Choosing a Colour Scheme to give my Home the Wow Factor?
Colours enhance and effect mood, work and play habits and contribute a subliminal role in influencing our desires; like hunger, passion, anger, peace and calm and more. A few of the following ideas will help you understand and implement successful colour schemes in any environment.
Creating Harmonious Colour schemes:
Residences are often are designed with a colour scheme that that is calm, comfortable, and harmonious. They are often inspired by nature, that is to say, posses a gently harmonious, natural and generally neutral colour palette. Look to nature for prime examples, walking on the beach you can pick up shells randomly. Carefully matching these colours to a paint colour chart, one is often left with sand tones, light greys, beige and numbers. Pale greens, reds and blues may be introduced, adding variety, but the overall tone (chromatic value) of the colours tend to remain consistent.
Picture a 10 step black and white colour chart. Black is on one end while white sits at the opposite. 8 colours gradate from black to white, creating a variety of light to dark grey tones.
