Create your ideal corner - use the power of colours

The basic impression and atmosphere of each space are dictated by the colours and the skill of their combination. Colours are a powerful weapon for architects in creating an environment. Colours are also used to transform and conceal space deficiencies. They can increase or decrease spaces, lower or lift ceilings, and mask disadvantages. The greatest advantage of using colours in the interior is that with little money and simple work, you can achieve dramatic results. The choice of colours in the apartment should be in alignment with the wishes and habits of the host. The interior designer adjusts the colours according to the matching rule. A contemporary design uses one basic colour or a palette of uniform colours, with accents in a different colour. These accents can be part of the furniture (drawers, armchairs, showcases or shelves for TV).

Something about colours

The colours of the rainbow spectrum are divided into hot and cold. Warm colours are: red, orange and yellow, and cold: green, blue and purple. Each of them can vary to a warmer or cooler, depending on the component that dominates it. In addition to the basic ones, there are also black, white, grey, brown, beige, ocher, pink, silver, gold ...

Yellow is the warmest and symbolises the light of the Sun. It is extrovert, optimistic and dynamic. It is recommended for small rooms and for young people.

The green colour is rarely used as the dominating interior colour. Modern designers green colour reception areas, youth kitchens and work spaces. Some people claim that green symbolises the ecological connection between the apartment and the environment.

The blue colour makes up most of our environment. It is pleasant in the interior when reflects colours of nature. It symbolises peace, coldness, closeness to oneself, a tendency to dream.

Violet colour is created by mixing blue and red. As a rule, it is cold and monotonous. It should not be the dominant colour in living rooms and dining rooms. It is suitable for rooms with little light because regardless of the size of the window, it gives the character of darkness. If you love this colour, use it as a detail.

Red-a symbol of love, passion, blood and fire. It lifts work energy, stimulates activity but also awakes strong emotions. Designers are happy to use red, with varying success. It fits well with most colours, but it stands out in white-black and grey areas.

Orange colour: one of the hottest colours, full of life and optimism. Scientists claim that it encourages a faster flow of oxygen in the brain. Psychologists recommend orange for workrooms and children's rooms. They say it stimulates intellectual development and the formation of a stable personality.

The black colour is a good complement to any colour. It brings a classy note to space. It is very effective in bathrooms and kitchens, with some reddish details. Black is unmistakable as the colour of leather furniture, but also for details - vases, sculptures, mirror frames and paintings.

White colour: in theory, a set of all rainbow colours. In practice, it reminds more of the absence of all colours. It is widely used in modern interiors of all styles. It leaves the impression of a science fiction in which the form and function dominate the esthetics. Depending on the colour added to it as a pigment, the space character also varies. With a little blue or grey, the ambient is ice-cold. With ocker or orange note, space gets on the warmth and vitality. White, like black, is perfect for all combinations and decorative accents.

Brown symbolis

es the ground, strength, and tenderness of the autumn. That's how it should be applied.

Grey colour carries all the good of its components - black and white. It is perfectly combined with the accents of all rainbow colours.

Silver, gold, copper, as the details in the home are good, but as basic colours, they are used in clubs, restaurants, exhibition areas.

Principles of colouring space

Colours are combined on the basis of the similarity- analogue colours (green-blue, green and green-yellow), and the principle of contrast-complementary colours (red and green, blue and orange, violet and yellow). If you want a quiet, harmonious, relaxing home atmosphere, choose the first principle. The principle of contrast is used in dynamic and creative spaces, which live in communication with users, attract the attention of guests and be imagination.
