Choosing colors for your rooms can be an intimidating task. And who has the extra time these days to really think through all of your options? Add in other aspects like coordinating rugs, drapery and accessories with your room colors can often be even more intimidating than just the color alone. The longest part of a typical room refresh is the time it takes to choose colors and style of the room. Even for the best of us designers, it’s a tough task when it comes to your own personal space.
With the recent introduction of the Martha Stewart Living™ line of paints, carpets, draperies and more, we’ve taken the extra steps to help you bring a room together without the stress of worrying if this color works with that one.
To help you decorate with color confidently, the Martha Stewart Living™ paint chips suggest coordinating colors for your room’s trim and ceiling. Martha and her team take it one-step further for you though. Each paint chip carries a Martha Stewart Color Key symbol. Throughout the palette of over 280 colors, these innovative symbols help you identify with ease groups of colors that work well together.
The Martha Stewart Living™ Paint colors carry through the entire line of Martha’s products throughout Home Depot so you will find these symbols on other products. So coordinating drapery, carpets, area rugs and more has never been easier.
Now I want to be clear here, you still have full control over your design decisions with this system. These color “recipes” as Martha likes to call them are very versatile. You aren’t limited with just one wall color, one trim color, one drapery style, one carpet color, etc. For instance, the paint colors that create the “star” grouping number well over 45 color options. If you choose a wall color that is within the star grouping, you have at least 44 other colors that coordinate beautifully with your main choice.
These color recipes encompass many colors and styles so that you can find the best color “recipe” to fit your home and YOUR style. The system allows you to really be creative and bring your style into your home without the headache of wondering if that color and those drapes really work well with each other.
Notice the back of the Martha Stewart Living™ Paint swatch in the above photo. The top and bottom have coordinating colors to help you with your trim or woodwork color and your ceiling color. Simply fold the top and the bottom of the card over the face of the swatch and you can see how the colors look together instantly. Each paint chip or swatch also has space for you to add the room for this color and just where you want to it in your room.
These are just more useful features that Martha shares to help keep you designing your rooms with style!
