From the mouth watering tango color on a tangerine to the eye catching honey gold accents on your kitchen cabinet knobs, color is everything. It is the very thing that pulls you closer to something or it is the very thing that will push you far, far away. In the world of fashion, the right colors and color harmony are what attracts the eye and makes a person really “pop” out in a crowd. Very similar to fashion, color is the very center of design. When most people enter a space, what do they do? They look around at their surroundings and usually search for something to catch their eye and possibly admire. Color harmony in a design space can make you feel energized or relaxed and comfortable!

The key to using backsplash is to never overdue it. A backsplash is the biggest factor that can make or break your design. By that I mean, it is great to use a bold backsplash. It can create a very dramatic and eye catching effect. Just remember, in doing so, to try to use all other accessories and materials in the space in a more simple way. Too many bold accessories/materials will make a space look overcrowded and confusing. With the right use of a backsplash, you and your guests will never want to leave the space.
