Quick Guide to Colour Combinations (and how to spice up your home)
What’s the best part about designing a home? For most people, it might come down to personal creativity. The freedom to bring life to your home interior is a wonderful feeling. It’s like building a masterpiece of art! With that said, it’ll feel much better to design your home if you know a thing or two about colour combinations. How so?
Everyone knows how to identify and pick a colour, but not all are skilled in mixing and matching different shades and tones. This is why the colour wheel exists. In order to know how colour work well with others, understanding the colour wheel should be a priority.
The colour wheel
In layman’s term, a colour palette is a broad range of colours. There are three types of colours: Primary, secondary, and tertiary. Firstly, the primary colours are red, blue, and yellow. Secondly, the secondary colours are green, orange and purple. These colours are made by mixing primary colours together. Lastly, the tertiary colours are six shades that can be made by mixing primary and secondary colours together.
Understanding your home interior
After knowing the basics of the colour wheel, understanding your home interior should be the next step. Since colour can dramatically affect our moods, feelings and emotions, be creative and make good use of a right colour scheme to set the mood for you and your guests. If you want to achieve a relaxing atmosphere, you should use cool-based colours such as blue, green and purple that are often used to inspire relaxation and calmness.
