Design Tips to Warm Up Your New Home as Temperatures Drop

Categories: Design Tips | Posted: February 2, 2018 | Comments Off on Design Tips to Warm Up Your New Home as Temperatures Drop

When winter weather brings frigid temps and snowy days (yes, even in Charlotte!), it’s a perfect time to appreciate the comfiness of your beautiful new home. But warmth doesn’t stop with insulation and thermostats. It goes beyond the way we build and construct our homes so they keep you warm. You can help contribute to the coziness of your home décor with these helpful tips!

  1. Lights are an obvious way to counteract the dark days of winter – whether it’s a chandelier with tons of bulbs, candles in the windows, or dramatic landscaping lights outside. They also help add some unique personality to your home.
  2. Pops of bright colors (cheery reds, springy greens, juicy oranges) can help chase the winter blahs away. Think pillows, throws or maybe an accent wall! Don’t be afraid to have fun with color. It’s an instant mood-lifter!
  3. Those Scandinavians are on to something! White doesn’t need to be a cool color… especially when paired with light woods and other rustic accents like brick or stone!
  4. Dress your home in layers! Velvety throw pillows & fuzzy blankets, fluffy rugs and glowing candles add tons of warmth. Think of how much warmer YOU feel when you layer sweaters and scarves and jackets… it’s the same with your home!
  5. Metallics like rose gold, copper and bronze help add the impression of warmth, especially if paired with pastels or earth tones.
  6. Natural wood floors and paneled walls create instant coziness. And natural accents, like potted plants, evergreens, pine cones and twigs, add warmth and a bit of the outdoors.   
  7. Textures are toasty. Look for knitted blankets, animal skin rugs, woven baskets, and squishy pillows. Anything that makes you feel soft and happy.
  8. Leather accents – a chair or an ottoman – add so much warmth to a room. Especially if tucked into a reading nook or quiet corner.

We hope these home decorating tips warm you up as we near the end of winter!

How to incorporate the 2018 Color of the Year into your home décor

Categories: Colors | Posted: January 12, 2018 | Comments Off on How to incorporate the 2018 Color of the Year into your home décor

Pantone has officially crowned Ultra Violet as the 2018 Color of the Year, and it’s certainly a bold choice! Here are some tips for integrating this fashion forward color into your Evans Coghill new home design:

  • Set a tone. Colors can range from soft pastels to rich jewel tones to bright, primary shades. The key to using color well is that it should flow, not be a patchwork of conflicting tones. Before you choose something as bold as Ultra Violet, decide how (or if) it meshes with your current color palette or decorating scheme.
  • Don’t be afraid. If you really love a bold shade, go ahead and use it. Just figure out how much of it you are comfortable with. What level of intensity do you want? A whole room? One wall? An area rug, curtains or pillows? Wouldn’t this bedroom look great with Ultra Violet accent pillows or even flower vases?
  • Think smaller. Powder rooms are a great place to experiment with a bold color like Ultra Violet. Create your own little jewel box of a room with intensely hued walls or towels or other accessories.
  • Keep your home’s exterior quiet. Painting your home an attention-grabbing color like purple could make you the neighborhood pariah. If you really love this vibrant color, try painting your front door or incorporating it in your pots and plantings.
  • Create balance. If you choose a provocative palette, remember to ground the vibrant colors and balance them by adding a rich chocolate, black or peacock blue.

Now that you have some expert decorating tips, it’s time to go Ultra Violet!
