Triadic and tetradic colour schemes are more difficult to successfully achieve, so I will let you soak in the complementary scheme for now.

It’s been a hot minute since I blogged last, but I’m looking to make this part of my work more consistent. Seeing photos and words come together in harmonious and even rhythmic patterns is what so many look for while perusing the internet. For that reason, I’m hoping to make my blogs both informative and visually pleasing.

There are many colour schemes one can use when decorating a room and not make a mess of it (using too many colours, for instance). Choosing just two opposing colours on the wheel is a fool-proof way to do this. These colours are referred to as “complementary”. They pull the best out of one another and create a very bold space. Check out this family room in Oakville I decorated as an example. 

Chic Decor handpicked by the Three Best Rated as a Top 3 Designer in Oakville.

The Oakville based design firm was chosen by the more than 40 million monthly unique users that comprise the Houzz community from among more than one million active home building, remodeling and design industry professionals.

Now I’d say it’s time for a lesson in design jargon. The words hue, shade and tint are often misused among the general population, so, for those of you wanting to sound as knowledgeable as design experts, here are some definitions to remember. A hue is simply another word for colour. That’s all it is; Blue is a hue. A shade is a colour that has had black added to it. For example, navy is a shade of blue (note that navy is darker than true blue). Finally, a tint is a colour that has had white added to it. For example, pink is a tint of red. Knowing the meaning of these three words will make you more informed and educated on the topic of colour!

I want to restart my blogging on a topic that I think most everybody can relate to – colour coordination. Although it may appear that designers and decorators have some unattainable level of knowledge on matters like coordinating hues, shades and tints, this isn’t entirely true. There are many factors involved in designing and decorating a room, one of the first being to decide on a colour scheme. Consulting a colour wheel is a great place to start. 

Few things are as satisfying as living in a home that truly reflects your personal style.Yet when it comes to design, many of us are still striving to create our ideal living spaces. “People know what they like and don’t like, but they often don’t know how to go about the process,” says Margarida Oliveira of Chic Decor.

I used blue and orange as the primary colours and the space has become striking and attention-grabbing. The homeowners now love spending time here because it breathes life and exuberance.

12 years in the making and I’m still learning and loving and searching for ideas and inspiration. Design isn’t just what I do – It’s what I follow, read and dream about. On a daily basis I try to better myself by staying on top of trends and product launches relevant to those of us living in the GTA.

Chic Decor of Oakville, Ontario has won “Best Of Customer Service on Houzz®, the leading platform for home remodeling and design.
