Get Creative With Color | Some Inspiration From Other Customers
Through the years, Paul and I have seen the rise and fall of many popular interior design trends. The rule used to be that all wood tones in the home needed to match, and all design choices had to be made based on the same trend.
A home used to be “traditional with golden oak” or “mid-century modern with mahogany” or “arts and crafts with quarter sawn oak” or “shaker with cherry”.
Lately though, we’ve noticed that customers aren’t re-doing their whole dining room or kitchen in the same wood, or even the same interior design style.
People Are More Eclectic
Some customers have staple pieces in their home that have sentimental meaning. They want to keep them, and design their new furniture to coordinate. Others have open concept designs, and want a table set that will tie everything together.
For many of our customers it is more about complementing what they have, then it is about getting an exact match. They want what they like, just so it doesn’t “clash.” That has really opened the door for us to get more creative.
Here are some photos to help inspire customers to get creative with wood types, color combinations, and color placements.
