Have you ever been confused, wondering about the colors that best suits you and your home?
Have you ever wondered about the effects of color on your surrounding environment and how to use it?
In this case study, we will describe a bedroom in a couple’s home that was finished as the following:
- The walls are divided into 3 parts: the first has a wooden texture with a walnut color finish; the second is black Spanish marble type with white veins; and the last part is painted light green with a touch of grey.
- Floors are HDF dark brown color.
- The false ceiling is painted white.
As we can see, the main colors used in the bedroom are: brown, black, green, and white. This limits the selection of the color of the main element of the room (which is the bed), so we picked 3 options to achieve balance in the space:
- Option 1: Blue
- Option 2: Light beige
- Option 3: Light green or mint.
These selected colors are characterized by light sensual density to achieve a balance between the existing materials in the room that are already characterized by the high sensual density.
In addition to achieving balance in the room,
we also want to achieve a sense of calmness, relaxation, and harmony;
this is inspired by the colors of nature which add softness, serenity, and clearness.
Blue is the color of the sea and the sky, light beige (that is more like off-white) is the color of raw cotton, and green is the color of the trees and grass.
We chose the fabrics to have a soft texture like cotton for the bed cover and used the velvet fabric for the headboard.
The selected light fixtures are circular with crystals that add lovely reflections, and the rugs contain gradients of the selected colors in addition to the beige color.
The main artwork in the room has roses that add more softness.
With the above description, we analyze the selection of the interior design elements based on the existing finishes to achieve balance, variety, calmness, and serenity which is required in the bedroom.
The above analysis is done in collaboration with Nancy El Banany, Color Psychology Specialist who shows the impact of colors on the selection of interior elements.
