The Psychology of Colors Are you one of those people afraid of adding color to your home? Or one of those people who just don't know what colors to put in which rooms? Here are some really useful tips you can consider when decorating your interiors, and even if you've already finished your decorating, it's never too late to do some repainting! 1.The 60-30-10 Rule If you take a look at some rooms in brochures or magazines, you will notice that the best designs are divided into percentages of 60-30-10. Many interior designers say that 60% of a room should be in one dominant color, 30% should


have another secondary color, and 10% that provides a small addition of a third basic color. An easy way to imagine this is to think of a man's business suit – 60% of the color is in his trousers and jacket, 30% is his shirt, and 10% is in the tie. So in a room, 60% is usually in the walls, 30% in furniture, and 10% in one or two important decorative pieces, or could also just be in any indoor plants or floral arrangements. 2.Consider the Color Wheel If you've never heard of the Color Wheel, it is a brilliant 'map' of colors that Sir Isaac Newton created in 1666, and ever since artists and designers all over the world

w w w. e d a r s e a v i e w. c o m

have used it to show the components of color and its physical and psychological effects on people; and it is NEVER wrong! The colors across from each other, like red and green, blue and orange, purple and yellow, are called Complementary Colors. Rooms decorated in a complementary color scheme create a very visual and vibrant atmosphere, and should be often used in more formal areas in your house like the dining room or the reception area. The colors that are next to each other, like yellow and green, purple and pink, red and orange, are called Analogous Colors, and they

create a peaceful, quiet, and restful atmosphere. The Analogous Color Scheme should therefore be used in the more casual areas of your house, like bedrooms and the living room. 3.Follow Nature's Advice If you're not a big fan of too many colors, then you could always just play-it-safe and take Mother Nature's advice. All you need to do is design your interior spaces by replicating the colors you see in the outside world. So play around with the basic natural colors of Brown, Green, Blue, White, Yellow, with all their lighter and darker shades. And to choose the brightness of your colors, again follow nature's rules: put the darker colors for your floors (like the ground), mediumbrightness of colors for the walls (like the trees or mountains), and very light colors for your ceilings (like the sky). 4. Follow your Emotions What type of mood do you want to be in when you're sitting at home? Or how about having different moods for each room? Yellow: Cheerful and highenergy. But don't use too much of it.

Orange: Also cheerful and fun, but much warmer and calmer. Green: Natural, healthy, relaxing, peaceful. Blue: Studies have shown that it is the most popular color people choose worldwide. This is because it makes the body produce chemicals which calm the nerves. You can never go wrong with blue. Purple or Violet: Rich, elegant, sophisticated. Red: The color which is most recognized by our eyes, and has proven to increase people's heart beats. It creates a very active, excited, and energetic mood. Of course it's a very romantic color as well.

color. It represents purity and simplicity. Black: Represents power, mystery, and elegance. But if used too much, it will create a depressing atmosphere instead. So always combine it with another strong contrasting color, and stay away from the walls. Use black in your furniture or the floor, but never the walls or ceilings. Grey: A very practical color, which adds a nice elegant touch when combined with other colors. Never have grey on its own; you can use it on walls and floors but add lots of excitement with bright colorful touches.

Pink: very feminine and sweet, but when combined with darker masculine colors like navy blue or black, it takes away the feminine look and turns into a gender-neutral space with a touch of beauty. B r o w n : Ve r y e a r t h y, natural, rich and classic. White: It is the safest option, but could always be combined with ANY other

Classic CLASSIC When you start decorating your house, the first thing you would probably think of is whether you want to decorate your interiors using a classic or a modern style. Today there are more styles that designers have created for us to choose from,




however the modern vs. classic dilemma is the most common one. So, if you haven't decided yet, here's what you need to know and consider when choosing between these two famous styles: w w w. e d a r s e a v i e w. c o m


Classic Style: Classic-style interiors are easy to point out; when you walk through it, you feel like you've entered a house that existed in a different time period. It is based on symmetry, balance, and elegance, and was originally

designed based on the standards of the old Roman and Greek empires. Balance is a very important factor; for example a fireplace in the reception must be combined with matching armchairs on each side with an elaborate mirror or painting above. As for colors, they range from rich mid-tones that are often inspired by nature's colors. These include the soft and calm shades of yellows, greens, browns, and grays, as well as rich gold and bronze, and only off-white should be used if desired, but never pure white. In fact, an easy rule to remember is to never use pure bright colors, only the soft midtones and shades. Fabrics are very widely used in the classic style, used in the furniture itself, in decorative pieces or canvases hung on the walls, and in the curtains. They are characterized by rich details and elegant sophisticated materials and colors, but shouldn't be overly attention-grabbing. Furniture is of course inclined towards the antique style and should have the finest elegant materials and designs. Usually they are custom-made by a professional designer and carpenter, and not readymade in furniture stores as they would be hard to find these days. Finally, the flooring is also supposed to be natural; fine wood, stone, or marble work best for a classically designed environment.

Modern or Contemporary Style: The modern style is very simple, clear-cut, cleanlined, focused, bright, and made up of basic geometric shapes. The modern style hates and completely avoids anything complex or sophisticated, or any decorative elements and accessories that are seen in other styles. When you walk into a modern interior, u might feel too cold or even depressed, but when designed and planned

properly the modern style g i v e s o ff a s e n s e o f calmness and simplicity, completely opposite to the feeling you get in a classic home. Bold, bright, pure colors are the basis of any modernized home. There are almost no limits or rules; if you want a crazy bright yellow integrated with a florescent green, go for it! Or some bright pink furniture with plain black floors, why not? As long as they're bold, bright, and polished, and your choice of colors are symmetrical throughout the room. This is probably the best thing about modern w w w. e d a r s e a v i e w. c o m

style interiors, you're actually allowed to use your favorite colors, and can go as wild as you want! Another great benefit from the modern style is that it usually maximizes space and creates an impression that a room or area in your house is larger than it actually is. Also, it is common to have large windows (accompanied with very simple curtains) all over your house, which is another element that makes a room look larger, and it is because the modernized house loves a lot of light. Finally, the furniture, is usually short (lower to the ground) and small-sized with straight legs and comes in clear-cut shapes (mostly squares, rectangles, and circles). Artwork or accessories aren't many, but when included they must be very simple, matching the room's vibrant colors, and should be made up of graphical shapes as well.
