Choose The Right Colour Scheme Using The Nippon Paint Colour Chart

In designing, colour is a very important aspect. Different colours induce different effects on people. For example, the colour red has been shown to raise one’s blood pressure and encourages appetite. Blue induces a calming effect because it probably reminds people of the calm blue ocean. Yellow, on the other hand, increases energy and metabolism. There are a lot of ways colours and even combinations of colours affect people. Different reactions and emotions can be achieved using the slightest shades of colour in a room.

Understanding the theory of colours is essential in any designing project. And it is especially essential in the design of colours for one’s home. The colours of the walls and ceilings need to blend harmoniously with each other. These colours also need to blend with one’s style and personality.

You may also consider your lifestyle along with how much time you spend in a room. Choosing the wrong colours may clash with what you want to feel and in effect messing with the whole harmony of one’s home.

Harmony is defined as the pleasing arrangements of the different aspects of a design. When choosing the colours for your rooms, consider the ambiance you want the room to induce on the people in it. You may want a dining room that is for sociable people. Choosing bright colours invigorate and induce life and energy on the people in the room. On the other hand, if you want your living room to have a calming and relaxing effect, choose calming colours like blue and lavender. Girl’s rooms could be pink to give it a feeling of warmth and vibrance.

Some traditional colour scheme types are monochromatic, analogous and complementary. The monochromatic colour scheme is made up of different tones and shades within a specific colour hue. This scheme is the easiest to conceive and these colours usually blend harmoniously. The analogous colour scheme is made up of three colours beside each other on a colour-wheel. The complementary colour scheme is made up of colours on opposite sides of the colour wheel. This scheme is harder to plan but the results can be very beautiful if done correctly.
