- How to choose perfect colour palette? It’s very important to choose the right colours for your space as it sets the mood and feel to the space. To understand colours, one must understand the colour wheel, which is divided into three parts- Basic colour schemes (red, blue, yellow), Secondary colours (green, orange and purple), Tertiary colours are a mixture of basic and secondary colours (violet, turquoise).You can further divide colours into warm and cool colours. Warm colours (orange, yellow, red) are earthy colours which bring in warmth and comfort. Cool colours (blue, green) make your space look spacious and larger.
- 60-30-10 is a timeless decorating rule that can help you put your colour scheme together easily by putting the right amount of each colour into your house or office space. To understand this better, one should use 10 % for décor, accents used in your space, 30% for secondary colours of your space for use of upholstery and furniture, 60 % for dominant colour of your space for use of walls.
- Don’t know where to start? Start with a fabric or something you love!
If you like a particular bedsheet or a cushion, take that as reference and choose a colour you love from that particular piece.
Colours can also be segregated into two parts such as neutral and cool colours. Neutral colours (pastels, whites, light grey, light beige) don’t have to be boring. You can create a beautiful home with a gorgeous neutral colour palette. You can play with a simple monochrome look by using one colour throughout your space or can add one accent pop colour to contrast it. Cool colours (blue, green) make the space look more airy and cooler.
It’s very important to balance yours colours right. Don’t over do and do less. Maintain your colour palette with a balance of dark and light colours. You can do this in three ways. You can use light ceiling dark walls to highlight paintings and artwork or you can use dark ceiling and light walls to highlight height of the space or lastly you can use light ceiling and light walls to highlight upholstery and furniture.
