Color blocking has been a new trend lately. I’ve seen it mostly in fashion, especially right now in August, but I think the trend is quickly moving to interiors and architecture. Many people might be scared of color blocking, especially in their home because a lot of people get anxiety over picking out paint colors. Color blocking is usually always a strong relationship of contrasting colors, but if done the right way, it can really look amazing. Here are some of my favorites that use color blocking and I encourage people to try it out. It’s only paint — you can paint over it if you don’t like it. 🙂
Right now the trend is to use bright saturated colors, but if that’s too much for you, color blocking can be done in other ways too. I tried to provide more conservative examples below.
