Colours are something that plays a very important role in our day to day life. They are irreplaceable with anything and when it comes to our homes, colours affect a lot many things starting from the ambience, the vision, the thinking, the actions, the reactions and lot of things.

Not to forget that painting the walls is not the only option to add colours to your place. There are lots of ways about adding colours starting from the wallpapers, the antiques, the furniture, the decorations, the flooring and so on.

Here are some of the different ways about how one can add colours to the home:

MULTI COLOR WALLPAPER AND THE FLOORING

As you can clearly see that overall only white paint is done everywhere but the multi-coloured wallpaper is the main foci of this living room. Even the flooring is done in orange patterns so as to create a very different kind of look. Not all the sofas are in white colour, there are blue sofas that are actually responsible for the overall enhancement of the space.

PINCH OF COLORS ARE ALWAYS GOOD

Yellow and blue are the two colours used here in the picture. Small pinches of bright colours are captivating the overall look. The carpet being blue in colour, is the main element of the overall place. The yellow table is highlighting the wall to the best extent. This picture clearly defines that painting the wall is definitely not the only way of adding colours to your place.

MORE THAN JUST WHITE

It’s not always the white base, where the colours could be added. The black is even more royal, more happening and definitely more captivating. Here, the pinch of orange has played a great role by highlighting few areas of the kitchen. The highlighter wall is a perfect mixture of black and orange colour of strokes that acts as a beautiful part of the kitchen and definitely a miraculous effect on the overall ambience.

MIXED PATTERNS

The multi coloured patterns are enhancing the overall look of the space by not just following a single colour. This kind of style actually helps in removing monotony of any particular colour. The cushions, curtains, and other decorative pieces are wholly responsible for adding the colour to the picture. The pattern of horizontal lines on the floor also creates an illusion of large space available that totally goes in contrast with the available furniture of the living area.

CONTRASTS ARE IMPORTANT TOO

The kind of furniture used here is the clear indication of how the monotony of white color is broken in the overall ambience of the picture. The combination of pink, blue, green is just more than what I call “perfect”.  Such a soothing and pleasure to eyes kind of a look is presented. Even the antique chandeliers are playing their part in a beautiful manner. Once the vision goes up, the viewer would no longer be able to see the boring white ceiling because of such beautiful chandelier.

THE PICTURE PERFECT

The floral curtains and the colourful painting on the wall are the most recognizable elements of the picture. The overall ambience is totally dependent on these elements. Both these elements are balancing in nature and did not create any heavy impact on the viewer. The kind of chandelier used is breaking the modern monotony and undertaking a traditional kind of look for the viewer.
