Whites and Neutrals
Whites and neutrals such as gray, beige, tan or cream, create a clean, airy backdrop for any design or color scheme. White is often associated with cleanliness, innocence and goodness. Because they are neutral, these colors can be calming, and they make a room feel larger and more airy. To add drama, while keeping things calm and spacious, add pops of color with furnishings and fabrics.
To make a room feel larger, light to mid-tone shades are the way to go. Rich, saturated colors such as grey or chocolate brown tend to make a room feel small and cozy and bring the walls inward. In addition to color, consider the framing finish. Glossy surfaces reflect light, and this helps to expand the space.
Blues remind us of the sky and the sea, making them calming, tranquil and serene. Pale blues also give a room a feeling of spaciousness. Pale to mid-tones are ideal for creating a soothing environment because they invoke feelings of tranquility. Darker hues tend to be dramatic and energizing. When choosing a blue for your room, keep in mind that some shades can feel cold or bleak, so accessorize with warm colors such as yellow or red, and provide lots of light to overcome this problem.
