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.

“ I just wanted to tell you how happy we are with the work you designed and oversaw...We are so proud to show the kitchen and family room to friends and relatives, and love their reactions (gasps of awe and jealousy). Mike and Enio were amazing, working so hard -- every single day, beginning at 7am -- and paying such close attention to details I never would have noticed. They clearly treated this job as their "baby," not wanting to cut corners even if they could get away with it...They also were great about cleaning up; I am positive the garage is cleaner now than before this job started! ”
