Gear up for a little Design 101. In this post, we’ll tackle color theory basics that every design enthusiast should know.
If you want the room to be peaceful and relaxing, think of light, natural colors, such as soft whites, creams, beiges, sage greens and other earth tones that give you a soothing feeling. If you want a cheery room, pick cheery colors, such as bright white, yellow, warm pink or any color that feels sunshiny and happy. For an invigorating, classy room, choose warm, dark colors, from burnt orange to eggplant to chocolate. To make your living room cool and posh, pick stark black, white and cool blues.
Whether you want any room to look friendly, formal, warm, cool, elegant or relaxing, matching different shades of paint colors for living rooms could do some magical transformation. The combination of right colors could change the look and feel of a room and may even change how a person would perceive its size. Colors are capable of giving the impression of making a small room look spacious. You can choose from three different color combination schemes from monogram, contrasting and a combination of similar shades. Experts recommend using the monogram color scheme on a course texture where you use various shades of one color only. The effect will enliven the room using the blended colors of various saturations and tones. It is best for embossed wallpaper too.
Decorative Painting Options - There are several different decorative painting options that you can use to decorate your walls. Some of these include stenciling, stamping and sponge painting. You may want to use a pattern from a piece of furniture or even an area rug. One way to tie the room together is to take the pattern from the area rug and then make a stencil using the pattern. This can then be transferred to the wall. This is easy to do as you only need to use tracing paper and acetate. Once you have a stencil, you can then put the same pattern on your wall as is reflected on your area rug.
