How to choose color scheme for interiors

Monochromatic combination involves choosing a particular color as the base color and then, based on the base color to choose colors in the same range more intense, more softer, ie adding whiter, black or the three primary colors, red blue and green. In this case, the range is monochromatic primary color, to which we added yellow, black and white.


An example would be: Suppose we have chosen furniture with medium tone woods and want to choose colors that complement our furniture.All the middle shows the color of the wood and the adjacent stripes show different colors in the same range monochrome. You can choose the color amber or beige for the walls, as the chocolate brown is a very smart choice for sofas, chairs and occasional furniture and can adapt to greenish brown cushions and accessories.
Another example of monochromatic range, in this case taking into account the color of the floor (floor). As we have chosen the wood in the example above and many houses have wooden floors or that mimic wood, look for a monochromatic range for a ceramic floor.

In the central strip you’ll see the color of the floor and stretches around you are in the same range monochrome. The brown can serve to choose the color of the wood tones of the furniture and creams can be a good choice for sofas or walls.

In this interior color scheme has opted for a monochromatic range, mixing with whites. The monochrome combinations are great for bedrooms, bathrooms, kitchens and babies rooms. Depending on the base color you choose, ie warm or cool colors, the effect can invite relaxation, can be more energy, make our room look brighter or reduce excess light.

For the combination of a range not too oppressive monochrome or on the contrary, too flat, two combinations can be selected. In the picture below you will see that the bedroom is decorated with a monochromatic range and a range of complementary colors because they do not receive sufficient illumination and blue tends to bring darkness. Thus, white ceilings, baseboards, wood shelving and cream tones bring light carpet.

Indoor Color Scheme: analogous color scheme
When choosing the color scheme for interiors also want something that is not a dull moment since, as mentioned, a range can be bland monochromatic. In the picture above we have seen a monochromatic range mixed with a range of complementary colors.
Another technique is to use analogous colors. How is this based? It consists of choosing a main color and then mix this color with other colors in the color wheel adjacent, with different nuances.
As a first example, we will choose the wood again, this time live in another tone.

As you can see, the color range is much wider. The range of browns, orange, amber, ocher, cream, maroon, pink … You can paint the walls in amber or ocher or if you want to stay warmer orange choose. Cream and brown colors are perfect for sofas and armchairs, with a touch of color with the pink, you can also apply to curtains.
Let us take as an example the color of the walls. Imagine you have chosen a particular color, you’re tired of the decor and want to find a combination of different interior colors, so that you propose to change the furniture.

We have multiple colors to play with and create an attractive combination of colors for interiors. The pink and purple colors may be perfect for bedding (duvet, bedspreads), brown tones, creams, beige and burgundy can apply to sofas and armchairs. As for the pink gray and bluish gray are perfect for comfortable or cupboards.
