6 interiors that redefine the warm color palate by D’Initial Concept
A warm color palate consists of the bright, cozy spectrum of the color wheel. These colors reinforce amity, intimacy and a sense of belonging while keeping it all fresh. In the context of interior design, a usual warm themed color palate consists of dark browns, teak and other earthy colors. In retrospect, they stay away from the brighter end of this spectrum, from colors that are too popping to be considered cozy. This includes an aversion to yellows and oranges, which leads us to the design we will be showcasing today. D’Initial Concept is an innovative design firm, and has taken on several residential interiors. Of their brilliant cache, today we will be featuring an apartment that has redefined the warm color palate.
- Yellow in the feature wall
Yellow is considered an extremely extrovert color choice, but is definitely on the warm end of the color palate. To apply that successfully in any interior concept would require some fine tuning and tweaking of contrasting values. In the interior below D’Initial Concept has taken the feature wall end of the living room, and designed it with yellows; then turned down the rampant visuals by designing the other side of the room in drab, unfettered greys and blacks. The visual harmony of this scheme has struck quite a balance between outgoing yet subdued.
- Brick walls and pendent lights
Brick walls are an extremely industrial overture; this design implementation is also a fine way to cozy up the ambiance. The red-brown color scheme of the brick wall tips to the warm category, and to enhance its visuals, a drop pendent light is always a must. The specified glare of pendent lights manage to play with the shadows, making the brick wall nook an intimate place to be.
- Sepia Glass and Oak wood laminates
The kitchen follows an elongated architectural layout, and since warm colors have a knack for narrowing down the space, playing with that in this context must have been a challenging task. D’Initial Concept has masterfully carried out the theme even in such a narrow space though, by using wood as the counter backsplash and sepia colored glass windows to imitate an element of transparency – a genius combination of warm colors, while the rest of the kitchen design is carried out in whites.
- Distressed and blue
Shabby chic can reinforce a very ‘lived-in’ vibe in any newly minted interior, so D’Initial Concept merged that aesthetic with yellows to ramp up the visuals, and blues to balance out the tonal dissonance to create an artfully interesting study room come home office.
- Walnut laminates and cozy comforters
Brown is perhaps the most incongruent of the warm end of the color wheel. It has so many shades, textures and varieties that it is hard to match the right ones. D’Initial Concept has managed to find the perfect walnut brown laminate, and amalgamate it with a cerulean.
This combination of warm and cool color schemes is expertly carried out, and balanced out by the neutral white color of the cozy comforter.
