Our Color Palettes

You can find palettes in a lot of aspects in life. Artists use this thin board to mix their colors for painting, musicians vary their tone range in pieces, and makeup gurus know it best as eyeshadow or blush palettes. Interior designers recognize it as a collection of cohesive colors within a space. It can be the easiest element to use when planning a coordinating room; but can also be taken to the next level with risky combinations.

An artist’s palette

The A.Clore Interiors team is always brainstorming ways to bring our audience interesting and fun content that represents us as a company. Our newest creation are Color Inspiration Palettes! These are a combination of 5 hues pulled from an inspiring photo. All the colors you see are available as Sherwin William paints. Embrace your inner designer and get ready to start painting!

 

You’ll be able to find these color palettes on our Instagram. If you aren’t ready following, our handle is @acloreinteriors. On this page, the collages can be found under the “Palettes” highlight. While there, you can admire all our aesthetically-pleasing project photos. Plus, scroll down to find all the graphics naming topics we have previously blogged!

When will you be able to see these? The palettes are already being produced and posted! Stories will be posted intermittently with our other relevant content.  If you have a high quality photo, painting, or object that has always caught your eye with its mesmerizing colors, send it to us. We can create a palette specially for you!

Why You Shouldn’t Follow Trends

Following trends makes it hard to design a truly livable home. Your average growing family can’t maintain white couches, white cabinets, white everything! A slim, leather couch isn’t as comfy as a big, plush sectional sofa. You may like the look of modern furniture, but it’s hard to fall in love with the feel. Plus, the upkeep of making it look picture perfect all the time is stressful!

As beautiful as this kitchen is, it may not be right for you.

TV Spoiler: They’re Staged Photos!!

The many rooms that you swoon over on Pinterest and HGTV are staged. That means a designer will place coordinating decor, fluff pillows, and stratigecally place furniture in the picture. This look does not last! It’s removed and then you start living in them. So don’t stress if you home doesn’t look picture perfect all the time!

The placed linens and glassware in this photo aren’t there 24/7!

Dont shy away from Sentimental Touches

I grew up with school photos and Christmas cards hanging on the fridge. But nowadays, that would completely ruin someone’s aesthetic. Actually, we cringe a little inside when we see magnets.  Add some sentiment back into your house! The old table, centerpiece, and pillows add so much personality to this room! Shelving adds space for personal knick-knacks and picture frames, too.

These blue walls bring in more personality than gray; and the shelving allows for family picture frames!

Pick a Color Scheme that YOU Like

We get that white and grey matches everything, but who cares? You should base your home’s colors off of what you won’t get tired of seeing everyday, something that shows your personality. It keeps it more interesting than if you were to match your neighbor’s color scheme.

Here we see a bubbly personality shown through light blue and coral.

Mix Textures, Colors, and All the Above

We love an eclectic design. You’ll look well-travelled and it makes a room cozy very quickly. This technique defines your space, the way you chose to mix stripes and floral, or glass and leather.

Cowhide, brick ,and cottons; what a mixture!

Walking into a house should be like reading a story; so tell yours as you design! You may live in a cookie-cutter built house, but the interior doesn’t have to be!
