6 Ideas That Will Help You Successfully Decorate With Color

6 Ideas That Will Help You Successfully Decorate With Color | Color is perhaps one of the most important elements for any design or décor endeavor. It can have a profound impact on human moods and emotions. Not only is it a versatile design element, it’s also a power transformative design tool. Any space, no matter if it is in Bukit Batok or Marina Bay, can benefit well from the use of color. Fiery shades can evoke passion and rage; blue shades can inject peace and serenity after a long stressful day; green tones encourage rest and relaxation and being one with nature. Don’t be afraid of exploring the beauty that color will undoubtedly bring to your space.

In fact, almost every aspect interior décor requires an understanding of color. However, before you pick up your paintbrush, read on for some must-know rules on decorating with color in order to improve your color knowledge.

Choose a room to experiment with

If you’re new to color, then your first time decorating with color can certainly be an intimidating experience. You can start things off by choosing a room in your house to experiment with. Lean towards choosing the smaller spaces in the house rather than the larger main areas such as the living room. This allows you to have a chance to test new colorways or wallpaper patterns without having to make a major commitment. For example, you can test out new paint ideas in the guest bedroom or small home office. Experimenting with smaller rooms also helps to keep potential pitfalls away from the main areas if something does go wrong with your color choices. You never know, the nice off-white hue you chose in the paint store might end up looking too yellow in your space.

Steer clear of yellow whites

White is a tried and tested go-to hue that is widely known to create the illusion of more space. With so many hues and tones in the white spectrum, the question often boils down to which shade of white is best? Unfortunately, not all whites were created equal. Certain shades of white, such as those with crisp gray or blue undertones, lend better to keep things bright and airy. You should, however, steer clear of yellowish whites, which will tend to warm up and close in a space. More yellowish or brownish shades of white can end up looking too muted or dirty, unless, of course, that is the look you are going for. Remember to stick to the lighter end of the white spectrum when you are trying to create the illusion of more space in your rooms.

Pair complementary colors together

Some colors naturally work well together. Others, however, can end up clashing terribly. Determining which colors will and won’t work together is not rocket science. Consult the color wheel in order to know which colors to incorporate in your space. Get to know the color wheel in and out when pairing colors. A general rule of thumb is to pair colors that sit opposite the color wheel together. This approach will create feisty and vibrant interiors. Alternatively, you can also choose from colors on either side of your main color. These colors that are grouped close together on the color wheel will also complement each other well. For example, blue and green or orange and yellow. This approach will create serene and calming interiors.

Understand underlying personalities

Each color has an underlying personality of its own. Color isn’t a one-size-fits-all idea. Just as no singular design style exists for every person, not all colors will work for everyone. Some colors that work well for you, might not work as well for others. It is thus important that you develop a relationship with color and ensure that the underlying personality of each shade matches yours well. If you are going for a serene and calm space, blue is your best choice, while red works better if you are full of adrenaline and the life of the party. Also, mixing colors will get the party really started. For example, cobalt blue will inherit the attributes of both red and blue imparting both serenity and feistiness at the same time.

Bolden your bathrooms with bold color

The bathroom is always a good space for you to experiment with color. This can help you on your way to pushing your own personal color boundaries. Color (and bold patterns and wallpaper) is often used to great effect in en suite bathrooms. What’s great about it is that there are so many mediums to incorporate color in bathrooms. You can paint all the walls a bold emerald green to really make a statement. Otherwise, you can experiment with bold colored tiles on one wall (behind the vanity if you prefer to take things slow) or throughout the whole bathroom (if you’re adventurous). Wallpaper can also be used to complement the tiling and paint. However, do be careful that you keep the wallpaper away from wet areas as it surely won’t survive the moisture. Placement is thus an important aspect to consider when working with color and wallpaper.

Dark colors anchor a space

Homeowners have traditionally been discouraged to use dark colors in their space. However, dark interiors have become increasingly popular in recent years. In order to translate them well into the look of your home, make sure that you use it pragmatically. For example, if you have a large space that is difficult to anchor, a dark color palette will help you well on your way. Darker shades will help cocoon the space and make you feel more supported in the space. This doesn’t mean that small spaces cannot be enveloped in dark color. If coziness and warmth is the effect that you are going for, you can create a boudoir effect with dark colors in teeny-weeny spaces, especially if it’s a bedroom.
