Popping ‘n Lockin’ – A Dash of Playful Coloring in Interiors

An interior design is essentially a three dimensional manipulation of space. It entails meticulous positioning of all given objects inside that space, proper allocation of decoration pieces and careful application of materials and textures. Accordingly, you can achieve any theme that you want, given that you chose an appropriate material and color palate. It is important to create contrast in these spaces, in order for them to adhere to that concept of beautification. A simple space, without texture and contrast becomes drab and boring. If you like a style of interior that is just a little bit retro in scheme, and can pull off that Mid-Century vintage playfulness then you need a careful application of colors in your space – in materials, decorations, furniture or more. The trick is to create a balance – a metaphorical harmony – between the confines of the space and the objects that are used within.

Dissimilarity
whenever you’re deciding on a creative color scheme, make sure you consult a color wheel. It does not matter if you’re selecting a plethora of colors, or even two opposite schemes. As long as there is sufficient contrast between the two colors, your interior would be complementary. A very relevant example of such dissimilar disposition is in the image below, where red and yellow come together to create a playful, kittenish look. Note the visual weight of both of these colors – red is heavy enough to be used in careful moderation while yellow is used more freely all over the room. The trick to creating a perfect blend is having a neutral backdrop – white, in this case, which does not let the room seem garish or unsightly.

Fixtures

Most of the color palate is achieved through trimming and fixtures in any interior setting. Unless you’re going for a rich, baroque scheme, you need to play on the modern aspect of simplicity and carefully amalgamate it with a divergent, yet attractive color scheme. In this case, the apple green lamination complements, yet contradicts the trimming of the cabinet space and the design scheme of the lighting fixtures. The backdrop of white provides neutral ground for not only the overall space, but also against the brightness of this color scheme.

Earthy

When you’re working with an otherwise earthy color palate, there is always a danger of the space coming out either too industrial, or minimalistic. You can keep that sturdy sophistication while adding a slightly exuberant vibe into the mix by adding a single object or fixture with a lively color scheme. In this case, the blue of the carper brightens up the otherwise drab setting of this industrial style interior space.

Illumination

With the advent in modern technology, texture and material palates are not the only way you can add a dash of color to your interiors. When strobe lights become too flashy, it is time to go the way of the rope light. In the midst of an otherwise minimalistic interior, you can add a coltish scheme that would customize the space by attaching rope lights of various colors above and below inconspicuous spaces. Too much would take away the elegance of the space, while too little might seem unsatisfactory – it has to be the perfect blend. This way, the interior seems playful without being too flashy.
