Cool Color Options For Your Space
Come home to a soothing haven and forget about the summer heat
Summer is almost over but it’s not getting any cooler. Since we all want to be welcomed by a refreshing space where we can relax and chill, you may want to consider giving the home a color makeover. Here are some color suggestions that can help transform your space into a cool and inviting abode:
Shades of Blue
Blues are known to lower heart rate and blood pressure as well as to create an atmosphere for meditation.
Opting for lighter shades of blue can help enlarge a space as well as cool down an area that's exposed to sunlight. If you're not yet ready to paint the walls in this color, you can experiment with blue accents and accessories that lend a calming vibe to a space.
Neutral shades like brown and taupe can help you achieve a comfortable and laid-back vibe.
As neutral colors are commonly associated with nature, these shades are pleasant and can add depth to your interior, too. Choose light shades like wheat, sand, or beige to open up your space and make it seem airy.
In the psychology of color, green is considered as a calm and relaxing hue. You may use this color on your walls, however, if you're on a budget, you can display indoor plants instead. Your chosen potted plants can be the focal point of your decor.
Plants are known to improve air circulation at home as well as lower the temperature indoors.
While we associate white with a lot of things, we're sure many of you will agree when we say that it can easily remind us of purity and a different level of tranquility.
An all-white interior may look too clinical—consider showcasing this non-color through pillows, draped curtains, and other textured decor pieces. You can also pair it with other hues to keep it from being boring.
Warm hues like red, orange, and yellow can be mixed with cool shades like blue and green to create an airy vibe in your space.
Showcase your chosen complementing colors through accessories like wall hanging, pillow covers, and small vases to make the space cheery yet relaxing.
