Tones and colors
The rush we live every day makes us look for homes in which we feel relaxed and full of peace. In eastern Zen culture, line, shape, space, light, and material are essential elements. The furniture design is based on simplicity and naturalness. It is crucial to preserve the natural wood color combining it with neutral tones, like white and gray or other colors, but always low-saturated.
Our house is our refuge. The house walls color transmits sensations and emotions. Our color choice must be based on each room profile before you can set furniture and accessories on it. Before choosing a particular color, make many samples and watch them at different times of the day, and also, under artificial light.
If you believe in Feng Shui, then you know colors are the simplest way to improve the environment and turn each space into a more positive place. White is always associated with something pure and innocent. However, you may consider putting some touches of other colors to attract energy. Oriental traditions consider black as a flourishing color because they link it to wealth and abundance.
The room dimensions are a crucial aspect. If the room is small, it is suggested to choose not very intense colors, preferably the cold ones. The ideal wall to paint with a solid color is the one with windows. If it is disposed to the north, it will receive insufficient natural light, so it is better to use warm and pale colors. If it faces to the south, then use colder tones. Consider that, if you choose the same color for a wall and the ceiling, the dimensions of the room will be undefined, which will make it look longer if the color is not very intense.
If the room receives direct sunlight for many hours during the day, you can use darker colors. If it doesn’t come in directly but provides clarity, it is better to pick shades fainter. For artificial lighting in the room, we must bear in mind that cold LEDs reduce the vibrancy of colors, warm lights accentuate the warmth and halogens provide a white light that enhances the colors.
Beyond the structural and lighting factors, the painting should reflect your style. If you have a contemporary style, cold and neutral colors such as blue or gray will fit for you. If you are classic, then neutrals and warm colors are the ones for you. If you are vintage, use intense colors like mint green, pink, or ocher.
