We’re surrounded by colors everywhere we go but we hardly notice them. Yet when it comes to choosing a color scheme for our home’s interior, it’s always difficult. There so many different options, each one with their own beautiful characteristics. So how do we make a choice?
Neutral is a safe but elegant choice.
Neutral colors such as beige, cream or white don’t usually stand out. They’re a safe choice because of that but they’re also elegant. Choose neutrals for the walls of the living room if you want it to look simple and classy but include a more vibrant accent color for the accessories.
Mix and match.
What’s great about a white background is that you can basically use any colors you like for the little things like the lamps, the photo frames, the area rug or the pillows. Take this opportunity to reate a cheerful décor.
Don’t underestimate gray shades.
Gray is a color that doesn’t really tell us much. It looks neutral but if you know how to use it can make the whole room stand out. Use a darker shade with a blue or purple tint for a glamorous look or a light shade for a bright and modern look.
Teal is a vibrant but also relaxing color.
Very few colors can be as bold as teal and still feel relaxing. Combine this color with bright shades to emphasize its royal look. It always look amazing when combined with white and yellow.
Purple always looks glamorous.
Many people are too afraid to use strong colors such as purple in their homes. However, it’s better to risk it with a bold shade than to have a boring house. Purple is a color that looks glamorous no matter what the setting is.
Yellow is the most cheerful color of all.
Yellow is often associated with the sun and summer. It’s a wonderful color for small spaces because it makes them feel larger. It’s also great for spaces like playrooms. Yellow looks amazing when combined with white but it also usually needs a contrasting shade.
A darker shade of green can often look surprising.
Green is a fresh and vibrant color associated with nature but we rarely see dark shades of green in nature which is one such a color can often take us by surprise. Keep things simple and interesting at the same time.
Combine cool and warm colors.
A balanced décor should include both warm and cool colors. For example, If you paint the walls gray or blue, then use orange, red, yellow or brown for the furniture and accessories. You can mix and match several different shades as long as the overall look is harmonious.
