Painting is the most simple and affordable way to dramatically change a home looks like. The proper use of color can highlight an architectural detail like an alcove or a staircase, to draw attention to a favorite possession, and creating a feeling of space and inviting warmth. Why is the interior of the island, houses painted as white conservatives?
Sometimes it is due to a lack of understanding of how colors interact. For example, people often assume that a white wall is the best basis for paintings or sculptures, and it will not compete with the artwork. But it will not improve much. If you really want a painting (or textiles, or a good piece of furniture) to highlight, and at the same time give the room a sense of cohesion, select a color that is present in the artwork and to use this ( or go lighter tone) from the wall. If your house is decorated in neutral colors, paint the walls a color that contrasts the fat accentuate the furniture and give them the attention they deserve.
Another misconception: Dark colors are wrong because they are a smaller room. In fact, a rich dark color can make a room look dynamic. You can give warmth to the kitchen of a house ultramodern otherwise austere. If you have a home theater, the darker is not only better for the screen, but you can make the room more cozy and inviting.
Color also helps to define living areas, especially when a home has an open floor plan. I typically recommend using three or four colors in a given space, basing the selection on the client’s palette preferences, the colors present in finishes and furnishings, and the architectural details of the space.
