In this publication we will talk about ways to use the warm and cold colors for the interior decoration of the living room and the living room.
Colors have a power in themselves. They can be stimulating, relaxing or bring a happy atmosphere. Many people dream of being able to mobilize their potential in the decoration of their stay, but hesitate to embark on this enterprise which they consider too difficult. Think about it: the color you choose for the walls of your living room can affect the entire look of the room. The same goes for a single piece of furniture in lively and daring shades.
Hot and cold colors: why we hesitate to use them in the living room decoration
Given the expense of arranging the living room, we understand why the use of colors has become something of a threat: it is scary because it is thought that it can "ruin" all previous efforts. To avoid all these risks, most people decide to bet on neutral nuances, as everyone does. Let's see what are the essential principles to know to avoid sinking into the banal.
Hot and cold colors: a reminder of the basic definitions
Let's start with some definitions: what is a warm colour and a cold color? In the color wheel (also called "color wheel"), warm shades are on the left and cold - on the right. Yellow, orange and hues pastel are in the first category. Blue, the Grey and green belong to the second. There are also intermediate shades which are placed between these two groups and which may belong to one or the other depending on the dominant notes of which they are composed (for example: certain variants of green and lilac).

How to use this information for a successful living room decoration? If you like a particular color, whether hot or cold, you can use its nuances to decorate your stay. The combinations of shades of the same color can give very nice results, as can be seen in the picture above which represents a living room with shades of blue. Small advice for those who would like to achieve a similar effect in their interiors: combine the tones of the color of your choice with walls or furniture in neutral color, such as white, black and very light notes of gray, to bring more of balance in the interior space.

But how harmonize hues of the two groups, the cold and the hot? If you want to experiment to create a colorful living room, consider the possibility of playing on complementary nuances. This expression applies to pairs of shades that are opposed to each other in the color wheel, such as dark blue and orange or yellow. Together, these couples produce quite remarkable contrasts.

To obtain a balanced and pleasant interior, use the effects of these contrasts in moderation: for example, with a dominant color and accessories in complementary hues (cushions, decorative objects, decorative paintings).
