We usually find neutral and sober tones in our interior environments, but sometimes injecting colour into a space can energize a home.
So how do you manage this without overwhelming the interior design? Today we are going to find out.
We've put together 10 tips from top professionals from around the world. You'll see all sorts of inspiration, learning how you can integrate colour into your home flawlessly.
Shall we take a look?
One of the biggest fallacies about interior decor is that colour should only be used for walls. On the contrary, you can brighten up your home by opting for white walls and very vibrant and colourful accessories. Cushions, carpets and green plants… there are all sorts of options!
By sticking to a carefully selected palette of tones, you'll avoid colours that clash. Don't hesitate to use many complementary colours, however, including greens and purples.
As you can see in this bedroom, the result is stunning.
Apart from complementary colours, you must never mix more than three colours in the same room if you want a balanced look and feel.
You want complementary tones that enhance the space!
When entering a room, your eye will be drawn to strong focal points of colour. This is why you don't want to include several vibrant colours in one place.
Carefully think through the colours that you are going to incorporate in a living area and make sure you have a few items that pack a punch rather than any colours that overwhelm the space.
Playing on contrasts can be the key to successful decor. Whether it's textures, materials or colours, it often brings depth to your attempts at interior layout. As for colour, you can try to associate vibrant tones with an immaculate and neutral interior.
As we can see here, the combination will always be a success!
Do you want your home to be rustic, Mediterranean, industrial or contemporary? The colours that you pick need to go hand in hand with the style that you choose for your home.
For example, in this design, we can see how the black and white combination with a touch of pink makes for a very glamorous design.
When we want to introduce colours into our home, we need to think about the colours that already exist! Introducing a colour without considering the pre-existing colours is a very big mistake.
For example in this bedroom, we can see how the wallpaper has been considered before the green tones have been introduced.
Use your common sense – don't mix colours like orange and red.
You should use colours that work in harmony with one another. For example, here we can see how fuchsia, violet and purple work together.
