Color combinations (a part 2)

  • Colour bezh also is a fine background. It can be combined with brown, dark red, green. At wall-paper or a colour upholstery bezh bright stains in the form of a pillow, a rug, a ceramic vase, colours are by all means necessary.

    It is necessary to remember that warm colours - red, orange, yellow - are strongly allocated, as though approaching subjects, and cold - dark blue, blue - on the contrary, postpone subjects and besides strongly absorb light. Green and violet tone are intermediate: some concern to warm, some - to cold. Bright shades of primary colours very sharp and to use them it is necessary cautiously, softening with addition of other colours in those combinations which we recommended in the section beginning.

    Selection of colour scale of conditions can be begun with any thing available for you, for example, from a sofa, the armchairs upholstered with a good fabric which you are not going to change, from a carpet or curtains. In any combination of colours one colour should prevail, that is this colour will occupy the greatest surface. Prevailing colour to a room is given by colouring of walls, more often. Colours of an upholstery of furniture, curtains, a carpet will be secondary in a combination and will occupy already smaller area. At last, the third colour will play an auxiliary role, connecting two cores. Vases can be auxiliary, binding subjects on colour in a room divannye pillows.

    To a monophonic combination of colours it is good to add bright, decorating and recovering stains of in harmony colour which can occupy very small space. As such stains the armchair upholstery, a cloth, napkins can serve.

    There are some rules which will help you at selection of a harmonious combination of colours (table)

    First of all it is necessary to remember that all colours at a daylight look differently, than at artificial; therefore, buying wall-paper, an upholstery, do not forget to look, as they look at electric illumination. Check up not only each colour, but also its combination to other colours at day and artificial light.

    If you need to enter any bright tone into a combination of colours, it is better to repeat it 2 - 3 times in the form of several small subjects: pillows, flower vases, - to use in the form of small stains in a pattern of a carpet, fabrics.

    It is not recommended to take one warm or one cold tone; even at their big variety it is necessary to shade by all means prevailing colour another, sharply different: cold warm and on the contrary.

    The Same colour has set of shades - from the most light to the most dark. But both light, and dark shades of the same colour cannot use absolutely equally for all parts of a room and any subject of conditions. The shade which suits colouring of walls, - will appear too light for a carpet; bright, light tone, beautiful for an upholstery of furniture or curtains, will look bad on walls.

    Each of us can have a favourite colour. But not always these can be guided at selection of colour or for a combination of colours: for example, as though you loved lilac or blue colour, you will not paint in it a room wall if it leaves on the north.

    As the Main ornament of a room colour or a combination of in harmony colours serve. The monophonic scale of many shades of any colour can be a successful combination, but pick up it difficultly enough. Therefore it is better to choose for colouring of walls light tone, smooth monophonic wall-paper, and an upholstery of furniture, curtains to choose brighter.

    In apartment furniture especially the great value gets a parity of colour of walls and a floor and colour of furniture, is decorative-furniture fabrics and carpets. These are the largest and most active carriers of colour. Having found a correct colour score of the basic components of a room, it is much easier to solve questions on colour of all other smaller household subjects: ware, a sculpture, vases, etc.
