Colour changes everything – once the paint is on the wall transformation happens:
colour changes the mood, atmosphere, temperature and can visually enhance the size of the room.
And, violet blue is the one for 2018 – a bold violet can work well as accents
Consider where and how much colour to use. Remember a few general rules:
bold colours advance and cooler colours recede
Cool receding colours tend to make a space look more spacious
warm advancing colours make a room more intimate & cosy
Hues have their own level of natural brightness; thats why yellow, red, red/orange appear brighter and are used where maximum attention is required and have more energy and visually advance
The cooler hues, green, blue and indigo are more passive and recede making a room appear more spacious
All colours have under hues eg white may have either a cool, green undertone or a warmer yellow undertone – this helps when matching finishes and fabrics.
Adding the various tints, shades and tones of colour creates variety and character.
