How to Pick the Perfect Color Palette for your Home, San Jose, California

Nothing spruces up a space like a beautiful splash of color. However, choosing a design scheme is often easier said than done. To simplify the process, your favorite local furniture store has put together a quick guide to picking the perfect color palette. Check out Crate & Barrel’s top tips!

3 Tips for Picking the Perfect Color Palette

furniture1. Use Existing Colors

Choosing a new color scheme doesn’t mean you have to buy all new furniture or home decor. Rather, you can easily work with what you already have; it just might take some rearranging. Start by looking around your home for a patterned rug or colorful art print. Then, find other pieces in the same color family either from other rooms or your local Crate & Barrel. Pair it with a neutral paint, and you’re all set!

2. Contrast Warm & Cool Tones

As all of Crate & Barrel’s resident designers will attest, there are no set rules when it comes to interior design. So, when picking a color palette, you don’t just stick to warm tones or cool tones. Instead, try mixing them together. For example, cool gray paint pairs well with warm honey-colored accents.

3. Try Classic Pairings

Maybe you don’t feel comfortable experimenting with new colors. That’s okay! You can try a known pairing instead. Whether it’s black and white or green and blue, these classic color duos look great in any space.
