COLOR STORY: CHOOSING A BOLD COLOR SCHEME FOR YOUR HOME

Last summer I worked as a Segment Designer for a new HGTV show set to air in the middle of 2019. On set, the producers kept making reference to "hero colors" when we were talking about the upcoming projects. Design-talk and television-talk are a slightly different. When the producers where talking about "hero colors" they were referring to what my main accent color in the project was going to be. Since then, I always think of my main accent color as my "hero color".

HOW TO CHOOSE A BOLD COLOR SCHEME FOR YOUR HOME TIP 1: SELECT YOUR HERO COLOR

The walls and carpet in this space are a silver grey with a large curved teal accent wall. I chose a golden yellow color as my "hero color" that I sprinkled throughout in the accent pieces.

Geometric patterns, rich velvet and textured throws blend the color scheme perfectly in this space.

It was challenging to find just the right solution for this curved accent wall. My client painted a set of 6 1"x3" boards to balance out the weight of the TV but not to distract from TV viewing.

To keep the room from feeling 'one note' we added various hues of blues to the space like the leather cocktail tables.
