Today on homify, we want to show you the effect that colours can have on the walls of the house as well as cladding.

Before you furnish an environment, it is essential to know what colour will work well with the walls. The effects of the colour of the coatings can change the whole visual perception of a space, both in terms of magnitude and brightness. 

With these 18 photographs by design professionals MAKASA, we have put together different combined effects of special finishes. You will see everything from a stone wall to simple wallpaper. As you compare the differences, you will be able to choose your favorite combinations.

Let's take a look!
