Dial up the character: 4 ways the Dbh-biz.info team likes to use bright color!

The process of committing to color for your home can be daunting. You’re looking for the hues that you know you’ll love for years but that also complement your style at this very moment. Tough call!

If you’re feeling stuck, it’s easy to reach for neutrals that don’t pose much of a risk. While our team loves working with a classic like China White or that “barely there” gray, it is just too much fun to flex those creative muscles and use bright colors that reflect our client’s personality. Sure, it can sometimes feel a little risky but, it’s just color! Don’t get into a spiral of overthinking it. Start small if you are truly nervous and then go for it once you get comfy with the idea of bolder hues!

Read on to see how we’ve dialed up the character of many of our clients’ homes by introducing vibrant colors that are anything but boring.
