Bold touches of vivid color, maximum impact and lots of energy!

If you’re like me, you find it tough to select paint colors from the chips displayed in the paint store. There are so many of them and so many versions of a single color. Picking the color you will be living with for some time seems risky.
That’s especially true if you want to pick some vivid color for its maximum impact and energy. You’ll want to pass on the pastels or the whitened tones in favor of rich dark tones. You might favor a palette of jewel tones, so you can add touches to different rooms to create a continuity instead of a jumble of contrasting colors.
You don’t have to risk too much of a good thing. If that deep dense color is too much for a small room, you might paint only one wall in a room and add furniture and accents that belong to that family.
Interior design is always a matter of balance. If you want that vivid impact, you make it your new neutral, a new canvas in which you must place things in new arrangements and proportions. You don’t want to decorate in a bold color and expect to return your current odds and ends. Instead, you want to select new and old items what work with that new palette.
You might consider Sherwin Williams’ suggestions for those who like a pop of color. You could go for the Positive Red (SW 6871), Argyle Green (SW 6747), or Oceanside Blue (SW 6496) for
walls and/or ceiling. The selections are boldly vivid and high impact. But, they still have room for other accents in Gold Crest (SW 6670) and Majestic Purple (SW 6545) with woodwork finished in Nebulous White (SW 7063).
Then, you might add a strikingly unique chandelier light fixture like the Isla. Its dramatic black shade presents an exquisite design, 32-inches wide and 40-inches from the ceiling. At one time, it’s a simple, elegant, black shade with a golden surprise. Its gold foil interior holds bronze metal spikes piercing glass balls. The bronze and glass extend the light from bulbs hidden within the shade adding drama and interest to a room rich with enriched color.
The Galjour chandelier takes another direction. It creates a larger impression than the Isla although it is the same size. Polished nickel shines as it supports the architecture. It’s a purely contemporary take on the great chandeliers of the past, but it still carries some of that nostalgia for historic grace and style. The Galjour supports random-sized, rectangular, and grained Murano glass panels. It belongs in grand and formal rooms where it’s allowed to dominate the design, proportion, and engagement. It will accentuate whites and enrich saturated vivid colors.
