How about a bright look of the home with some dark colors? People are usually scared of flaunting with darker shades be it the wall colors, accessories, furniture and the lights. A careful combination of dark and light colors can give an excellent look to the home. Bedroom, dining room, living room and kitchen are some key areas of the home that demand a lot of attention.
Adding some immense chandeliers to the rooms will make the place seem more graceful. The traditional look of the room can be made beautiful by using handmade art works like wrought iron chandeliers, paintings, some handmade craft pieces would also be another great idea. Using some centralized chandeliers that are big and have excellent crystal work will give a glow to the whole area and it is usually recommended for dining and living rooms.
Colors! Don’t be scared to experiment. Though it is true that neutral and light shades like white, pale, blue and pink will make the place appear big, but using a combination of light and dark would give a great theme. Painting one single wall in dark tones like maroon, red, black and orange will be a great thing to do.
To match these dark colors contrasting shades of light ones like pale and off-white on other walls would be an excellent color combination. The light shades will help to reflect light and the darker tone will make the place look warm, cozy and elegant. Apart from this one can even choose to have those dim and diffused light interiors by adding some faucets and spotlights in ceilings and walls. They even act as good highlighters for the room like bedroom and give a warm, cozy and stress-free feeling.
The use of traditional style yellow light conditions are still prevalent and are mostly used to highlight the key areas like installing small chandeliers that are fixed on wall would help to enhance the painting or other art pieces placed in the near vicinity.
To add more charm to any room be it a commercial or personal segment it is recommended to install large windows as it would let in enough light and make the place look more open as well as spacious. Keeping the main room which is usually the living room in an area that is having a good exposure to sunlight would save on lighting and will also keep it ventilated.
In case the home or the area is big enough then black, orange and maroon shade would be a best thing. Matching the other accessories like sofas, cabinets, cupboards, curtains and other small stuff would make the place worth admiring.
A well lit area and home is always a reflection of optimistic thoughts and spreads a lot of energetic vibes and makes the people feel at ease.
