Singaporeans in general are a conservative lot when it comes to colours. Prone to stick to safer shades of white or neutral tones, local homeowners miss out on the design opportunities that using colours and prints on walls can bring to a space. Once and for all, we put to rest the fallacy that colours and small spaces conflict each other. Here are some sure-fire ways to beautify, as well as enlarge your home sweet home to full effect. What’s more, you don’t have to break the bank to accomplish this!
Many have heard of certain colour rules pertaining to house décor. Top of the list is how warm colours advance whereas cool colours recede. (For the uninitiated, the former category includes colours like red, orange and yellow while the latter category includes colours like blue, green and purple.) Admittedly, there is some truth in this but it merely represents a tendency, not an absolute. However well-intentioned the guideline is, nevertheless, you can still afford to bend this colour rule and outshine those who abide by it in the strictest sense.
1. Bust this inhibiting myth and take a leap of faith by choosing sharp, bold colours like energizing yellow or saturated orange to jazz up active, busy rooms.
2. Feel apprehensive about bright colours? Well, you don’t have to flush intense colours on all walls. Bring it down to just two, opposite sides in a room. When combined with wide spaces in between, clarity is enhanced and thus, creates an illusion of depth. If that’s still too much for you, try it on one wall.
3. For a pretty effect, you can inject colours and design at the same time without overwhelming the space. To up the style ante, use blossoming floral wallpaper and pair it with a neighbouring wall in the same shade, Wallpower wall covering from Goodrich Global is a whimsical option to adorn your walls with.
