Colors such as blue, green and violet can be classified within the list of cold colors based on the meanings and sciences of colors, while orange, red and yellow join the list of warm colors. Cool colors carry a calming effect on the mind and body, if studies show that exposure to these colors can help lower blood pressure and relax Muscles and slow breathing, so incorporating these colors into bedroom decor design is an ideal choice if you want to enjoy relaxation and calmness.

If you look at the cold colors, you will feel as if they are receding, which makes any space appear larger, unlike the warm colors that make the spaces smaller, so if you have a small room, designing it in light colors can help make it appear larger, on the other hand if you have A space that lacks natural sunlight, and you will feel a lot of cold in it if you add mainly cold colors to it.

There are no fixed rules in the world of decoration, but these general tips can help you add cool colors more effectively in your interior design:

Cool colors are calm and beautiful

1. Experiment with different shades

If you admire a color, then you may get excited about using it a lot, which leads to a boring and unsatisfactory final result in your home, so instead of adding a blue carpet that matches perfectly with the color of the walls of the room, use a blue-green carpet, to test lighter and darker shades of the same color to create a unique effect surrounds you.

2. Use complementary colors

According to the theory of color meanings, complementary colors mean those that are opposite each other on the color wheel, or in other words, every cool color has a warm complementary color, and the pairs of complementary colors on the color wheel are as follows:

  • blue and orange
  • purple and yellow
  • green and red

Color wheel: Note the position of complementary colors on the wheel

You can get a fun and aesthetic effect if you combine complementary colors in your home design scheme, and this can be especially effective if the overall color scheme is one tone with complementary accents!

For example, if you design your bedroom mainly using blue but add some orange touches, such as a rug or some pillows, orange can add some warmth and comfort to the space so that it does not become too cold. On the other hand, if you have A space designed in warm colors, such as the kitchen, you can add some touches of blue or green to add coolness to the space and renew it!

3. Combine neutral colors

Adding neutral colors such as gray, white, and beige does not make the space cool or warm on its own. Although it contains neutral colors, it provides a neutral space on which to build the design scheme.

For example, if you have white walls you can add bright blue or dark purple upholstered furniture to the space, or you can decorate the space with emerald green or blue pillows in the middle if you have beige furniture, neutral colors are relaxing and help make the colors brighter and vitality.

Mix cool colors with neutral tones for the perfect look

4. Add the smooth surfaces

Adding cold colors may make the house look stark or appear unwelcoming to visitors and guests, especially when you have a room that contains pieces of furniture with solid surfaces such as modern or industrial design - which is now spreading - then you can mitigate this effect while maintaining the color scheme Cool by adding a cool-colored rug or a neutral color.

It's a good way to add some warm texture to a space, and even if the overall color temperature is cool, wool rugs, tapestry, or certain fabrics can add some warmth to your space.

Cool colors and soft surfaces make the room feel warmer

5. Get inspired by nature

If adding colors and their complementary colors from the color wheel doesn't work for you, take inspiration from nature, which contains complementary color pairs that you may not have noticed before, for example lilac has light purple petals surrounding a yellow center, flowering holly has berries red vs green leaves. Also, if you watch the sunset, you will see warm colors mixing with cool colors such as red, purple, blue, or orange and turquoise.

Decorating in cool colors in the form of plants has a calming and natural effect

7. Reflect your personality and taste

Designing your interior is a form of self-expression. If you have a vibrant personality, then a cool color scheme will not be for you. However, if you are designing your interior with cool colors, you may want to choose bold and eye-catching colors such as aquamarine - a color A light of bright green - or - a deep amethyst, which is a violet hue -.

Whatever you choose to incorporate cool colors into your design, make sure you express yourself

Using color tones in designing your interior is fun, and you should ultimately choose those tones that suit your taste, and make you feel like you are in a welcoming and warm space.
