Most homeowners are suggested to pick only one or two color schemes while designing the interiors of their homes. While it’s true that it’s easier to work with a minimal color palate, you can definitely work with three if it suits your fancy!
But here’s the thing; working with more than 2 colors can be extremely challenging. You just juggle the right surfaces and balance out the right shades of each color to get the perfect results. Let’s take a look at how you can successfully work with 3 color-schemes in your home interiors!
1. Orange, cream and beige
The first rule about choosing a 3-tiered color scheme is that you need to be especially careful about balancing the visual weight of all the hues you choose! For example, in this orange, cream and beige theme living room, the beige and cream colors have a very light, reflective visual effect, but it’s the orange that provides a dash of color in the mix.
2. Purple, orange and greens
If you’re a fan of bold, striking, vivacious colors, then this tip is definitely going to come in handy. The thing about choosing multiple bold colors for your color scheme is that you need a nice, clean backdrop to make them pop! So as you can see in this image, the designers have used the orange, purple and green colors against a clear, clean and sleek backdrop of white, which makes the peppiness of these colors stand out so much more!
3. Contrasting by default
When you’re using too many colors alternatingly on large surfaces like entire walls, you need to create a nice contrast to break monotony. This contrast can be added in the form of artwork or photographs or picture frames or even shelving units. All you have to do is make sure that anything you choose does not blend in with the rest of your color scheme and stands out on its own.
4. Mixing textures
Another thumb rule that you need to remember when you’re using a number of colors in a single space is that you need texture! Using surfaces with interesting textures can add a nice visual touch to the whole setting. However, don’t make all the surfaces textured – just one or two can do the trick. The kitchen in this image is a great example – the blood red of the under-cabinets contrasts nicely with the texture of the backsplash and the simple white of the over-cabinets.
5.When you want an open choice
This bedroom features one of the most subtle multi-colored themed you’ll ever see, but the best part about its design is that it offers you an infinite choice. while the wardrobes and the bed are pretty permanent in their chosen color schemes, the bedcovers provide a nice canvas for you to keep experimenting with other suitable colors for as long as you wish!
