Color and Lighting: the Pepper and Salt of your interior design recipe
< p>Two of the most important elements to create the interior of your dream house are Lighting and Color. All the showpieces, centerpieces, chandeliers, and elegant pieces of furniture can lose their charm if the lighting and the colors are not rightly chosen. Choosing the right color schemes for your house is very important and to complement the shades you have to decide what sort of lighting you will go for. Together, these two can make or break the interior of your dream house.
So how to choose the right colors and how to decide what sort of lighting will go well with it?
Let's talk about the Light
Just by the intensity of the light in your house, you can set the mood. A very well-lit room or a space will make you attentive and awake.
This is perfect for your kitchen, workplace, and your children's study or play room. In your kitchen, having proper lighting is important to insert what you are cooking and at what stage they are at. In your workplace and in a room where your kids' study or play, you must have bright light to stay attentive and maintain your concentration.
Natural lighting through the windows can also be very helpful and mood-lifting. If you have an open terrace or a small balcony, set up a couple of chairs to enjoy your morning or evening tea.
Your living room is where you would hang out with your loved ones, and watch your favorite shows and films. This is where you need to create a relaxing ambiance. Having warm lighting creates a perfect ambiance for your leisure time with your loved ones. If possible have multiple sets of warm lighting with different brightness.
Now, what about the colors? Don't worry we have you covered.
Picking colors is extremely important and it's way more than just making your interior look extremely attractive. Different shades of colors bring different moods.
The most important thing you can do with color is to create a statement, by having an accent wall. Don't just paint your house with one or two colors. Go for an accent wall that will set the tone for your house to your guests.
You can also pick different shades of one color for all the walls in a room to avoid a somber feel. Other than solid colors, you can also go for printed walls for your living room, 3D walls for your kids' bedroom, and graphics for your study or living room.
For your kitchen, avoid having all white walls or even lighter shades as that will require high maintenance. Having a darker shade in the kitchen can be a good choice if you have proper lighting.
Color schemes can totally change the look of your home without even having to add any showpieces or decorative items.
