Colours have special properties, influence human psyche in various ways and stimulate various emotional states. Each color causes a different perception of space.
Cold colours optically enlarge it and have a positive effect on the impression of spaciousness. In contrast, warm colours such as yellow, orange, pink or red reduce space.
Bright, cold and low saturation colours have a soothing effect on the mood and, at the same time, give the impression of freshness, matching all kinds and character of interiors. Dark colours should be used in moderation, they are perfect for contrasting colour accents, thanks to which they enliven and enrich the interior rather than overwhelm it, causing a grim impression.
While creating colour compositions in rooms, it is worth taking care of harmonious colour combinations. We especially recommend monochromatic combinations, i.e. one colour in different shades of brightness, e.g. light and dark green. Another good way to choose colours is to pair them in the same way. Colours are based on the same key and their selection is made by selecting the colours adjacent to each other on the color wheel.
Based on the circle of colours, it is also possible to select colours which complement each other, means which are located on opposite sides of the circle. Warm colours are complemented by cold, cold, warm colours. Colour combinations based on contradictions create harmonious pairs.
