Eye-catching Colour Ideas for Your Home

Interior Design & Decor



Do you know that communicating without words is possible?


Colours are everywhere and there are approximately 10 million colours in existence. In fact, they play a vital role in our lives as they form a visually powerful international language.


Colours are irreplaceable. They are also capable of swaying your thinking, causing specific reactions, and affecting your actions.


If you wish to express something through your home’s interior design, you have to know how colours influence our mood, how they behave, and how they can work with other colours.


In this article, we will be sharing some interesting colour ideas for your interior design.


But first, we will have to learn how to use colours wisely in interior design. Here are three steps to doing so:



Step One-A: Knowing Your Living Space Well (Lights)


Lighting has the greatest impact on spaces and colours, especially sunlight. To understand the relationship between colours and lighting, you need to understand how light acts.


The orientation of the room directly affects the direction of sunlight, causing different sunlight refraction effects. So when your room is facing west and there is no direct sunlight, what your room receives is the refraction of cool colours, making you feel a little cold. Because of this, you may consider designing your room with warm colours. For rooms that bring in direct sunlight, you can consider using some cool colours.


In addition, high-gloss materials tend to reflect light well so they will brighten the colours. Low-gloss materials, on the other hand, will absorb light and darken the colours. So it is important that you select the right materials for your home.


Step One-B: Knowing Your Living Space Well (Functions Of Each Room)


The functions of the room also affect our choice of colours. Overly strong colours are best used in spaces that are not commonly used because they could have a direct emotional impact on people. However, strong colours in various tones can still be used in some of the spaces in our home, such as the hallway.


Step Two: Choosing The Right Colours


The best way to match the space with the colour that suits it the best is to first sketch them out or use a 3D drafting software to render before putting in both light and dark perspectives to observe the overall effect at the same time.


Step Three: Combining Different Colours


Combining different colours is simple; for example, you can use the same hue of colour with different shades. If we only look at a colour on its spectrum, it can form a series of corresponding colours from light to dark. Matching a colour’s brightness with different tones can also form a series of contrasting colours.


When you are using a single colour with varying hues and tones, you need to pay attention to its effects on materials of different furnishings in order to avoid a monotonous and dull atmosphere.


There are also many colour-picking tools online where you can select your main colour before finding suitable matching colours. These tools can help you create the desired colour palettes for your space. 



Amazing Colour Ideas For Your Home


Red


The colour red symbolizes strength, love, and adventure. In the Chinese community, red is a very significant colour as it is the colour of luck and prosperity. The Oriental style of interior design often incorporates red-coloured elements.


Do keep in mind that you should not use too much red in designing your interior as it only works as a simulating colour, just like black. You can use red in places where you want to enhance contrasting colours.

Orange & Yellow


Orange is an energetic colour that represents the season of fall and harvesting. The energy of red and the happiness of yellow become the colour orange when combined together.


Yellow stands for positive energy and happiness. It is also often associated with hope, warmth, and sunshine. Yellow is thus a welcoming and uplifting colour.


Orange and yellow have similar characteristics, making them both suitable for your home’s entrance foyer.

Green


The colour green is the colour of growth and spring. Its colour psychology is harmony, safety, and nature.


It is also a calm and restful colour and brings freshness to your living space. It will also look good in your bedroom and kitchen.
