Choose the color scheme of a house, for the more indecisive, can be a rather difficult task. The possible variety of color are practically infinite as well as their combinations. Clearly there is no unique pattern , but many possibilities that result in excellent results, as well as the possibility of “mistakes” are just as numerous. So let’s see some general rules to consider when choosing the color to give the interior walls of the house, keeping in mind, however, that even the color of furniture, carpets, curtains and items of furniture .

First, consider the so-called hard or color circle. In this record, the colors “primary”, the red, yellow and blue, are coupled to the secondary colors (purple, green and orange) in a sequence that highlights the various aspects of the colors. First on the right half, bent at 45 degrees, we have the so-called “warm colors”, while the left half includes the “cool colors.” Moreover, the colors of adjacent segments are composed of shades affini mind the cloves opposed to the rim are formed by colors “complementary”, such as the green and the red.


The first consideration concerns the brightness of the room that we have to decorate and paint. If you tend to be dark, dark shades are not very well suited because they would tend to make it even more dark, for which you will choose light colors, not excluding of course the classic white. If the room is very bright, to make the environment more welcoming indicates the color a bit ‘more loads. As for the color type, much depends on the room, and why not, the character and tastes of those who live there. In general, warm, neutral colors are roughly more restful, so suitable to the sleeping area, while cool colors tend to be vibrant and stimulating, therefore suitable for living areas. Of course, to avoid some chromatic monotony, rooms with walls and furniture can be clearly associated with small ornaments and furnishings of dark and vice versa.

Once you have chosen the overall tone more or less dark and the base color, you must define the color pair the extremes we have two possibilities. The first, and perhaps the simplest, is a scheme tend to be monochromatic, played on the different shades of a color or colors are very similar, then belonging to adjacent segments of the color wheel. The environment will be created harmonious, balanced but normally lively little Conversely, walls and furniture where you dare complementary colors, then belonging opposed to segments of the color wheel, create vibrant environments, with elements that enhance one another by way of example, a vase of yellow color that stands out against a wall color blue ‘verve and movement to the environment and highlights the centerpiece, of course, in these cases, you need to measure taste and to avoid areas that are too colorful, in the end, may tire This can be useful drawings of the room with the colors that are used to verify, in a first approximation, the effect Final Even better if you have the ability to access software “rendering” These PC programs allow you to provide a scanned image of the room very accurate and realistic enough to be similar to a photograph, thus decreasing the possibility that colors chosen for walls, furniture and furnishings, once put in place, may give different results from those expected.
