Interior / June 9, 2018 / Addisyn Storey.
It never goes out of style. The classic color combination in interiors can be similarly dressed up or down. In the living room, used a decidedly denimlike shade of blue grasscloth on the walls to add color and texture, which helps the silhouettes of the white accessories and the wingback chairs really pop. The overall effect is polished yet casual.
Link red to passion because red is the color we exhibit on our skin when interested, a red flush or blush. Rather than having your outfit scream kitten, unless that is what you are going for, the best way to rock this passion producing color and get into a frame of mind is by carrying a red clutch, donning a bright red polish on your nails, try Essie Well Red, or lining your lips in the right red.
Think about it, if everything is too similar, our eyes have trouble focusing and tend to glaze over. Use texture to make sure your most important elements pop. Restraint, of course, is also key, so try not to go too texture crazy. Stick to two or three distinct textures in any single space. Choose three when you want people to take in the space as a whole and stick to two when you want to emphasize a prominent focal point.
You should also consider the placement of textures as you go about designing your room. Putting a smooth texture directly next to a rough one while make the rough object stand out more and seem weightier than if you space them apart. Use distance to determine how subtle of a visual weight you would like to achieve. We have said it before and we will say it again, contrast is essential when essential when it comes to design because it keeps things balanced and also provides visual interest.
