If you’re one of those people who love the dreamy, whimsical quality of a soft color scheme then we’re here to tell you that you’re on the right track. Last year, it was the blush pink phenomenon, which later transitioned into the lavender hued brigade, but these days we have so many new soft hues to add to the mix. However too many soft colors in a single space can end up looking boring. So today, we’ll be sharing a few tips on how you can glamorize your soft color scheme.
1. Lines and geometry
The soft color scheme that you use in your homes is definitely on the lighter end of the spectrum, which means that you need to imbue it with a lot of personality for it to truly shine. The best way to do that is by introducing some linear geometry within the whole design. This can be done in the form of grooves on the woodwork or some other furniture or shelf design hack that you can think of.
2. Ceiling lights and recessed coves
Artificial lights are the best because you can design their formation in a number of interesting ways to set off your soft color scheme. This image shows a great example of this technique, where the powder blue of the sofa is highlighted by the carefully installed cove lights and LEDs in the media wall and ceiling respectively! They add a dim, incandescent contrast to the whole setting!
3. A dash of contrast
Neutral colors are some of the trendiest forms of soft hues you’ll come across and the best way to keep them from being boring is by adding the most subtle form of contrast possible. This can be in the form of spot lighting or you can use small planters with fresh green foliage to create a visual asymmetry within your space.
4. Natural backlighting
Natural backlighting tends to bring out the best of all sorts of colors, but it has an even greater impact on soft hues. The best way to make your home interior designs stand out with soft colors is to create a nice, backlit natural lighting effect. This can be done with the help of gauzy white curtains that filter in the natural light and complement the softer hues of the interior.
5. Texture intervention
Sometimes, it’s best to use a little bit of texture intervention to make the whole space pop! This image shows the perfect example of this technique. The herringbone inspired built in shelf features light wooden texture that complements the soft blue color of the sofa in a clever and incredibly attractive manner!
