Keep Tone in Mind

Keep Tone in MindEach room in your home is going to have a different tone, even though the colors you use should flow throughout your entire home, the tone will be different in each individual room. You want to feel differently in your bedroom than you do in your living room or kitchen. Therefore, when you are decorating a room with paintings, you should keep the tone of the room in mind as you are doing so. Be sure you understand the importance of keeping the tone of the room in mind when you are decorating the room. An example of keeping the feel of the room would be if your room is bright and cheerful colors the painting should reflect the cheerfulness of the room; the pictures should have bright happy images, in this way the rooms tone is not changed. Dark pictures would not look good in a room that is bright and cheerful.

Another thing to remember is that the style of the room is part of its tone. If the room is depicting furniture from periods of time, modern artwork would not be appropriate for the tone of the room. If the tone of the room is richly colored then muted colors in pictures would not reflect the rich feel of the room, the pictures will need to be richly colored as well so that it makes the same statement as the room. Remember that the tone of the room can be set by a number of factors, including decorations and furniture. Be sure that you use yours correctly and be sure that you set the tone keeping all of these things in mind.
