There is no way out. The bright colors are there – and it looks like they are here to stay. That said, these nuances can be tricky to manage when it comes to setting up a design. That’s where we come in. We have listed our best tips and tricks for managing strong shades in all interiors. Read below to find out how to make these trendy hues at home.
Consider the scale
Pay attention to proportions and scale is an important factor in the design of any room, but it becomes particularly crucial when using bold hues. This is because, in this case, it is possible to have too much of a good thing. If you use too much of an attractive color in your design, you may feel overwhelmed rather than a fashionable statement of style.
Fortunately, there is a simple rule to follow. If you work with a small space, opt for an accent wall covering the entire room in one shade. It’s the same for very large spaces, where there are a lot of walls to cover. Medium-sized rooms can handle a large amount of color. Do not hesitate to cover the four walls.
Bring accent colors
Bright colors work best when they have something to play. No color palette with saturated hues would be complete without one or two complementary hues of the color wheel. Using too much of a color, especially when it comes to a strong hue, can seem overwhelming. Adding accent colors is a way to break the room a bit while adding visual interest.
When choosing colors, it is important to keep in mind the 60/30/10 rule. In this case, you choose a color – usually the most neutral shade – to make it the dominant color and cover 60% of the piece. Then you have your secondary color, a slightly bolder shade, which covers about 30% of the room. Finally, your accent color, which is your most attractive shade, should be the remaining 10% of the piece.
