Infuse your home with cool sophistication
by choosing a color scheme from the cool side of the color wheel. The cool side of the color
wheel imparts its serene calmness in the room. It spans from peppy green, to rego purple.
In this example, a living room is decorated in shades of green and blue. When choosing
colors, choose one hue to be the star for cohesiveness. Here, a Caribbean blue colors
the walls and appears in variations on pillows and in the striped rug. Take the chill off
of cool colors by incorporating a cool color with warm undertones. A yellow-based green
lends that warmth on the ottoman and striped pillow in this living room. Use white as a
crisp counterpoint to cool hues. A white lamp table and sofa create a kickback cottage or
beach style mood. White sheers on the windows, surface a smooth transition between the bright
sunlight and a cool interior. White blinds keep the look light but it can also be lowered
for privacy. Patterns will help you carry a color scheme in a room. The floral print
on the armchair showcases all the use of the color scheme, plus a bit of yellow for warmth.
Play with different combinations of colors from the cool side of the color wheel to create
a room that imparts a calm vibe. Mix in a crisp neutral and a few hands of warm views
and you’ll create the perfect cool color scheme that will work in any room.
