Your home is a reflection of your identity and personal style; some people find that timeless classic interior design is a safe option and the go-to while others prefer modern and edgy interiors. In designing your home, it is not only about the furnishing and the lighting; colors play a great role in the overall look and feel of your house. Besides their power in accentuating the furniture, interior colors can affect your mood. The choice of the color palette highly depends on the interior design style. Here is a simplified guide on how you can play around with colors.

For Timeless Elegant Interiors, Opt for White, Off-white, Beige, & Grey


These colors create the illusion of a bigger space in your home. White, off-white and beige are all neutral colors that never go out of style, and their trendier alternative is grey. If you opt for this color palette, infuse a lot of wood in your furniture or accessories to add warmth to your place.


For Vibrant Interiors, Opt for Red, Orange, & Yellow

Red is the most intense color of them all, it can intensify the energy levels of the room and tends to trigger hyperactivity. For this reason, avoid using this color in bedrooms. Bring rays of sunshine to your home with yellow, a color that is linked to joy and happiness. Yellow is ideal for dining rooms, and living rooms. As for orange, it is an energetic color that evokes feelings of excitement and encouragement hence, it is ideal for the playroom, or exercising room if available.

For Serene Interiors, Opt For Blue & Green

Green is a restful color that has an amazing calming effect. It is also known for relieving stress, which makes it a great color for bedrooms, living rooms, and kitchens.  Fill your home with soothing and calming effects of blue, like those great feelings you get from sitting in front of the sea. This serene color helps you chill and unwind, and has been proven effective in lowering blood pressure.  Use blue in bedrooms and bathrooms.

For Edgy and Sophisticated Interiors, Opt for Black & Dark Purple.


Black is the king of colors, it’s chic, gives depth and creates opulence but cannot be used as a main color, rather in small doses just to accentuate the overall look. As for dark purple, it is rich and sophisticated and its richness is further manifested with wood infusion. It can be used in home offices as well as bedrooms.
