Bold colors for your house
Painting your walls is as important as choosing your furniture and, when you are choosing to use bold colors, it’s natural to be a little nervous about the result. We know, it’s a lot easier to paint the walls in neutral colors or in trendy tones (pink is the star this year), but if you want to be original and choose otherwise, here’s a guide to help you achieve the desired result.
Are you afraid of using dark colors? We invite you to discover three dramatic colors that will transform your home into something visually stunning.
If you want an unusual living room or bedroom, one that will be breathtaking, paint the walls in a dark shade of blue. The best option is the mediteranean blue, or one that has a tint of green. In contrast with white, beige or golden tones, it will give a very dramatic, yet elegant vibe. This is a color you can succesful use, regardless of the style you chose for the room decor.
Another color you could use in any room is the anthracite gray. Depending on the colors you match it with, you can either create a cool looking room or a warm one. For a cool room, you need to combine it with multiple other shades of gray and use a few accents of color (i.e. yellow). If you want a warmer look, choose shades of pink, mint green, turquoise or any other pastel color.
Black is the star color in Scandinavian decor. It is able to offer any room dramatism and elegance at the same time. Many people are afraid of using black to paint their walls, fearing that the result will be suffocating, but if you chose to combine it with the right colors, the results are simply stunning. For white furniture and woodwork in the same color, the black walls will serve as the perfect canvas. The contrast will emphasize all the elements in the room.
