Well, no good room is ever really done is it? The best rooms evolve constantly and that’s the fun of decorating!
Everyone is buzzing about more colour for interiors in 2024.
But it can be scary, right?!
How do you find the line between bold and beautiful and way too much?
Colour is trending
Masterful Maximalist Room by Miles Redd via Elle Decor
If you’re thinking of pulling out your paint brush to add more colour to your world this year, choose a room of a small to medium size and go all the way with wrapping the room. Spaces like bedrooms, bathrooms, offices enclosed dining rooms are perfect for an enveloping coat of colour!
You really don’t need to be a ninja master decorator like Miles Redd (above), you just need to be committed.
In other words, DON’T chicken out and stop with an accent wall.
2024 colour trends to try in your home
Check out where my lovely eDesign client Patrice stopped just short of fabulous for his compact open layout and how I’m nudging him to go for it in this week’s episode of Colour Rescue!
I’m also sharing the most common stymie people face when they start decorating with colour and how I had exactly that experience as a novice decorator myself.
2024 Colour Training
I have big news! I’m launching a new version of my live colour training this spring that’s specially devoted to home projects! It’s everything you need to know to put your new build or renovation vision into words (so you end up with the look you want AND avoid costly mistakes along they way)!
We’ve been doing this virtually for a few years now, and I think it could be even more helpful if you attend with your spouse or partner! That way you are both on the same page when you’re faced with all those choices you’ll need to make.
But don’t worry, you can still attend solo and use your new “charming but bossy” knowledge to tell your contractor or your spouse/partner what needs to happen.
Anyway, that just means you don’t have to go it alone from your computer anymore – spouses and partners welcome!
Colour harmony = relationship harmony = dream home you’ll love forever!
And if you’re a designer or someone who wants to start a design business, the in-person Chicago workshop is for YOU! Register Here.
⭐️ The first 20 who register will get a free VIP ticket with ALL THE EXTRAS ⭐️
Don’t just take my word for it!
Here’s what some of my 2023 graduates said after taking the two day course.
“Really loved this course. I gained so much confidence in determining undertones of the existing hard finishes in my house and choosing colors to improve decorating in my home. Also much more excited to tackle our new build.” – Suzanne V.
“My favorite insight and practice in the course was identifying all of the undertones in a room and pinpointing what should be changed/removed to make the room feel good. Knowing and understanding the “why” behind what works and what doesn’t is so empowering and being able to explain that why to clients is huge! I can’t un-see undertones now and will forever be evaluating the rooms I am in!” – Amie B.
“I think the workshop was a great balance of information from Maria and the applying that information in real life exercises. I appreciated the tools that were provided to help with the exercises as well!” Sydney P.
“So everything I’ve learned is through 25+ years of experience, and I still wouldn’t call myself an “expert” until now! I’ve always known about undertones, but never had a good way to classify them or explain them to someone, so your system has really helped me by simplifying and demystifying the color selection process.” – Kim P.
“Such a great 2 days!! As an amateur decorator with a love of color, I enjoyed the class even more than I expected.” – Shelley
“I have a much better understanding of how to pull a room together with color.” – Kristie S.
“This class confirmed my instincts are correct. One of my coworkers joked I was paying for assurance, but yes!!!! Yes, that’s worth paying for! Before, I didn’t have the confidence to start a project. As a homeowner with a limited budget and a fear of making a costly mistake, my mood boards have collected dust. Your class pulled together the bits of knowledge and instinct I have into a cohesive big picture that gives me the confidence to move forward. Thank you!” – Angela G.
