Using Color in Home Design & Décor

Color is an important part of any home. Whether you prefer light, neutral tones or vibrant shades that pop, color schemes are an integral part of the overall design. Whether the main focus or complementary, colors can provide contrast and make statements to help achieve your remodeling goal (modern chic, timeless elegance, or anything else).

Furniture—chairs, pillows, lamps, etc.—is a great way to provide pops of color and contribute to the overall color scheme.

“ Thank you so much for the very thoughtful gift and card you sent to welcome [our son] home. He has been following the baseball standings with great interest, and is looking forward to many messy meals with his Red Sox bib and bottle. And whether he realizes it or not, his meal times have been made much more pleasant - and his parents are much happier - because of the fabulous new kitchen you designed and built for us. It was really kind of you to think of us at this special time in our lives. ”
