How would you like to see your home with a a few splashes of colour here and there? When architects and designers play with colours, the results are absolutely breathtaking and transformational. And your home is the ideal setting for bringing out your inner colour maverick. The interior design trends are shifting toward taking full advantage of the colour trends after playing it “safe” for the past few years. So, feel free to break all the rules while having fun.
The simplest approach to play with colour is by using colour blocking. Choose colours that are opposites on the colour wheel and try combining them to create eye-catching and complementing colour schemes. Consider Joseph Albers or Mondrian. To make the bold colour stand out without being overpowering, you can utilise shades of the same colour or even pair them against neutrals. The result can be mindblowing.
To make any area seem better, layer colours and patterns. Shapes and brilliant colours overlapped to create rhythm and depth result in breath-taking interiors when done correctly. To add elegant flamboyance to a space, add colourful pattern or print cushions to a striking seater.
Bright textile prints will always catch the eye of people. Make a bold decision with sweet colours like tangerine, lime, or fuchsia and enhance them with freeform designs. To maximise oddity, experiment with asymmetrical profiles in geometry. You may also arrange them simply with ottomans, pouffes, carpets, and other small pieces of furniture in color-blocked patterns or with throws on a seater. With window treatments like hand-dyed handloom curtains that promise a personalised statement alongside, you can extend the statement all the way to the walls. Imagine curling up with a book in that space or sipping a hot cup of coffee? Bliss!
When using vibrant colours, make sure the area is adequately illuminated, either with plenty of artificial lighting or with enough of natural light streaming in. It not only makes the environment serene and comfortable, but it also offers the chance to experiment with darker colour tones. An additional layer of glitz is added to the area. This gives the area an added style and elegance.
Make the interaction of colours in your home a living experience by hanging collage-like compositions on the walls. Create a gallery wall by combining color-filtered pictures and gorgeous, natural landscapes. Try using hand-painted Moroccan or Turkish-style tiles to add interest to the background. Turki mirror artworks that play with reflectivity and stained glass can also add an Indian touch. You may easily create feature walls if you use a nice assortment of colours. It’s about time you put your creativity to good use.
Contrary to popular perception, strong, colourful statements can work just as effectively in white interiors as they can in any other colour. Try it with contemporary works of art that combine and blend many colours; these can be found in the form of framed paintings, printed graphic boards, handcrafted tapestries, and other art forms. Repurposed items like repainted antique furniture or door panels that offer a fresh meaning to previous sentiments can also take front stage. Who knows what you can create with some unused items lying around at home?
To sum it up, it’s ideal to be creative and not go overboard. It’s your space and it’s your home. You absolutely want it to look attractive.
