Let’s make this clear from the start. There is no secret rule when it comes to great Interior Design. There are no rules that can’t or shouldn’t be broken. Interior Design lives by the motto of “imagine, dream and explore”.
For example, the colours you choose have great influence on your mood and your thoughts. While most of us may not spend a lot of time thinking about room color, this so-called small decision affects our every day lives.
One thing you must keep in mind: Don’t follow trends. Trends come and go. The people who live in a home make it beautiful by choosing colors that reflect their likes and their personalities. The trick is to blend those colors you like into a pleasing combination.
Red is a good choice when you want to stir up excitement. In the living room or dining room, red draws people together and stimulates conversation. In an entryway, it creates a strong first impression. It’s a perfect colour to pump things up in your life!
Yellow is a very happy and uplifting colour and feels expansive and welcoming, stimulating the nerves and, according to chromotherapy, purify the body. Be careful, though. Yellow is not a good choice to use in main color schemes when it comes to designing a room. In large amounts, this color tends to create feelings of frustration and anger in people.
Blue is known to have a calming effect when used as the main color of a room. If you opt for a light blue as the primary color in a room, balance it with warm hues for the furnishings and fabrics.
Dark blue evokes feelings of sadness. So refrain from using darker blues in your main color scheme. Stay with the lighter shades of blue to give you and your loved ones a calm effect.
Combining the refreshing quality of blue and the cheerfulness of yellow, green is suited for almost any room on the house.
Green also has a calming effect when used as a main color for decorating. It is believed to relieve stress by helping people relax.
These are just a few tips on how to choose a colour for a room. Always remember that this is a very personal decision, so make sure you choose a colour that suits you, your family and your lifestyle .
Oh, I forgot to mention the one and only rule for great interior design: Make it yours!
