Properly designed colors create a positive mood. It should also correspond to the intended purpose of the room. You need to know the basic concepts of how specifically the different colors are combined.
Key selection criteria
All colors in the room should be selected under the primary. It should be chosen first, after additional ones are thought out. The main color is the one that sets the predominant tone. Additional ones can be traced only in certain interior details and do not prevail over the main one. As a rule, additional shades should not be more than 3.
The next requirement to consider is full compliance with a particular style. All color schemes cannot be chosen randomly. They should be harmonious and fit into the interior of a particular room.
This is the most simple and practical approach. Only one color is taken and used in different shades. For example, if the main thing is white, then the sofa can be light blue, but not blue. If the main color is yellow, then in this case brown will serve as its dimming. This is a monochrome combination that looks harmonious.
It is worth noting that sharp color transitions are not welcome here, so some may find this approach boring. It is most practical to use in the hallway or hallway. But if you take a large number of shades, you can create an interesting design.
In this case, two colors are used that are contrasting with respect to each other. Eyes positively perceive this combination and it looks very harmonious.
To build a connection between contrasting colors, you can take shades from their mixture. For example, if you mix blue and orange, you get a dark brown, which will be an excellent connecting link and create the desired harmony in the room.
Using Related Colors
Apply up to 4 shades that are in close proximity to the color wheel. One shade should fulfill the dominant role, and the rest should complement it. For this role, two colors should not be used in equal proportions, as this will violate harmony. Of the four selected solutions, another one serves as a minor, and the other two are additional.
If you take the kitchen, then in this room I want to emphasize the feeling of cleanliness, and therefore it is often used white as the main one. It goes well with others and does not irritate the eye.
The most popular approach, although it is a complex selection scheme. The interior looks balanced and interesting. Three colors are taken that are equidistant on the color wheel. One of them necessarily dominates, and the rest are used minimally (to emphasize certain details).
Colors can also be mixed, but there are rules. In the first case, shades from the mixture between the primary and secondary colors are used. It is undesirable to mix only additional ones, since there will be no direct connection and emphasis on the main one, and this destroys harmony.
In the second case, you can mix additional colors, but the result then mix with the main. The resulting shade can be lightened or darkened as desired.
