Introducing a New Color into an Existing Scheme

     Today’s design tip is in response to a visitor’s question. This response, I believe, can be applied to other situations in which you would like to introduce a new color into an existing interior.

This is the dilemma the visitor submitted:
     Our current home is done in typical neutrals, plus hunter green and burgundy. The carpet is a very creamy tan/beige. I am ready to have my furniture redone in new colors, which it is currently hunter green and all the wall decor coordinates with the hunter green and burgundy's. But the problem is that I absolutely love Cobalt Blue. I want this to be carried out and accented throughout the kitchen and living room. I am very unsure how to go about selecting artwork, colors of new material for the furniture, and accessories. I want to compliment the rooms with select pieces of Cobalt Blue but I need to know how to get started, and what to look for. My style is eclectic. - Thanks, Anonymous

My Response:
     When you have existing colors that must remain, such as the burgundy and green wall finishes you mention, a new color can be introduced by selecting fabrics that combine existing and new. Begin with a fairly large upholstery pattern (one that you really love) that contains burgundy, green, cobalt blue, and tan (your carpet color). Use this fabric it on a significant furniture piece, such as a sofa. Then select coordinating mid and small size patterns for other upholstered pieces, window treatments, and accessories, such as pillows. Once you have the backdrop established, through the upholstery, you can then focus on cobalt blue as the main color in your accents, such as vases, and artwork. In addition, you can promote the combination of colors through the use of an area rug, and/or a wall paper border.

     I hope I have helped.
