited to you. Go for pastel blues, pinks, and yellows. Colors that are less distracting often allow you to get a little more comfortable.
