‘Sepia’ is not the first choice of color when it comes to selecting your interior design color scheme. Most people go for the conventional two-part high contrast scheme that can end up either very bold, sophisticated or even boring on some occasions. However, sepia is a color that can definitely make your space seem artfully dated, nostalgic and contemporary at the same time. Let’s take a look at 5 interior designs that have been done up in the sepia scheme.
1. A touch of metal
You can use a contemporary material palate in order to make your sepia color scheme more interesting. For example, the metallic touch in the media wall of this interior design completely contradicts the otherwise conventional material palate of the rest of the interior. This creative juxtaposition is a great way to make the best of the sepia color scheme.
2. Accents of lighting
Sepia is a color that can be enhanced or denounced depending on the lighting accents in your space. This image shows a space that has been fully highlighted by the use of some brilliant lighting accents. From the tiny LEDs that makes up the ambiance to the pendent lights that provide focused lighting, the entire ambiance is to die for!
3. A little bit of contrast
You’re probably going to need a little bit contrast to make your glamorous sepia color scheme more interesting. Black is the perfect color to do so. You can hit the right ambient pitch by using small amounts of black accents and dim gold lighting. Together, this combination can make your space look absolutely amazing!
4. The same tone effect
You can use hues and tints of sepia to create interesting dimensions in your space. The floor can be a darker hue while the wall and ceiling finishes can be decidedly lighter. This can help you create a more layered effect that is essentially going to help make your space look infinitely better and mesmerizing.
5. When texture comes
When you mix and match your sepia color scheme with a bit of texture, you can imbue a whole lot of glamour in your interior design. You can use light texturing in the form of wall papers, contrasting textures in the form of area rugs, or even lighting textures in the form of accent lights to fully accomplish this technique.
