Choosing the right color palette for your interior can be difficult. How many colors can you use without it getting too much? And which shades match or don’t match? You can easily answer this last question yourself with the help of the color circle.
The rule is very simple: 60 percent consists of a dominant color (for example the walls), 30 percent a secondary color (think of the sofa) and the last 10 percent is used to unpack with an accent color (for example the cushions on the couch). That’s it.
Subtle touch of glamor
Do you want to go for a warm interior with a fresh undertone and elegant accents? Then take white as the dominant color for a light base, add a warm element with dark blue and style it with some (yellow) gold accessories.
With a chic hotel feel with a cool edge you quickly think of dark colors. With white as a basis, you still offer a fresh counterpart. Cognac is perfect as a secondary color, because it also closely matches wood tones. And with burgundy as the accent color, you can finish it off completely.
You do not necessarily have to work with contrast colors, but you can also choose shades that are all close together. This way you create an interior that exudes a lot of tranquility. In this case white has been chosen, which overflows into beige and ocher yellow accents.
Black and white
With a monochrome or black-and-white interior, you have already largely grasped the basics. Add some excitement with soft-colored pillows, subtle accessories or plants.
