The cool colour palette comprises of the left-hand side of the colour wheel and is absolutely relaxing. This is why people like to use it in their homes, but here’s the catch: you need to embellish it with some warm accents, or the space can look very stark and frigid. So today, we’ll be sharing a complete guide on how you can decorate cool coloured homes with warm accents! Let’s take a look:
1. Start with the floors
The floor is often times the most overlooked part of an interior design. People tend to notice everything at eye-level, and only after that look up and below. This is why introducing some warm accents through the floor is a great idea. They won’t be as obvious but still have a great overall impact when it comes to making cool coloured spaces look inviting.
2. Furniture for all
Another great way to introduce warm accents in cool coloured interior designs is with the help of furniture. There are two ways you can do this. Number one is by choosing a large decorative statement table in a war, texture or colour. Second is by using a number of various side objects in warm accents as the sidelines of your décor.
3. Reflective surfaces
To maximize the impact of warm accents in your interior designs, you can make use of reflective surfaces throughout your spaces. For example, decorative mirrors in living rooms, bedrooms, corridors, studies and even foyers are a great way to do that. As for kitchens, you can opt for chrome plated appliances to get a similar impact.
4. Use bold colours
You can use the bright, warm colours from the right-hand side of the colour wheel to counterbalance the cool ones. This can be done in the form of accessorizing. You can hand artwork with warm colours, have accent chairs, quilts and throw pillows of such colours to harmonize with the cool palette.
5. With golden lighting
An intangible way to introduce warm accents in cool coloured interior designs is by using dim gold lighting. Such warm lighting has a way of diminishing the coldness of colours and imbuing the space with a sense of invitation and coziness. The incandescent glow of such lighting is an awesome way to make your spaces seem welcoming.
