First off, what really are vibrant colours? Are they the jewel-toned palate that’s so coveted by homeowners these days? Are they the neon style colours that are used in moderation? Or are they the occasional bold colour that has a huge and impactful presence in a space?
The answer is, they are a combination of all three. The mainstream ‘vibrant’ colour palate consists of bright red, electric blue, emerald green, dull orange, mauve, butterscotch yellow and more. But the catch is how to use them in an interior design? Let’s find out!
1. Reds and splashes
Red is a colour that has a very bold presence. If you use it in large quantities, it’s going to end up taking over your whole space, so it’s always better to use it in moderation. Red is usually used to contrast otherwise dull spaces. It stands out the best when used in monochromatic interior designs. The whites and blacks make an amazing backdrop to its vivid presence.
2. Cobalt and tangerine
Cobalt and tangerine belong to the colour families of blue and orange respectively. Using them both in tandem is great because on is darker and the other is lighter, so they end up making a great combination. However, don’t forget to pit them in a largely white backdrop and use them in moderation. Otherwise you’ll end up with a space that’s too vivid and headache inducing.
3. Rust against white
Rust is one of those colours that can be used in any style of interior design. Got a vintage ambiance that you need to contrast? Use rust in an antique form. Need a vivid colour to go with your stark white modern kitchen? Rust has got your back. This colour is highly versatile and has the ability to make any space look positively stunning.
4. Ruby red placemats
Since red is one of the boldest colours on the palate, there are also various shades of it ranging from watermelon to blood red and everything in between. Using it in a balanced proportion is the best way. This is why the place mats on this beautiful contemporary dining table set look positively gorgeous!
Cerulean is a beautiful shade of blue that stands out best when used amidst lighter hues. It looks gorgeous against a white backdrop, which is why the designers have artfully emulated it in this modernistic study room.
