What is important to know about the choice of color for decorating living space

The prevailing gamma of the spectrum is selected taking into account natural light.

  1. On the north side of the house, yellow and orange tones compensate for the lack of sunlight.
  2. The southern living room or bedroom will help visually make the cold spectrum gamut more comfortable - blue, lilac, green tones.
  3. Excessive lighting on the southwest side is absorbed by the matte surface of the walls in dark shades.
  4. The sun quickly leaves the rooms on the east side, but it is compensated by the delicate beige and peach shades of the walls with jacquard wallpaper - a velvety pattern on a glossy basis.

These rules will not only help adjust the lighting, but will also maximize overall comfort. This is not a big deal if you choose the right background. The rest of the decor is designed to complement and enliven the color palette of the interior. If necessary, it is recommended to renew the upholstery of old furniture. This simple work can be done independently or entrusted to specialists; the main thing is to choose the upholstery and curtain material in one gamut. They do not have to be the same color as the walls, but they must be in harmony.

The selected image should be in harmony with the general combination of shades when choosing the color scheme of the interior. It is desirable that there should be no more than 5-6, where one is the background, the other is a harmonious contrast.

  • pink - burgundy;
  • lilac - purple;
  • beige - wenge (dark brown with overflows);
  • milk - chocolate;
  • peach - emerald;
  • blue “aquamarine” - saturated blue.

Tip. Linear contrasts with horizontal lines visually expand the space, vertical - visually raise the ceilings. Color blocks and individual walls of a different color - a proven method of zoning space and designating accents in the general concept.

Each style has its own “trump” color or palette:

  • natural materials and greenery - ecological style;
  • loft, urbanism - all shades of gray;
  • kitsch and eclecticism accept the mixture of the incongruous;
  • classic - light pastel colors;
  • vintage and retro - contrasting soft colors;
  • in Art Nouveau and postmodernism, burgundy, brown and cream shades are used;
  • hi-tech - metallic, silver and chrome details with a contrast of bright plastic surfaces;
  • Provence and Mediterranean style - blue, lavender and olive in priority;
  • the selection of colors in a minimalist interior is limited to light discreet tones with slight contrasting accents;
  • Arabic and some oriental styles - bright colors of textiles on the background of a natural palette of sand;
  • ethnic styles take into account the age-old addictions of indigenous peoples, but the priority is terracotta, wood and natural colors;
  • historical styles - light pastel shades with the inclusion of blue and golden accents;
  • French grunge, shabby chic and boho chic combine a calm background with bright accents.
