Have you ever wondered why some living rooms look comfortable and inviting while others seem to fall flat, or simply look unfinished? I’ll let you in on a design secret: it’s the colors. Adding harmonious shades to your color scheme not only adds variety and depth, but feelings of calm and tranquility. They are the colors that can take your living room from “okay” to “fabulous”!
But what are harmonious colors? They can be different tones and shades of the same color, known as a monochromatic color scheme. Many people think that only black, gray, and white are monochromatic, but in truth, any color can be used in a monochromatic color palette. Analogous color is another type of harmonious color combination. These are colors which are next to each other on the color wheel. Some examples are blue and green, red and orange, and purple and blue.
Finding harmonious colors may seem complicated, but it’s actually easier than it sounds. These eleven gorgeous living rooms and accompanying harmonious color palettes will show you how to make your living room cozy and comfortable by incorporating different tones and shades of the same color hue.
Here are some unique color combinations that will help your space really stand out. Visit us at Louis valentino for the best of furniture, wallpapers, bedroom sets and tiles that give life to your homes or call us on 08175554806 today.
For decades humans have been mixing and baking the combination of sand, clay and water to create a flat surface to protect their feet and homes from the elements and time has given us endless inspiration for incorporating tile into our interiors. Who says tile should be banished to the bathroom? Take it out of hiding and let different surfaces throughout your house become the focal point. Read on for some inspiration to create a masterpiece (or two) in your own home.
Whether your style is modern, coastal, bohemian or traditional, there are thousands of tiles out there that will suit your aesthetic. It’s a great way to create visual interest when there is a lack of interesting architecture. Using interesting tile on the wall is a practical alternative to wallpaper, especially where wallpaper runs the risk of peeling because of the high levels of humidity, or if you’re looking for something that can stand up to scuffing.
In the bathroom, you have the opportunity to tile the entire room. We love the idea of using a different kind of tile on the walls than you have on the floor. The contrast created from using an array of colors, styles and sizes will create a walk-in jewel box that will add a punch of excitement to your morning ritual. You also can use tile to create designated spaces within large rooms in the form of a tile “rug” within the floor design. Whether it’s a welcoming pattern in the foyer that leads your guests down the hall or the look of a rug in front of your tub, using carefully chosen tile that accents the rest of your flooring is a sophisticated move.
That’s why we’re offering you quality porcelain and ceramic tiles at basically half the price.
