The soul of the house dwells in the colors. They have the power to inspire, motivate, cheer, reassure, and promote a host of other emotions and sensations. So the choice of paint colors for the walls should be very well planned to get the maximum benefit of the chosen color, after all it is good to take into account that an inappropriate color may cause the opposite effect.
The first thing to look at before choosing the ink color is to define what the style of the environment will be. For clean, neutral, modern and Scandinavian-style decorations, light and neutral colors are the most recommended.
Whether for a rustic style décor or a more bare and jovial proposal, vibrant colors are the best requested. Pastels on the wall are also welcome in the case of decorations that follow a retro or romantic line, for example.
Once the decoration proposal has been defined, look at the room where the paint will be applied. For rooms, especially children's rooms, the tip is to use light and neutral colors in order to favor relaxation and sleep. Colors like yellow or orange can be used in bedrooms, but prefer the softer nuances.
The next point is to match the colors of the walls with the rest of the decor. In this case we recommend that you have a chromatic circle on hand to guide you through the choices. In general, the trend is by three combinations: the complementary, the analogous or the monochromatic.
The complementary colors are those that are on the opposite side of the chosen color in the chromatic circle. For example, the complementary color of blue is yellow and its shades closer, such as orange. In the case of red color, the complementary is green. Complementary combinations can be made on the wall itself or on the furniture. A blue wall, for example, can be complemented with an orange sofa.
The analogue colors are those that are immediately next to the chosen color. For example, the analogous colors of green are blue on the left and yellow on the right.
And finally are the monochromatic ones that as its name suggests are the nuances of the same color. This type of combination is also commonly known as degrade or tone over tone.
Besides these three possibilities of combinations with the colors of the spectrum, there are still neutral colors. These, by the way, are the most used in walls of houses. White, black, gray and beige tones are also on the list, also known as Off White.
