Life Without Colors Is Too Boring

Imagine a world without color. Everything would be in monochrome. The feeling would be equivalent to living in a black and white television. There would be not much variation and everything would be of the same shades, black and white. That would be so gray, sad and gloomy. Therefore, I strongly agree that without color, the world would indeed be a boring place to exist. Colors make nature, fashion, flags and the various races much more interesting and diverse.

Besides, colors make a clear role in design, that’s why architects and specially interior designers should pay attention to them in order to create  great spaces.

Color is an international visual language understood by all so when you’re trying to communicate or transmit something through interior design, there’s no better way to do it than through color. In order to do that, you need to understand how colors behave, how they change their character and how they influence our mood.

All colors change their character when lightness and saturation are modified so it’s not enough to pick a color for a certain interior design element because you also need to pick a shade. Light colors are airy and, as a general rule, they make rooms feel larger and brighter. Dark colors are sophisticated and warm and they make rooms feel intimate.Colors basically behave in three ways. They can be active, passive or neutral. Neutrals include black, gray, white and brown and these colors are often used to establish balance in a decor that includes both active and passive shades.

The colors you use in your interior design and decor have an impact on the atmosphere you create and you need to correctly assess what this ambiance should be before you choose the colors. A bedroom, for example, needs to be calming and relaxing. A living room has to be exciting and energizing and so on.
