Few of us can unequivocally answer the simple question: “what is your favorite color?”
And only about a certain shade and there can be a long conversation at all. But if the green blouse can be hidden deeper into the cupboard, and the bright orange lipstick is simply discarded, then with the color scheme of the interior everything is much more complicated. Therefore, the choice of shades should be approached thoroughly and, most importantly, individually. Today we will tell you about three interesting approaches that will allow you to determine exactly which color you like.
Associative thinking and intuitive attraction
A big mistake is to choose a shade by looking at the palette. And a big mistake if you do it right in the salon or accompanied by the designer. Of course, a professional can tell you how a particular color will emphasize the merits of your layout, but you will have to live in the created atmosphere to you, so you must be sure of all 100 that the color scheme corresponds to your temperament, character and aesthetic preferences. To do this, direct your eyes, first of all, inside yourself. Remember what colors prevailed in the interiors, which you remember with warmth, what shades you intuitively attracts. This, at least, will help you narrow the search to a certain color, and then, with the help of specialists, select its shade in the place and circumstances.
Your character and character of the interior
The color scheme of the interior largely determines its character. And it must match yours. Otherwise, after a while, you will realize that this is “not yours,” even if all the shades are carefully and meticulously chosen. In order not to be in a similar situation, experts recommend in advance to imagine what the atmosphere in the room should be. If you are a calm person by nature and like coziness, choose warm, soft shades. If you want to create an interior that charges energy – combine bright, juicy tones. In a word, create a palette for your life, and do not copy pictures from glossy magazines.
Trust … your wardrobe
However strange it may sound, it is your wardrobe that will best tell you which of the shades you prefer most. And even more! Looking at your favorite things, you will see what combinations you like to use in everyday life. Favorite accessories will also help you. Let’s say. If you like large gold jewelry, then the decor of this kind will be relevant in your new interior.
… And a few more tips on the topic
Having decided with this or that shade, having defined it on a palette or on a picture in the tablet (a smart phone, a laptop, etc.), do not hurry to stop unequivocally on one sampler of a paint. It is better to take a few similar shades and “try them on” to your walls in any convenient way, whether it’s test smears on a barely visible area or applying probes. Thus, you can understand whether this tone is going to your interior. Also, one should not forget that the same color in gloss and in the form of a matte coating looks different, therefore, the interior can be completely transformed from the one you prefer.
