Warm colours have a very calming effect on a space and person using it. These colours are also very sensible and appealing – and often on the earthy side. This is why they can seem overwhelming when used in a large amount. To avoid using them haphazardly – or worse: in a totally typical way – here are 5 tips to emulate them in an innovative way in your home:
1. Accompanying interesting textures
The best way to emulate warm colours in your homes is by accompanying them with other textures – preferably cool ones. A good example of this is featured in this image. The media wall made from warm woods has been complemented with the cool marble and classy concrete laminates. Both of them balance out the warmth of the wood to deliver a classy effect.
2. Chrome and shine
If your warm textures run the gamut of light shades then you can introduce them in this classy way. As you can see in this image, the silver texture of the headboard coupled with the chrome of the sliding door in the backdrop add much more dimension to the whole setting. You can use a similar technique to make your warm colours look sophisticated in a totally unconventional way.
3. Ramp up the lighting
If you don’t want to be too conventional with emulating warm colours in your home interiors, you can simply compensate by ramping up the warm lighting. There are tons of ways you can do so. Just take a look at this image; the chandelier hung from the ceiling emitting a warm incandescent glow is a great example. Similarly, the recessed lights running along the carpentry top are also a great way to get similar effects.
4. Alternating between dark and light warm hues
Another innovative way to emulate warm Colours in your home interiors is by creating contrast between the lighter and darker shades. This image shows a great example of this technique. Here, the media wall and other dark wooden textured elements are used to create a beautiful contrast with the lighter walls, while the lighting complements it all.
5. Use your furniture
Lastly, you can use your furniture to create a gorgeous texture contrast with the rest of the space. Even if the whole room is done in lighter hues of neutral, having dark coloured warm furniture accents can elevate the ambiance of the whole interior design.
